Up in Huancayo

Hey All.

Made it to Huancayo on the crazy bus ride. Pretty good trip all around. Not near as much barfing as expected. Tamarrah made a few trips to the washroom in the back, but she is feeling much better now.

We had a New Years Eve service at Pastor Miguel's church. It was great time, and went till 11:00pm. We then made ourselves to the main square in town, and rang in the new year with all the locals. It was pretty wild. They light off all kinds of firecrackers, and sell them right on the street. They also burn little fires all over the place, right in the middle of the street....whatever they can find. Makes the whole place look like a war zone, but everyone is well behaved.

We had another New Years Day service at Pastor Miguels church. We did more puppets, worship, and Bruce is preaching up a storm out here. Everything is being well received by the Peruvian people.

Here are some photos of these latest events. Thanks, and God Bless.

We head out to the jungle tomorrow, so it may be a few days before posting again.

Photos are in the following order:
- puppets at kids service in Lima
- child from above service
- Local lima beach we visted
- same local beach
- Bruce preparing for bus ride
- Worship in Huancayo
- Puppets in Huancayo
- Ringing in the New Year at 11,000 ft above sea level.

    aah! Now I'm missing you, Bruce... -- I mean you all (ha!)

    We had a great morning here @ Yeschurch. Aaron spoke very well and then we all shared communion together. The kids program went well too -- they tried to heat that big room with my little heater...

    You are all missed.

    Happy New Year,

    Hope you're feeling better Tamarah. Hope you all had lots of fun last night. The weather is very cold here, lots of slush. We miss you Tamarah, But we wish you and the team the best!

    Love, The de Vries's

    I admit it, I don't have a special friend to hug. I was just so jealous of Barb...
    Have a great time in the jungle.

    Some of our friends came over this afternoon & we celebrated the New Year with a campfire in the backyard. The closest we got to the beach was sitting beside the pool (didn't do the Polar Bear Plunge!!) The chili did warm the insides though.

    From past memory - Rachel probably would have gone in pool!!

    Lots of luck in the jungle. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Everyone,
    So glad to hear that there was a washroom on the bus-seems like there was some cause for concern!!!Are you going to try and celebrate New Year's here the same way next year?
    Hey, Howard, want to see you in those pictures!!!
    We'll be praying that the mosquitoes stay away from you in the jungle.
    Love from all of us of the Vandne Enden ya
