Los Patriotas

A family from our church Iglesia El Puente had the vision to start a Christian school in Cusco. These last few years they have been busy planning and building and it is wonderful to see their dreams come true.

This weekend was the inauguration of the new school, Scott and Anjanette were invited to cut the red ribbon and pray for the school. We are so delighted that our church members are investing in young lives through christian education, Iglesia El Puente is supporting this new project, please join us in praying for this exciting new venture and that many will come to know Christ through the witness of Los Patriotas .

Back in Cusco

Exactly Three months and 10 flights later we were overjoyed to finally arrive back at Cusco Airport .
We have spent a lot of time in airports in Peru, Lima, USA, England and Scotland checking in and collecting bags and it was good to see them all arrive back in Cusco with just a few minor mishaps.

We were a little surprised that nobody from El Puente Iglesia was at the airport to meet us but the real surprise was when we walked into our house to find the entire church was waiting for us. Since Peruvians are not known for their time keeping the party organiser asked them to be there 2 hrs earlier than was actually necessary so some of them had actually been waiting for us for that length of time.

They shouted  "Sorpresa!" and burst a balloon full of paper and Anjanette promptly burst into tears, it was a fabulous but emotional reunion. Soon the whole church was eating and relaxing in our home as usual and it felt as if we had never even been away.

Thank you for praying for us during our home assignment. This time we found it very exhausting and  challenging for various reasons and we appreciated your prayers for us during our time away from Cusco.
