Straight from Mirones Bajo, Peru

Wish I could say I was “there” —but I’m not.  But my source is keeping me updated with all the latest news and information so I can do the same HERE for you!

Did I tell you I wanted to be a blog-Missions-Reporter? 🙂

Day 1–These guys have worked hard today.  They were greeted at the site this morning by the amazing and kind people of the church, who welcomed them in the most unique way—in song!

I thought that was just the neatest–sweetest gesture! 

Just for a few details, they are laying brick–some experienced, some learning–all working very hard!

The men that were hired to help (from Peru) mixed the mud for the brick layers.  They were glad when our guys took a lunch break!  To keep this many guys in mud–they had to mix A LOT of dirt. 🙂

Below is the slide show of the day’s events.  You will see some familiar faces.  Pray for these guys whether you recognize them or not.  They are doing hard work–and need to stay healthy!  They need strength–and they need the weather to cooperate!

Jeff said the people are very friendly and appreciative of the work our men are there to do. All smiles all around!

Thank you LORD for safety getting there–and for strength and speed to complete the work YOU have placed before them! We give You all the praise and glory for all that is accomplished in this place of worship–and everywhere their feet step–we claim for YOU! In Jesus name, Amen!

The LOVE of Your SPONSOR (Cafe` Devotion)

Erwin. Pray for him today.

The morning started early. I was awake before 4am. Thinking, praying, wondering what the day would bring.

Little did I know before my feet hit the floor of the life changes that would take place in all of us “first timers” today.

First time on a mission trip.

I wasn’t prepared for the tears that burned–and spilled. My husband, Jeff has been on a few missions trips—but he never warned me about the feeling you get when you look in the eyes of a child and want to help, but realize your limitations.

For the REST of this story–head over to the Cafe`.  I’m sitting there waiting on you–I’ve got a cup already poured and your chair is pulled out! Waiting on YOU!  I can’t wait to see you!  There’s a special message

from my heart to yours!
