VBS of a Lifetime
Arrow International Ministry, Inc. Begins
Rebecca Archer and her father, Arnold Strand began working with Harvest Evangelistic Association (HEA)in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico, to provide pastor and worker seminars for training in children ministry, and 5 – day Vacation Bible School packets to local churches in Chiapas, Mexico, in 2001. In that year, materials for 5,000 children were provided for the very first Vacation Bible School of A Lifetime.
This partnership with Greg McClannahan and HEA lead to the birthing of Arrow International Ministry to meet the need for Biblical training materials for third world countries. The ministry has continued to grow, and in June of 2009, churches throughout Chiapas, Mexico, were provided materials and training to reach 25,000 children through the five day Vacation Bible School of A Lifetime meetings that are provided through Harvest Evangelistic Association each year.

Missions In South America
The first South American country AIM is working in is Peru, teaching workshops to children workers throughout the country. The need for this type of training is a mountainous task that is appreciated and valued by the many pastors and workers that attend these workshops. Along with the workshops, Rebecca writes Sunday School and Vacation Bible School materials that are distributed throughout Peru as well as other several other countries at no charge

God has also opened doors to help train pastors at Peru Mission, in Lima. Peru Mission is a Bible school that trains young men and women from the mountains and jungles of Peru, the Deep Peru, who otherwise would not have been able to afford to receive training, to be the pastors that they become. After receiving training, these pastors return to their cities and villages to preach and teach the Kingdom of God through Christ Jesus. Some of these pastors have traveled to other countries to labor in God’s kingdom as missionaries.
