The View from the Andes
Thanks to Jill for sharing regarding our ministry
opportunities in Trapiche and Granja Porcon, and indeed that was the purpose of
the trip, but as Narciso said of me more than one, “A esa Hermana Dana le pican
los pies,” which means loosely, I can’t sit still. In fact, I coined a motto
for the trip during a planning e-mail: “We can sleep back in the States.” I
wanted everyone to be prepared for a maxed out schedule – taking advantage of
every waking moment we had.
Whereas there were those dull brushing teeth moments, and we
did need some sleep, this trip did not disappoint. From sharing meals with new
friends, to hitting the road at 4 a.m. with the Walking Man, to seeing, smelling,
sampling and singing, every day was brimming with sensuality in its purest
form. Really, it’s kind of hard to describe… But here’s a short video from days
2 and 3 of the trip to give a glimpse of what I’m talking about.
Enjoy, Donna Lee Schillinger
