I have been in Lima since Wednesday night/Thursday morning. My plane did not arrive until around 1am Peru time, which is 2am Eastern Time. Peru is an hour behind because of daylight savings time in the states. Currently, the missionaries have been taking me and the other intern, Jillian, around the city of Lima and getting us accustomed to the culture and people. We have been going through the schedule for the summer and the places we will be going. On Monday, our summer of travels begins. Billy (missionary) and I will be picking up a team from the airport and heading on our way to Ica while Billy's wife Kate and Jillian will be headed to Kusi, another home. Ica is a desert city about 5 hours (bus ride) south of Lima. We will be visiting/staying/working at Scripture Union's boys home in Ica. Peru is a country of rich culture and wonderful food, it has been very neat to experience Lima the past couple days.
Today, we spent the majority of our day at a place called "Hope House''. It is the only home that is specifically for girls that Scripture Union is affiliated with and is passing on to another organization called One For Others. It was an awesome experience to get to hang out with some of the girls and get to know them (pictures of them are on the photos tab). A few of them accepted Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and a couple wanted to rededicate their life! God is so amazing and this was like a kick-started for the ministry that is to come during this summer.
PRAYER REQUESTS: Young people here in Peru will continue to accept Jesus and want to follow him, the teams that are coming in will be focused and have a desire to serve, that the Lord would continue stretch and grow me and the other intern Jillian, also for words to say when we forget some Spanish Vocabulary - also boldness to not be nervous when speaking Spanish
