En route to Cusco

I didn’t want to wake up this morning. The altitude affected me more than I thought. I didn’t sleep much since my headache was keeping me up all night. We packed quickly and went downstairs for our last breakfast here in Puno. Coca tea, fruit, and an Ibuprofen was all I needed. Yes, drugs are […]

Uros Islands!

May 31, 2022 We touched down at Arequipa and met up with one of Leo’s mission connections.

God answers prayer!

I get to play interior designer at my job and it’s quite fun. Today I wished I had a few things on hand to place in one of our units but didn’t: a tall plant and something to place on a skinny table behind the couch. As I walked some trash to the dumpster, I […]
