2016 (Aug-Oct) 2nd Mission Trip (5 of 7) - Sanchez Family Returns!

Just waking up in Miraflores, the Sanchez's have yet to depart for the bus terminal.  Hopefully we will have a nice breakfast first, before seeing them off, but good news is we will follow them in two days.  We have a couple of things to do up here before doing so.  

We prepared this property primarily as an arrival and departure location for missionaries and visitors headed down to the mission.  Usually, like the Sanchez's, people arriving in Peru have had a long journey and need a rest (at least for one night) before continuing by bus for 4 hours to Ica and then a 30 minute taxi ride.  Also, more often than not, people arrive in afternoon so if they wanted to continue, they would get to Ica very late and since taxis' out the mission are harder to come by than in the daylight, this is one more reason.  

Anyway, this facility offers sleeping up to 10 people and it give the travels many options to also launch side-trips adding a little tourism on their mission trip.  We continue to work to make peoples travels to the Mission as comfortable and economical as possible.  Please check out our discussion on this in greater detail on our website

2016 (Aug) Video of Hearts & Hands visit to Peru Mission

Short video of the Hearts & Hands Knitting ministry from San Diego, and their visit to Peru. They spent a week training the local villagers, alnd supplying them, for knitting and crocheting. They ran ten classes, 5 for adults and 5 for youth. They brought and left behind spanish 'how to" books, needles, hooks, looms, yarn, and a rewinder. They created a group of four that committed to lead and carry on further training to widen the knowledge base. After leaving the first week we published a schedule and had two adult meetings, the second week, those two meetings continued as well as two yourh meetings. A very large interested base of knitters have formed around the mission and the training received. Thank you Hearts & Hands for your very unique gift to the mission. May we make the most of it.

2016 (Aug-Oct) 2nd Mission Trip - Hearts&Hands, Huacachina, OANSA & more!

This is our travel blog for the second extended 2016 Missionary trip to Peru by LAMA Ministry.  Our main purpose of this trip is to continue to work with the village and their needs but we are also making this trip with a large group from San Diego to teach knitting and crocheting skills to the villagers, with the hope of passing on a marketable skill.  We have great expectations from this trip and are excited to be sharing it with many others.  Please enjoy this blog as it's written and afterwards.

Luciana/Jose's home is caving in - Please consider helping with this home rebuiid mini-project


2016 August 27 - Although we are still about $1000 away from paying for this as built, and it is less than what they need (another bedroom is still needed), we have pressed forward in faith to get this construction underway and behind us on this current trip!  We thank so many of you for your faith offerings and we want you to know that they are being spent specifically on this need. 

By this weekend, the walls and ceiling will be done, and hopefully within a few more days we will have all the electrical, water, sewer done as well, so we can pour the floor and hang the windows and doors.  Layout of this construction will be that, different than the existing 2 rooms that it is attached to, it will have a solid concrete ceiling for future construction of another bedroom upstairs when funds allow.  (Currently the three of them sleep in the bottom of a bunk bed where a 16 year old cousin sleeps in the top bunk. bottom is a double, top is a twin.  They need that 2nd bedroom, but having a secured kitchen and bathroom was the greatest need to resolve immediately and we will have that done this month!). 

We will continue to post pictures of this construction throughout the blog for this trip.  We are so grateful to all of you.  If you can help us to complete the funding of this project, we are so thankful.  Again, always know that your donation is tax deductable and matched 100%.
