The team is home!
They made it back on Tuesday around 2:00 pm (Utah Members)
The past few days have been very busy, but so much fun. Wednesday we had some great sessions and we played soccer. We decided to take it easy on them... they beat us twice. In our defense the games were very close. I'm not sure if they enjoyed playing soccer or watching us play soccer more. They found us very comical. After the game we bought Inca Cola (a kind of soda) for everyone.
Yesterday was packed with sessions. Mike spoke on sermon preparation. Chris spoke on pastoral counseling. Dave N. Spoke on the Holy Spirit and we had a question and answer session in the evening. Our brains were pretty fried...so of course we had to cool them down with a little ice cream last night.
Today we will be finishing up with some leadership lessions and then we'll have a graduation ceremony where we'll give out the resource books.
We have received some great feed back from this conference. Several have said that the information they're receiving is very helpful. Others told us that some of the things we taught them they had never heard before. They seem incredibly eager to learn. We've been blessed by their desire to grow and learn. The conference was a complete success to the Glory of God.
Thanks so much for your prayers! Please continue to pray as we prepare for the Sunday services. Also keep Mike in your prayers, his back is very sore from the soccer game. Chris's knee is a bit sore as well. Rod also needs prayer as he recovers from sickness.
God has given us some amazing opportunities to serve! And we serve an amazing God!
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you, Chris, for the Peru team.
