2015 - March/April/May Mission Trip - part 2

Wednesday, April 1 - Starting part two of the blog for this trip to Peru Mission. We hope to make a lot of progress with the construction completion, making more of the mission property useable for mission work. At the same time we are introducing English classes, working with the children and adults on the weekly teaching and study meetings, and also meeting with our partners and others with the hope of expanding the utility of a more capable property.

2015 - March/April/May Mission Trip - part 1

March 11, Wednesday - Having left California and traveled all day Tuesday (5 hour layover in Dallas) we arrived after midnight Wednesday morning but didn't get to sleep until 4am. With many construction plans at the mission as our primary goal, we also need to do some finalization on our Lima property which we are putting forth for a hostel stop over for visiting missionary small groups. We need to finish some plans around bed acquisitions, new window installations and refrigerator. It is currently ready to sleep 6 but we hope to push that up to 10 on the outside. Sleeping in a bit on Wednesday, with a late 1pm breakfast, after getting some minor groceries accross the street. We then went to buy a new refrigerator.
