Peruvian Missions Summit

At the end of April we all flew up to Lima to meet up with other missionaries from Peru for a retreat. There were missionaries from Lima, Huancayo, and Cusco in addition to our three families from Arequipa. Gary and Francis Green, who work with Barnabas International, were also at the retreat to lead us in spiritual formation time. It was so neat and refreshing to get to be with the other missionaries that are all in different stages of their time in Peru but who all understand what each other are going through. 

We were able to stay at a retreat center on the beach just south of Lima. The kids loved getting to play on the beach and in the pool and with the other kids. It was a good time of rest and rejuvenation for our family and we felt very encouraged by the other missionaries and the Greens. Here are a few pictures of our time at the retreat.
