Day 4

We began the day hiking along a long, beautiful road.  We came upon a couple who was washing potatoes in the river.  Our nationals called them up and we shared the story of Jesus with them.  We also enjoyed fun van ride, saw plenty of animals, and went out on the town on Tuesday night.  We even grabbed cup of coffee at the local Starbucks.  I enjoy mingling in the city because it gives me a great opportunity to speak Spanish with the locals.  Although I am improving, I am great at speaking bad Spanish.

My brother was not a fan of van rides, which were literally, “white knuckle” adventures.

We walked for miles and didn’t see many people, but we were able to reach into the villages in the mountains.

As one of the nationals talked with them, they began to weep and hug us. It was a powerful moment because they had been disconnected from their church due to family disagreement.

The city of Cusco is always in the distance. There is never a bad view.

Jeremy and Clayton were on a team together. It was awesome having them together. Jeremy was able to manage Clayton’s blood sugar without me worrying. Here they are climbing a mountain to share the story of Jesus.

Clayton loved seeing the pigs. It was one of his favorite things. Jeremy even led a woman to Jesus in a pig pen!
