Who We Are
Carlos & Meredith Block
Carlos was born in Perú and in his early 20's moved to the US with his family. In California he pastored a church with a dream of returning to bring the Gospel to the indigenous people of Peru. Many years after the passing of his late wife he reconnected with Meredith who had been living in Perú serving in ministry for 20 years. In 2012 they married and began ministry among the Yanesha people together. Now 10 years into the ministry they are excited to see this dream of the Cetpro advance the mission.
