Julio & Olga Chiang

Julio and Olga are missionaries in Lima, Peru. Julio learned to ride a motorcycle at the age of 8 and God granted him much success as a professional motocross rider winning 10 National and 2 Latin American titles. In 2004, Julio and Olga moved to Pucallpa, Peru, and used motocross as a platform for sharing the gospel, which led to the planting of Mil Palmeras Church. During their time serving in Pucallpa, they shared their passion for discipling and training godly leaders within the context of the local church. After many years ministering in Pucallpa, they felt the Lord’s leading to Lima to start the Lima Initiative.
