I haven’t posted any pictures for a while so here’s a photo update from the past few weeks…..
Titicaca – In November we went to the shores of Lake Titicaca for a baptism ceremony. Our bus did blow out a tire along the way, but we made it to the beach and 6 people were baptized in the frigid water, showing their decision to follow Christ. Baptisms in Lake Titicaca, how amazing, these baptisms will always be some of my fondest memories.
Turkey – Although Thanksgiving was not the day I had expected, I ended up being frustrated and crying at the cultural differences and the fact I was missing my family, my home, all things familiar. But, overall, it was a good day with good time shared with my family here, good food, shopping for ugly Christmas sweaters, making pumpkin cheesecake and watching fuzzy internet quality good ol’ American football with the guys. A special thanks to Amanda for all the time she spent (literally 3 days) making our Thanksgiving favorites and for taking all the pictures!
Tombs – Last week the Extreme Director, Brian, came up here to Puno for a review of the past 11 months of work. We shared stories of what God is doing in our communities, in us and through us. It was a great time to review the work we are doing and review the goals with just over seven months left in Puno. The next day, Brian took us out to celebrate, we went to Sillustani, ancient pre-Inca tombs north of Puno. It was a fun day to hang out as a Puno family and see more of our beautiful surroundings.
