Plaza de Armas

Saturday afternoon we met up with a group from Extreme at the Plaza de Armas. It is a beautiful area that looks quite different from the neighborhood we live in. It was nice to meet other people from the organization (and to have conversations in English:) We walked around, the kids fed the birds, we walked through shops and had dinner on a balcony overlooking the plaza. These are the only pictures I have taken so far and they really don't give you any idea of Peru because this area looks like it could be in the US...but, it is a gorgeous area, especially at night!

Kai with Isaiah and Landon (other Extreme kiddos:) feeding the birds.

Kai chasing the birds...but behind him is a woman in Peruvian dress...they are beautiful!

Hi guys,
This week I was teaching a lesson on the calling of the 12 disciples and my class realized that you are "fishers of Men." You are a modern day example of leaving your lives, jobs, and families when Jesus said "Come, follow me." Thank you for being such an amazing example to us all!
Love you! VickyZ
