In January 2015, David saw an international orphan choir perform at a nursing home in Houston, Texas. They invited him to go to Peru when the Peruvian children returned home that May. On that trip, David met dozens of families, visiting their homes and parishes in eleven remote villages - high in the mountains of southern Peru - in the Colca Valley.
David made two trips to the Colca Valley with other non-profits working there before he assembled his own team.
