Eddy & Lucho.
We met Lucho and his wife Chipe last year when we spoke briefly at another fellowship here in Lima. After the service Lucho approached Eddy and they began to chat. As the Lord would have it, they had known each other in their youth and now many years later as adults they have both come to put their trust in Jesus. Eddy kept in touch with Lucho the following year after we returned to the United States and as we were praying about where to serve in Lima, the Lord used Lucho to bring us here to Iglesia Cristiana Koinonia. Lucho and Eddy have become close friends over these last two years and we thank the Lord for yet another blessing.
Eddy goofing around as they prepare to open. If you can't figure out what is going on here then I guess you will have a little homework to do.

The medical team arrives from Lima. They were a team from the United States that came for a week and did two medical clinics. Prior to the one here in Santa Rosa they went to the North and did one there in Trujillo. I have a link to their pictures if anyone is interested I'll forward it along (they have some great pictures).
Our "Luchito" as Eddy calls him.
Entertainment for the little ones as they wait.
I'm sorry that I do not have much more information on some of these pictures but it is very hard for Eddy and I to catch up and sit down together at the same time. So I am filling in the blanks with the information that I do know. For those of you who are following this blog and want to leave comments with more information, please feel free.

Eddy said that this little boy was so shy and that he came in clutching this bunny, I guess it is his pet.

Over the span of two days the doctors saw over 450 patients, wow! What a blessing it was to have them come and minister to the needs of these people, most of which can not afford to see a doctor.
I'm sorry it has taken us so long to finish this update but I hope you enjoy it. Eddy is actually going to continue teaching in this village once a month. Please continue to pray for us to discern His will for us here in Peru.
Another note, we are receiving mail from the USA so if you want to send something small or cards/letters it should arrive in about a weeks time (we have received a few things already). If you need our address just write and we'll send it to you.
