Saturday was perhaps one of the best days of my life.
Our team in Peru began the day by traveling to Hannah’s Home where we finished digging the septic system for their new orphanage.
After the digging was done, we spent time with the children from Hogar De Ninos (another orphanage across the street). It was amazing to watch the guys love on these kids. Jesus and Jesus.
At 2 we took all the children for ice cream. Lots of happy children giggling and then falling asleep in our arms on the bus ride home.
Once back at our hotel, Ola Grande (Big Wave), we prepared for two of our team members to be baptized in the Pacific Ocean. Norm Jackson and Brandon Blood both followed Jesus as their Lord and Savior and were baptized as we did our best to avoid the eight foot waves that were crashing on the beach. Did I mention that the water was freezing?
Oh, and 30 minutes before the baptisms, an earthquake hit–4.0.
We had the full experience in Peru. One of the best days if my life.
I would have to agree with you, that was truly a great day. Thanks for inviting me along on the trip to share the adventure and experience. The time together for the week with all you guys was a great learning experience.
The only thing I haven’t figured out is why all you guys started running when the earthquake hit.
Can anyone tell me where you were going?
