It was not the first time, nor will it be the last that we are thankful for your giving which allowed us to purchase a reliable used 4x4 truck.
Here is a view of our campsite
Yes, we were actually camping at a fish farm, for those who were wondering.
We actually got to catch and eat some of the trout, although it was not very "sporting".
We were thrilled to enjoy God's amazing creation.
In the midst of God's amazing work is the town of Urubamba, where we are currently working and living
These are most of the seminary students, as well as several of the professors. It was quite a hike for those of us past college age (even a little bit past) We are very glad to be investing our lives in training and discipling national leaders who will continue the work even when we are gone.
We brought our puppy with us, and even though he has proved to be quite fearful up to this point he actually barked and "protected" us all night. We think that he was making up for lost time.

It wasn't all fun and games. This was the first of two times that I was stuck by a cactus on our hike up the mountain. The first time I was merely minding my own business when.... well, you know the rest. The second time I was actually diving to save Loren from tumbling down the hill when the second cactus viciously attacked me.
Loren enjoyed showing the seminary girls that American girls play soccer too!

Just a little paint and some furniture (including new termite proof cabinets that we will take with us to the Jungle) and Viola!!
(It makes the glacier water lukewarm or it makes widows)
Our beautiful bedroom. My heavenly Father is so generous. We are definitely blessed! Now for those who were worried about us suffering for Jesus, remember that our heavenly Father knows how to give better gifts than our earthly fathers.

This week was the anniversary of the church where we are serving as short-term replacements in the Sacred Valley of the Incas near Cuzco. We had services every night, and I was the choir director, so it made for an interesting time. Also, on Tuesday we were asked by Loren's pastor to produce a 5-7- minute video for Hillsdale's missions conference—by Friday! Wow, we have been busy! The video is actually posted on our blog:
