Trevor & Christine Morrow
Trevor trusted the Lord as his personal Saviour when he was a teenager. Some years later he was baptised and became a member of the Baptist church in Cookstown. After serving ten years as a Police officer in Northern Ireland, Trevor sensed God's call into full-time Christian work. Christine committed her life to the Lord at the age of seven. In her teenage years she was baptised and joined Cookstown Baptist Church. After she completed her teacher training at Stranmillis College, Christine taught in two different Primary Schools in Newtownards. Trevor and Christine were married in 1990 and became members of Newtownards Baptist Church. After being on a Baptist Missions Summer Team to Peru in 1991, they both sensed God's call to work there and began their service with Baptist Missions in 1992.
After arriving in Peru in 1992, Trevor and Christine spent their first three years in Moquegua; teaching and administration work among missionary children, as well as preaching and teaching in the Moquegua area. A new church-planting work began on the outskirts of Moquegua with the assistance of the Central Church, which has known God's blessing to the present day. In 1997 another new work began in Ilo and again God has blessed this effort and there is now a thriving Baptist church in La Pampa, Ilo. In 2002, God led Trevor & Christine to the village of Ite, approx. 35 minutes drive south from Ilo, and they have had the privilege of seeing another new work begin there. This work has been difficult for lots of reasons, but again God is at work and lives are being changed for His glory. Ite is also the village where a new Camp and Conference Centre is located, which is "home" for various ministries and a resource for churches and other groups in South Peru. In 2013 Trevor & Christine began another church plant in the Port of Ilo with the help of two families. Together they have been involved in evangelism, teaching and counselling, as well as providing pastoral care for those who are attending the church.
