I'm headed back to Peru Ya'll

Last year God tugged on my heart.  That was all it took.  I signed up to travel on an airplane for 8 hours, ride a bus for 8 hours, (from the sea to the mountains) and finally land at 10,000 feet in elevation in Waudas, Peru.   

 Our team hiked through the Andes mountains and handed bibles out to the native Quechua people.  People who have never had the bible translated in their native language.  It was so amazing!!  The faces of these people lit up when they were handed a bible they could read. The Quechua people are a people that have been forgotten by many, oppressed by many and are trying to survive off of the land.  We planted the seeds so that the organization we traveled with, AWI, could come back to the village and help it thrive with Jesus. 

I loved every minute of it.  The challenge of the hike, the camping, the interaction with the Peruvians.  I left a piece of my heart at 13, 000 feet elevation and I am happy to say that I am going back to leave more. 

Please pray for me and my team.  We will be gone June 20-June 29.  It is a very hard and long travel.  This trip is hard both physically and mentally.  Please pray that God will protect us and guide us through all situations.  If you are able to give financially please go to www.southbrookchurch.com and follow the donation links to my name. 
Thank you for your prayers.
