Our Ministry

In 1998, God impressed upon the heart of an assistant pastor and deputy sheriff in Fort Myers, Florida, the great need for help in a deaf ministry in Peru, South America. Joe Kotvas answered God’s call, and for over twenty years, the Kotvas family has been leading Efata Ministries, a special ministry focused on reaching the deaf and hearing in Lima, Peru, and beyond.
