Pablo Saccsara was born in Ayacucho, Peru, to Quechua speaking parents. While still a young boy, he and his family had to leave his hometown because of terrorist threats. Kusi Sauñe was born and raised in Peru, half Quechua Indian and half North American. Pablo and Kusi both grew up together in Chosica, Peru, where both sets of parents worked with the Indigenous people of Peru.
Pablo graduated from Columbia International University in 2009 with degrees in Bible and communications. Kusi also graduated from Columbia International University with degrees in Bible and TEFL. They fell in love and were married in 2006; and upon finishing their studies, moved back to Peru in 2009 to work with the Runa Simi Quechua mission. In Peru, Pablo and Kusi have been working as Inca Link missionaries serving alongside the Runa Simi Mission in partnership with the One Hope children’s ministry. Pablo and Kusi have 2 boys: Gabriel, 6, and Andres, 3.
They have been traveling and working with pastors and leaders from the Andes and Amazon areas of Peru. They also coordinate the translation of One Hope materials for children and youth, working with translators from different language groups. They distribute these evangelistic materials for children and youth, sharing the love of Jesus and the good news of the Gospel. Pablo and Kusi also work in the communications department of Runa Simi. Pablo helps produce Bible-based media materials in Spanish and Quechua and helps with technical issues at the Runa Simi Center. They are also supporting other Runa Simi ministries such as family and marriage. More recently, they are also serving in their local Quechua church.
