Street Boys of Peru


Rejected, homeless

Scrambling, hiding, surviving

Abandoned, despised, now welcomed, embraced

Learning, working, living

Accepted, treasured

God’s children


 Written with love for my friends, Marty and Paul, who have served Jesus, loving the people of Peru for decades. To God be the glory.

The story is told in the book Southern Cross by Paul Clark.
