Peru Mission Trip-Day 6

August 8, 2006 at 12:35 am (Faith, Missions, My ramblings, Peru)




Wheelchair Distribution in Carabayllo
This was another area hit hard by poverty. They had no running water and as you can see in the pictures, nothing green grows here. A water truck comes by every day and the people take whatever containers they have and fill them up with the water. The picture with the houses are what they all looked like. Some of the walls were made of what looked like palm branches woven together. It was amazing to see the size if them as well.
A mission team from Healing Place Church was there and we got to minister with them.
We handed out several wheelchairs and had the opportunity to share God’s love with them and also prayed with and loved on the people who got them. We had so much fun playing with the children here that day. We danced, we sang, we hugged and loved them and I was struck by how freely these children, who appear to have nothing, loved us.

    I came across your blog through the CWO random blog ring. It was cool to see my church on your links, HealingPlaceChurch, and then to see you went to Peru. I enjoyed your Peruvian pictures. My husband and I are parents to eight beautiful children and five of them were adopted from Peru. Peru is in our hearts and seeing your pictures really blessed me!
