We have now been in Peru again for almost a week and a half! It has been exciting being back. We have the house all back in order and are trying to get into some type of routine again. All the family seems to be adjusting nicely. Natali and Neomi started their school work again this week (not sure if they were happy about that or not). Rebecca has her kitchen all in order and I am enjoying the home cooked meals! It has been neat for us to see a lot of the changes throughout the city, as well as, a lot of things that have stayed the same. Overall cost of living has risen across the board with groceries, gas and housing having gone up. There is road construction going on throughout the city. Depending on where you turn a road could/could not be closed. We have enjoyed seeing a lot of our old friends at the super markets and markets that we frequent. We also have some modern conveniences like a Maestro Homecenter (like a Lowe’s or Home Depot), which I have already visited 3 times. It is wonderful to be able to go to one store and get everything you need. We also have a Starbucks and a KFC downtown to give us a taste of the U.S., if we are missing it. The city of Cusco seems to be growing and there are a lot more cars on the road. I have noticed that I need not get in a hurry when driving because the roads are more congested. We have been driving around the city and looking for potential places to start a church. Please continue to keep us in your prayers!
