So what did we do yesterday? Yesterday morning was the first morning of this trip that Anderson arrived for us early. We went to the Juvenile Detention Centre and firstly met with the Captain who is in charge of the Jail. She was lovely and explained to us her vision for the place. She has only been in post for about 3 months but wants to pull the staff together and create a more family atmosphere amongst them. Then we went to one of the classrooms and I had a chance to tell both staff and inmates about Jesus and present them with the Gospel. On our way out they took us to one of the cells - words can't describe what we saw.
We made one final trip to Cristo Redentor Church to help the Nursery School celebrate their term closing events. They are now on a 2 week break for their mid winter holidays. This is the equivalent to our Christmas Holidays. After Lunch we visited the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd and prayed for the whole congregation and staff team who meet and worship there. Then Bishop Ken prayed specifically for Anderson. This was a very moving moment. Anderson told me after that Fanta is the only Bishop who has ever prayed for him like that and he can sense the true love of the Lord radiating from us all.
Last night we had a treat. We took Anderson and his family out for a meal. It was buffet style, so gives a chance to try new foods. An interesting experience.
Today the plans are fairly light. This morning we are packing up and getting ready to move on. After Lunch Anderson will pick us up and take us on one final tour of Miraflores and give us a few minutes in the Inka Markets. Then this evening, about 10pm we will be taken to the airport.
Please continue to pray for us, for all the God has shown us that we have shared over the past 10 days, for those we have met and for the Churches we are linked with. Also please pray specifically for our journey this evening and for us as we get our heads around all that we have seen and been involved with.
Muchas Gracias. Dios te Bendiga. (Thank you very much. God Bless you).
