Well here are some pics.

today we were not able to do much again, we went to Tsani Grande and tried to minister to the kids but tha just wanted to mes with us, so we talked to the director and left. I think it would be a lot easier to minister to kids if we were girls.

not much done

Today we didn't get very much accomplished. We were supposed to go to Hytro Central to have a bible study with pastor Juan and some of the villagers but our taxi driver didn't show, and when we look for another one there was only one taxi. So I took a nap because I have not been feeling good for the past few days and Jorge went and talk to Theo, the blind guy at the internet cafe. He apparently had a very good conversation with him about the trinity. This weekend was the anniversary of Lampa so there were some parades and contests...and a lot of drunk people. I hope tomorrow will be more productive.

Too busy to write

Sorry I haven't been updating verymuch, we've been really busy. The creative ministry team was in town and they helped alot. We got so maythings started in Lampa while they were here. We strated a church in senor Mendez's building, we started playing musi in the plaza, and we really got the kids of canteria involved. Whe we went there we played some foot ball and did some songs then Tommy, the leader of the CMT, gave a sermon. He asked who wanted to follow Jesus and they all raised their hands. It was really awesome. I thank you for all your prayers. Jorge has a more extensive explonation of what happened this past week. please refer to his for more details.

I'm no preist

Today Jorge, Lenny, Leo and I went to Canteria to do a bible study with the women of the village. That was short lived tho, because come to find out we were not supposed to be there until 11:00 and we got there at 10:00. Later on we went to Tsani Chico to show the passion of the christ film. We gave some bibles to the director and we met some of the women in the village. After the movie was over Jorge had a short sermon about how Christ was risen from the grave. They asked me to pray, so I did, then this lady came to me and asked me to pray for her health and Jorge tried to explain to her that I'm not a preist bit she didn't understand. So I prayed for her and then she kissed my hand. Then we left for Juliaca to get some good food. We ate at this really good Chifa place and I had about 45 people stare at me. Today Jorge and I got to really know Lenny and Leo (our cab driver), and they seemed to be really cool. They're both into racing and music which is pretty much all me. That's about it for today, comeback tomorrow for more!

A new day

Today Jorge and I took a trio to Hytro Central to speak to pastor Juan. I like the village a lot. The only thing I didn't like was the kids throwing rocks at me and shining mirrors in my face the whole time. Pastor Juan was very excited about us going to the village, he thinks that we will bring more intrest to the chirch. So far he has done a good job keeping his congregation but recently it has been struggling. Tomorrow we are planning on going to look for some American food in Juiaca...which is prolly gonna fail. I hope that we can find some food that won't hurt my stomach anymore. Wish us luck.
