Peru Team - Day One

We have arrived! Our team got into Lima, Peru late Friday night around 2 am. Since we were all pretty exhausted from the long travel, we had a leisurely morning. Before heading out for lunch, the team gathered and a few people shared their testimonies. It's been a blessing to hear everyone's journey and how the Lord works so wonderfully in each of our lives. We had an unforgettable lunch at a popular local restaurant, Pardo's. It consisted of chicken thighs, french fries, and a delicious local drink, chicha morada!

After lunch, we got to go to Dios Es Amor, the child development center. After taking a breathtaking group photo on the roof, Pastor Daniel shared some amazing stories with the group. He shared his story of how he came to Christ, how he met his wife, and the history of the center. It was so powerful to hear the ways the Lord worked and is working in the church and the center. We ended our time at the center by attending their youth meeting. It was a time of crazy games, laughter, bad Spanish (on our part), impressive English (on their part), and the presence of the Lord. We are blessed to get to worship and fellowship with this church family. Only one day has passed, but I believe the Lord is already working in powerful ways. I am excited to see what He has for us tomorrow.
