Urumbamba (small town outside of Cusco) was incredible and the young guys were so hard to say "so long" to. I will get to see them again when I am with another team later this summer but the guys in Cusco were a blessing and they even challenged me. It was really fun to jam out to some Christian reggeaton (didn't know that existed haha) with them and loved singing along to Hillsong with them. They have a heart for the Lord and they see his hand in the everyday things of life. I was able to hear about some of Hector's (house father in Cusco) testimony while he has been the leader of the home and that challenged my faith and stretch me as well. Being able to hear stories and God's work in people's lives puts me in awe of the creator everytime. I am thankful we serve a living God who hears the deepest cries of our hearts.
So I titled this post Yungay because that is where we are headed for our next few days. There is a boys' home in Yungay called Kusi. We will be helping them with some necessary building projects at the home and spending time with the boys (which is probably a given haha). The city of Yungay is fairly a young city due to a horrendous earthquake that burried the large city about 45 years ago. It sits at the base of one of the largest mountains in Peru. To get there, we have a 10 hour bus ride (give or take 2 hours because traffic and you never know what you will encounter in Peru).
PRAYER REQUESTS: The Lord would allow us to achieve and complete the buidling projects that we need to take care of in Kusi; that I would allow space for the Holy Spirit to work in the hearts of the team and the young guys; that I would not just go through the motions of doing ministry while hear and conitinue to know that the Lord is moving in powerful ways; finally, that I would simply be thankful and be able to just sit in the presence of the Lord and seek after him
