I hope all is well with you all....I wanted to let you know about next summer and our decision to go to another area in Peru.....Huancavelica.
Ayacucho has been a wonderful and rewarding experience but we feel that it is time to move on to a area that is in dire need of our assitance. Our dates for the mission trip are July 15th-19.
We will join a dear friend, Ralph Kuon, who actually started the Ayacucho Mission many years ago and has now moved to Huancavelica..an even poorer area of Peru. The major changes for us will be the travel arrangments..there is no airport, so we must take a bus , leaving Lima, Friday the 12th, at midnight..ariving 10 hours later...the altitude is higher so we will need time to adjust to the change.
This area is a mining area and they have made arrangements..as their way of giving back..to cover the expense of everyone for the bus and hotel expenses. There are several orphanges that we can continue our support! I have added Ralph to this email so if you have any questions..he will be happy to answer them!!
Thank you all..I hope that you will continue in this new mission with us!!
