Alan Garcia: 55.5%
Ollanta Humala: 44.5%
Thank you for praying for the church in Peru. We still believe that Alan Garcia would bring the most peace to our work. There was talk that Ollanta eventually wanted all foreigners out of the country. I’m sure that was a rumor, but the attitudes towards gringos would have been the same. Alan Garcia is not the most conservative person in Peru in his economic and political leanings, but we can leave the country with no fear of getting back in.
Our family will be traveling this week to Ecuador and Lima. We have to finish up our visa work for the girls. Please pray that God would grant us safety, especially in the post election environmnet in Peru.
