As we prepare to accompany the people of Chimbote, Peru, in various nutrition, business, educational, and art projects, we remember that the city grew so rapidly because thousands of people left the highlands of Peru thinking that they could find work in the seaside city. Our group is exploring what life is like in an Andean region and some of the rich history of the Incas. With Cuzco as our base, we have taken tours and explored many Inca sites. People 500 years ago hewed, polished, and carried stones, building these amazing temples.

If we are alive, we are in relationship. We were created as social beings by a Trinitarian God, a God in constant relationship with the Son and the Spirit. When speaking about, or defining, a theology of fundraising, one must keep this image in mind. Questions begin to arise. How can I live in this community, in this world, which cries out for alleviation of hunger, of thirst, for a home, a country, and not be touched?
