We are safely in Pulcallpa!! Thank you so much for the prayers. The kids are all safe, heathly and happy to be here. We had an amazing reception at the airport. Many of the youth from their church had come to the airport and welcomed us with applause and hugs. It was amazing and humbling! We are staying in dorms with dirt floors, a tin roof and partial walls. But they had the walls decorated with pictures and flowers. They have tried to make the little they have comfortable for us. They are all so warm and welcoming!
It is cooler here in the evenings than Florida and fairly hot during the day, but not as humid – Praise the Lord! We are working hard to get the kitchen organized and usable. Judy (missionary) is checking to see if we may be able to do some presentations in the nearbly school. Her children are still in school for a few more weeks, before their break starts. We were setting up camp yesterday and the team was able to spend a good amount of time playing volley ball and singing songs with many of the kids from the church. It was a blessing to see! The language barrier is difficult, but they are still able to enjoy one another’s company. We are very blessed to have Yami on our team, who speaks fluent Spanish. She has helped us so much! We are all, including the team, trying to adjust to listening to motorcycles, music, and LOUD rooster and chickens all night long. Getting to sleep can be really difficult! But we do love it here and are excited to see what the Lord will do!
