Day 6- Cusco 2014

On Thursday, we truly saw God do great things.  We hosted an eyeglass clinic in Saqsaywaman that was a huge success.  We spent the week going to the nearby villages and sharing the gospel and then inviting people back to the location of the church we were planting.  Though we had seen some success, we primarily would see about 10 people a day or so.  On Thursday, we saw more than 40 people show up to the eye clinic.

I had the opportunity to preach to the entire group, which was more than a hundred people. I enjoy preaching with a translator and Alexis did a great job!
7Joel&Alger
My translator, Alger, was awesome. He could speak English, Spanish, and Quechua. He also had a great heart for people.
7Joel&lunas
The night was so much fun and it was an opportunity to see some old friends. The Luna family hosted me last year. Pastor Luna oversaw the entire church campaign this year. He did a great job. It was also great to see young Frana as well!
