We have had an incredible short term team season this year! One of our highlights was having Covenant Presbyterian Church, Little Rock, AR here for the first time. They are one of our amazing supporting churches that faithfully and generously gives financially, prays for us, sends us care packages and keeps up with us throughout the year. They were such servants and only God knows all the seeds that were planted during their hard working week with us. They served through word and deed in our new Arevalo hospital on the outskirts of our city. Here are some highlights from the week. . .
The month of July is a fun one for us. We not only celebrate the independence of our home country, but Peru also celebrates it’s independence on July 28th. It’s a pretty big deal and girls have lots of school activities and get 2-3 weeks of vacation. Here are few fun pictures of our youngest two girls representing the Andes mountain region at a “taste of Peru”.
Year after year, we have the privilege of having a team of 30 plus medical staff from First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS come and serve in Peru. They serve long and hard all week long helping many patients in the Cajamarca and the outer lying Andes communities. Allen enjoys joining them each year to translate and offer pastoral counseling to the patients. It was a great week, but we are thankful to have him back on the coast with us.
Allen prefers to take a 8 hour overnight bus ride up the Andes each year to get the best dental care from Dr. Danny Story.Photo credit to Steve Hill (top 4) & Caleb Sutton (bottom pic) for these pictures
