WOW is about all we can say.
Quick run down of the day- pllllease ask us for details later, we’re wiped, attempting to reflect on this experience and planning for another full day.
8 boys left for The Juniper Tree
8:30 girls left with Brenda (Tyler’s wife) to go grocery shopping for “Love Gifts” for some of the ladies of the Oasis Care Center then we went to visit them in their homes. We we’re welcomed into 3 homes and it was moving to say the least. No words could do it justice. We visited with these women, whose stories, we could never compare our own to, encouraged them through scripture, then would pray for them and their family.
Noonish girls arrived at the Tree to help complete the boys mighty hard work, we broke for lunch and then did a good clean up of all our materials, and unloaded some more materials that “Mucho Machi” (house dad who has the only license to drive the Kids Alive bus, only speaks Spanish, but we did teach to say “Sup Bro”, Richardo also tries to teach him English…all around GREAT DUDE) had brought back to the Tree.
1:30 went to some ruins, super cool to see the the desert meet the ocean, with a bit of lush valley in the mix. So thankful we opted to ride the tour, instead of hike the tour.
3:30 picked Edwardo up from The Tree and said more goodbyes….gross.
4 hit Manchay and dropped Edwardo off for the last time, again, another goodbye…gross.
4:30 hit our neighborhood (Lo Molina) and said goodbye to Tyler…we were super sad to say goodbye to this legit dude. What’s great is that he totally started making cracks on us, by the end of the week, praise the Lord for the hearts of these missionaries here!
packed, regrouped, hung out
6:30 dinner YUM YUM YUM AGAIN, AGAIN, AGAIN.
7:30 went to the Lima mall.
10 arrive back to apartment…and now reflecting.
goodnight and God Bless.
it’s been great.
