11011-peru-funWhat an amazing few days this has been! Friday, we poured all the concrete for the ceiling of the storehouse. It was hard work and the kids were busy non-stop from 7AM until noon. Breakfast was eaten in shifts, with a few snacks brought out to the work site to help keep morale up. They were so proud of themselves when they finished! We were able to have our first evangelism presentation for the local children on Saturday. Working with a local missionary couple, several team members and a leader drove through one of the poorer neighborhoods in Puerto Maldonado with a giant truck picking up kids and their parents to bring them to the presentation site. You should have seen Abby´s face when she got out of the truck, yelling excitedly, “You´ll never believe how many kids we got!” The rest of the team walked around to houses close by inviting the children to come. Over 60 children showed up to play games, watch puppets, and follow along with the songs! Emily did a short teaching on John 3:16 and Chloe provided an explanation of the wordless bracelets which the whole team then helped to hand out. These bracelets were extra special as Emily´s church family made them for her to bring to Peru and hand out. Thank you! After the presentation, the whole team went out to do some souvenier shopping and went to eat at local resturants. Sunday, was another big day as after participating in a local church, we were able to take a riverboat ride from town to the property that the orphanage is on. The kids were so excited! Kara said it was one of the best experiences yet. God is continuing to bless our work and the team members are all recovering from their colds. Thank you so much for your prayers and keep those letters coming, the kids thrive on them!



  1. I think it would have been better to not put something in the report that is not true. Because the team members were NOT all recovering from their colds at the time this was sent to TMI. It’s best to tell the truth.

    • Debbie, I reported what the leaders sent me. I would not knowingly not tell the truth and I don’t think the leaders would either.

  2. Greetings in Christ from Cochabamba! And from a friend of one of the TMI kids, also on a summer trip working with the Anglican Church here. Praise God He’s prospering your work. You all are in my prayers.

  3. There was no mention of Dustin Stuckey having to go to the hospital this morning with pneumonia. Please pray he gets well quickly. Is he the only one on this team that is still sick?
