Bud and Laura Lenz left Texas 15 years ago to start church plants in Peru. Five years later they uncovered their true calling; being mama and papa to abandoned, orphaned and abused children, giving them a second chance to grow up in an atmosphere filled with unconditional love, compassion and acceptance – a refuge. They have “a home” in the jungle and the mountains…We have partnered with the Lenz’ many times over the last 15 years. They, their nine biological children and many of their “adopted Peruvian children” have served with many of our medical teams in the jungles and mountains of Peru. Below is only one of the many life changing stories where God has used them:


CERT exists to serve people in dire need of health care. We GO where there is little if any help available, which often takes us into extremely remote locations.

By ministering to physical needs, doors are opened for our teams to minister to spiritual needs thus fulfilling the Great Commission, “…Go and make disciples of all nations…”– Matthew 28: 19-20
