Shalom, Arecipa, Peru: As Director of the Colegio Internacional in Arequipa, Peru, (School motto “Not I but Christ”) Dennis Smith, one of or Lay Ministers, oversaw the building and inauguration of a modern school which educates some 1,300 pupils aged from 5-18. A Day Centre for disabled children has since been added. A special curriculum for children with learning difficulties has been approved by the Peruvian Ministry of Education.
