Family day out on Good Friday
As well as our special Easter church activities and chocolate, Jess and Sam are excited that Easter means 2 days off school (Thurs and Friday are public holidays in Peru.)
Samuel is currently singing "Ya llego la Pascua fa la la la la la la la la !"
We have Easter events at church on Thursday (communion) Saturday (showing the film the Passion of the Christ) and Sunday (Easter celebration service and egg hunt!)
However as a church we do not have a special Good Friday celebration, for many Peruvians it is a family day when they eat 12 dishes consisting of fish and shellfish as they fast from meat .
Well we did not stay home and eat 12 dishes but had a lovely relaxing family day we drove out to the sacred valley and spent some time in Urubamba visiting our colleagues James and Julia in their new home. Driving and walking in the valley you can not help but be amazed by God's wonderful creation.These photos give an idea of how beautiful the green countryside and cloudy blue sky was.
