Happy Patriot Days (Felices Fiestas Patrias)

Monday, July 28th will mark the 193rd anniversary of the country of Peru! What a privilege God has given us not only to come from a free country but to also live and serve in a free country. This weekend began what is called “Fiestas Patrias”. The schools and universities take a mid-year break and some people take a short vacation. Recently, two of our young men were back in town taking advantage of the break. One young man was back from Bible Seminary in Arequipa and another one was on leave from the Army. It was great to have them both at church last Sunday. Paul (pictured below), the young man who has been at Seminary, challenged us with a short 5 minute message. It was great to see him put into practice what he is learning at Seminary.

This morning at church we celebrated with a Tres Leches cake and a short video expressing Peru’s culture and heritage. The Lord truly blessed! ¡Viva el Perú!
