A Little Bit of Everything

This past week we have been doing a little bit of everything. One of the primary things that the Lord showed us to do upon our return was to just meet with the people and reconnect so we have been doing so in various forms. We've had the chance to reunion with most of those whom we were discipling during our first mission here and likewise the opportunity to meet new friends as well.

Marisol and Josiah having a bit of fun in the kids "casita."
If you will remember, Marisol is the young lady who was helping us out around the house during our last mission trip, she has become a close friend of ours as well as the children.

Kike joined us one afternoon for one of my first Peruvian dishes, green spaghetti.

The Lord has brought many new people into our lives in such a short period of time. One of them is a couple named Jose and Lisa whom I met on a forum for expatriates living in Peru. They invited us to their house for Thanksgiving dinner were we met a handful of other missionaries who serve with Wycliffe, a bible translating ministry. It was a wonderful time of fellowship and a testimony of just how God provides for each detail of our lives. We had not made any plans for Thanksgiving and although we had not specifically prayed  for an invitation, the Lord knew our hearts and provided us with one.

It was a wonderful meal, not to mention delicious!
Such care was taken in the setting of the table.
A special verse was chosen for each of us.

Yes, this picture was taken on Thanksgiving Day, we praise God for the warmer weather.

On Saturday mornings there is an organic "fair" by a very nice park that we like to visit. Yesterday morning we took the kids for an hour or so. Here they are in the small library watching a pupet show.

After the library they had a chance to run.

Our time spent at Iglesia Cristiana Koinonia has been a blessed one for us. The fellowship within the body is wonderful and we stand in awe with them as we watch the Lord doing marvellous things there. Each Sunday we have been there has been a full day of worship and fellowship. Every other Sunday they prepare a menú in the church. A menú is meal served complete with appetizer and beverage for a small price, they use the proceeds toward missions work. Even on the off Sunday's the people still congregate until very late in the afternoon.

La familia Koinonia... or a part of it anyways.
