Sunday was Maurice and Gill's 51st wedding anniversary (congratulations!) and was also Independence Day in Bolivia's neighbour, Peru (again, congratulations). For Sunday lunch we were all invited to a Peruvian restaurant where we were joined by many church members.
Most guests opted for an asado - a South American barbecue consisting of several different meats. We could post a photo but as we're a bit embarrassed by the size of the portions let's just say that we all had a good meal, and didn't need another for quite some time.
Once again, our congratulations to Maurice and Gill, and thanks for all they are contributing to this venture.
If you don't have much time, which are the must-see articles that capture the essence of the story? Try these...
Join us on a journey through mountain scenery to the beautiful blue water of Lake Titicaca, then get a glimpse of life at the sharp end as we visit the church in a shack. Find out how a playground was restored and a whole church renewed, and be inspired by a church's local outreach and a group of young people bringing hope to a deprived area.
Then read all the rest!
The articles on this page are dated according to when the events described actually happened. During the trip we tried to keep the blog as up to date as possible but there was often a day's delay - occasionally more - in making uploads, so the blog posts generally have later dates.
