Cuzco Kids

Hello All.

It has been a busy last couple of days, so I will try to get a brief update in before leaving for our flight.

We made it to Cuzco safe and sound. Early morning flight out of Lima with no delays. The church here met us at the airport with a nice Mercedez Benz bus. Checked into our hotel, got cleaned up, and then went to their church for the morning service. They had us do the kids service and it was awesome. The team did a great job of worship and puppets, and it was well received. There was approximately 100 kids in attendance for this service! Very inspiring. After the service, the pastor toured us around, and took us to some land he is developing for a kids camp here in Cuzco. Sounds like a possibility for next years mission trip....... We then attended an evening service at another church here in Cuzco. We did joint worship with their team, I shared a brief testimony, and Bruce preached. It was awesome. The Holy Spirit is present in Peru.

The next day (yesterday), was our trip to Manchu Pichu. It was a 4 hr train ride there, then 1/2 hr bus to the site. Total of 9 hrs travelling just to get there and back, but it was well worth it. The Inca ruins are awe inspiring to say the least. Part of the team got a historical tour, and the other part climbed a peak called WaynaPichu. It was 2.5 hrs up and down, but worth every step.

So, it is Tuesday morning now. We are about to leave for our flight back to Lima. We spend the day in Lima with Pastor Caleb and his family, and then fly back home tonight at 1:00am in the morning. We should be in Toronto around noon tomorrow.

I will post more pictures as time permits.

See you soon!
