Our Story

Jill (Riley) and Papo Jualis are serving as missionaries in Huaycan, Peru. (Jill previously served under her ministry Barefoot in Bogota, forming Heart of a Child Ministry in partnership with her husband Papo after marrying in 2019.)

Our mission is to make disciples wherever God sends us in the world, bringing hope and joy to the hopeless and hurting by serving them, loving them, and sharing with them the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

To live with the heart of a child towards God, characterized in part by awe, joy, focus and complete trust in Him, and to disciple others to live in this manner as well. (Mark 10:15)

To bring glory to God through our life and marriage, striving to be an example of the relationship between Christ and the Church.

Our vision is to disciple and build up the church into a unified, self-sustaining, mission-focused church by working with the church leadership to establish regular discipleship groups, Bible studies, small groups, children's ministries, and prayer meetings; training them to be disciple-makers.

Our Impact

We are working with a local church on the outskirts of Lima, Peru.

Our passions are in music and small group ministries, but we plan to lead in various roles to fit the needs of the church.

We will continue to do outreach within the community, as we desire to share the gospel outside the walls of the church where people live and work.

Your donation brings the hope and joy of the gospel inside and outside of the church!

"...you remind me that I’m not alone, that I have a whole team of prayer warriors and financial supporters and friends and family backing me up at all times! I know that I have gotten through this adventure safe and blessed, and been able to be a blessing, because of you. I can’t thank you enough!" -Jill
