The Buena Tierra team work together to spread the Word of God and strengthen the work of the local church in Latin America. We do this through writing and publishing didactic bible teaching materials for children and teenagers. We also provide a range of quality training for those involved in ministry with kids. Our Level 1 and 2 Christian Education courses are a strong foundation for those wanting to be more effective in their kids ministry. I am passionate about teaching teachers! It is a more effective and strategic use of my time and skills, and hopefully will bear much fruit for the Kingdom.
Our strap-line is "Sowing Life for all of life". We believe in the importance of teaching the Bible in clear, relevant and dynamic ways, so that children will come to know Jesus in a personal way. All our lessons are age appropriate and carefully structured to help teachers who come from a range of educational backgrounds teach effectively. I think this is so important, as our aim is to equip and strengthen poorly resourced churches across Latin America.
One of our key resources at the moment is Preventing Child Sex Abuse with Aurora. The manual contains 17 lessons to help children learn how to prevent abuse. We also give 6 hour training sessions on the topic, with practical applications.
Currently I am the team! I have some support from Moisés Infantes. We also have a team of trainers who support us with Holiday Bible Club training and the Christian Education courses. A key part of my role is to develop this group in their understanding and practice. I hope that this team will enable us to train in more places and reach more communities and churches.
Buena Tierra is part of the international ministry Christian Literature Centre (CLC) which took over the El Inca Bookshop company, in December 2019. CLC Peru has 3 shops across the country.
The reach of Buena Tierra is much wider, with materials being sold and used all over Latin America.
