A Modern Missions Experience in Latin America

Lima

We have arrived. The flights were non eventful and we made it to our hotel beds around 1am.
Lima is a large city of about 8.5 million. I am thankful Donna is here. She is fluent and experienced in Latin America.
This morning we awoke to the preparations of a parade outside our hotel. Many uniformed policia and business men preparing to march. To my disappointment we missed the procession. But we visited a very nice and modern shopping area in a district called Miraflores. The shops were overwhelmingly American. I think we are saving our tourist dollars for the authentic Inca items.
Next we took a typical double decker tour bus through the city. During the tour we visited cloister San Fransisco, a very ornate church, monastery and catacombs. No pictures were allowed in the catacombs.
We are now waiting for our ride out to Trapiche, a small pueblo (no electricity) and a small congregation.
Gerson (Narcisso’s son) has just arrived. Travel note: they kiss the cheek upon greeting. 🙂
Hasta pronto.
Jill
