We made it back to Cusco on Wednesday the 1st of February! Our flight left Cincinnati at 11:20 a.m. on the 31st of January. It was hard saying “good-bye” after 13 months in the U.S. and it was especially hard on Natali and Neomi. After about an hour or so they cheered up.
We praise the Lord we made it to Lima (eventually Cusco) with all 10 of our bags. It was a long night in the Lima airport. Natali and Neomi hardly slept and Becca and I took turns watching all the bags, so we didn’t sleep either. Both girls got sick from the long night and no sleep, but they are both doing better now. Since we’ve been back it’s been a whirlwind of activity trying to get things back in order. We have all our bags unpacked and now we are trying to get the rest of the house unpacked. We have internet and telephone again so that makes us feel more in touch with our families. We have also been able to see many of our friends both missionaries and Peruvians – that has really helped. What a difference it was coming back to Peru this time from almost 7 years ago. We already know Spanish, we know the culture, we already have a furnished house, and we have many friends. Pray for us as we seek out God’s will for a new church plant!
