Powlison, Keith & Ruth

Serving in Peru | Acct # 16025


Keith and Ruth met at Columbia Bible College in 1977 and married in 1978. They have four children and five grandchildren. The Powlisons began serving on the foreign mission field in 1984 and are currently serving in Cusco, Peru. They serve with a team of several families in a combination of leadership training, church planting, clinic ministry, and the Josephine House orphanage.

Ruth founded the Josephine House, a home for abandoned and abused children, in 2008. Approximately 35 children have been rescued from abusive and life-threatening situations by this ministry since its inception. Ellie and Emma, both Quechua, joined the Powlison family through adoption. Seeing the family situations that the girls came out of made it even more clear to Keith and Ruth that there was a vital need in Cusco for a ministry to children at risk. The Powlisons realized they couldn’t adopt every child in danger, but they could create a safe place for many through the Josephine House.

Please pray for the Powlisons as they enter into many challenging areas to train and establish national workers in and around Cusco. Contact them at kppowlison@mac.com about ministry possibilities, medical teams, construction teams, or other short-term opportunities.
