My name is Stephanie Edgar. I was born and raised in Peru to global worker parents who are still serving on the field. I accepted the Lord as my Savior at a young age and since the age of 14 knew that God wanted me to be a global worker. I was married in 2006 and a year later my husband and I returned to work in Peru. I consider it a privilege and blessing to be able to serve in the country in which I grew up.
I co-founded a crisis pregnancy center, Heartbeats of Hope, in the jungle region of Peru, in the town of Pucallpa in the Amazon basin and currently serve as its director. This is a passion and vision that God put in my heart at a young age through several incidents involving family friends, including the death of a dear friend from complications of having an abortion. I also have 3 daughters, ages 6, 3, and 1.
- Please pray for us as parents as we raise our girls, that we would be always dependent on the Lord for wisdom, patience, and grace in the daily grind.
- Please pray for the leadership of Heartbeats of Hope as we make decisions about future plans, how to better reach people and minister to the young girls that seek out help.
- Pray for a strong commitment and unity among all of our volunteers who come from different local churches.
- Please pray that a Peruvian director can be raised up for Heartbeats of Hope so that its ministry can continue for years to come, whether I am here or not.
