Day Three with team EPIC

We can't even begin to express what a blessing EPIC has been to us so far.  There encouragement and selflessness has been nothing less than amazing.  The first day they showed up they got busy.  Keep in mind, they had not slept or rested.  They had just flown from LA to Lima into Cajamarca and then that afternoon performed an amazing kids festival.  They pushed through and blessed the community.  We lost count of the kids, but it is safe to say we were in the 150 range not to mention all the parents that showed up and stayed through the whole festival.

Sunday morning a few of the youth lead worship and Dave preached a powerful message.  After service they all came over to our house to celebrate Arianna's first birthday.

Today they are heading out to Perquria, which is an animal market that is quit the experience.  They will be doing some evangelical skits, worship, evangelism and some open air preaching.  In the afternoon they will head into the Plaza in Cajamarca and do some sight seeing and some more evangelism and souvenir shopping.

Please continue to be praying for this team and all they come in contact with.

EPIC youth group trip fast approaching

It has been a couple crazy busy weeks preparing for the Epic youth group from CC Sonora.  We are so very excited to have them coming to Peru to serve with us and bless the people of Cajamarca.  They will arrive this saturday and hit the ground running with a Fesitval de NiƱos.  From there we just keep on the move.  They will be here a full 9 days pouring out.  We are praying that the Lord touches the lives of all they come into contact with, but we are also praying for them.  We want the Lord to do a work in each and every one of them so that they are never the same.  We want them to be fired up for Jesus.  When they go back home they make an impact in there circles.  To see a group of kids willing to leave the comforts of home and come to Peru (even if it is for a short time) it blesses our hearts and encourages us.  Be praying for them and their dedicated leadership.  We will post an update once they are on their way home.
