"Una Semana Para Nosotras" means "A Week for Us" -- but using the all feminine form for "us." So a week for us ladies!
Today was our last full day serving in Pachacutec with a mission team of ladies from Wisconsin. We put on three days of VBS for kids and 4 days of workshops for women in the community, and we also spent some time visiting homes, painting the church, and working in an orphanage. It was a great week, and we had amazing turn-out for both VBS and the workshops. We were expecting maybe 60-80 kids to show up for VBS, and we think we counted 100 or more every day. For the workshops, we were expecting maybe around 30 women, including the 10 or so that regularly attend the church. We had a total of 59 women attend at least one day of the conference, and somewhere between 30 and 40 women came all four days. Praise the Lord!
Each day, our workshops looked something like this:
We have had the privilege of serving in Peru since 2003. We partner with four different ministries throughout Peru: two in the Lima area, one in the Andes mountains, and one in the Amazon jungle.
