Snowed In - In The Jungle!!

Hola.

Today was travel day from Pichanaki to Lima. Our bus was suppossed to leave at 9:00am, but never came. Turns out that the pass through the mountains was closed due to snow! Not making it to Lima in time would have been bad, as we would miss our flights to Cuzco, lose our fare money, and not get to worship there. Well, the Lord provided (as He always does), and we were able to rent a combi (mini bus) to take us to Lima. It was a bit of an adventerous ride, but we did make it to Lima by 11:00pm, and all are safe and sound. It did cost us an extra 500 soles, so feel free to wire us some funds :)

Yesterday Pastor Miguel and his family took us to some wonderful waterfalls for sightseeing. It was much nicer then digging, and allowed us to have some good fellowship with him and his family. Jess did some solo white water rafting, and all had a good time swimming under the falls to a hidden cave. Very cool.

Tomorrow (or rather today now as it is past 12:00) we leave for Cuzco, and do 2 worship services. Should be pretty exciting, and the pastor there will be taking us around between services to show us some sights. We get up at 3:30am to catch our flight, so should be a busy day.

Here are some more pics for your enjoyment. They will start with ones from a few days ago, and work up to our day at the falls (they call these falls ยจ"The Veil of the Bride". Very beautiful.

Pics are as follows:
