Our family is in Peru for two years to serve with Extreme Nazarene. We are living in the jungle city of Puerto Maldonado supporting our team of 8 missionaries as 12 churches are planted here in 18 months! Please keep checking in to keep up on our our ministry and adventures in Peru!

This last Sunday we headed to church across town. We actually attend the church that groups are coming down to work on through Extreme. It is a wonderful little congregation, and although I cannot understand much, I do know the people are extremely kind and welcoming.
We started the morning with the Durans picking us up for church. We fit 6 adults and 3 kids in their little VW Bug. It was a "little squished" but we were super thankful for the ride, and the memories!

Who you can't see in this picture is Kai on my lap and Abby under Joshua:)

During church I typically join Kai in Sunday school. I can actually understand the message for the kids so I've got that going for me:) This week they learned "Dios es Santo" (God is Holy)...a great message! The teacher is very sweet and great with the kids...I am very thankful for her and for what she does with what she has! They meet in what seems to be a kitchen area that has an open window into where the adult church is meeting so we are all in close quarters:)

The kids played soccer as they were waiting for church to get out. This is the little area between the two buildings. Church takes place in the building to the right and the building to the left is the one being built. They put in the bricks in the courtyard area in the last week and as you can see there are lots of building supplies all over. The Peruvians are working hard and I look forward to teams coming down to help them!

Below is a picture of part of the unfinished building. If you are coming to Arequipa in August this is the building you will be working on. Thank you, thank you!
