As the world continues to experience a slump in the economy Peru seems to be escaping the worst of the economic crisis. Peru's stock market has grown 132.6% this year and was recently ranked by Bloomberg as the most profitable stock exchange on earth. We've seen tremendous growth in the last several years. We hope that these profits will continue to stabilize Peru into the future.
We're reminded in Scriptures of something far more profitable than even the best stock market. Matthew 6:19-21 says, Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Peru is proving to be a profitable country for investors. As missionaries we see something of eternal value: the souls of man!
