Kelsi Brock was a missionary kid in Tacna, Peru for four years. She came back to visit Andahuaylas on a missions trip for six weeks this summer. It was our blessing to host her at our house for part of her trip. Our girls really enjoyed their time with her.

It's exciting to see that the single adults bringing visitors to the activities.
Peru's President Ollanta Humala visited our town of Andahuaylas. We were wondering why there were helicopters flying over our house and around the valley. The President addressed the people on the radio about the needs in the valley. He mentioned that the road to Lima would be completed within a year which will bring in more modern businesses and make it more quickly accessible to travel to the coast.
Our girls were told by their teacher each day to put on their thinking caps. So they made up some thinking caps to put on during school.
It was a blessing to have Chris and Josh come from New Zealand to help with the construction work at the church. Over $5,000 was given by New Zealand churches as well as from these two businessmen. The new church building was able to get closed in with bricking the walls and putting wood walls to the peak of the roof. Outside walls to the church property were able to be painted.
