Off to Peru...

On Tuesday evening, Danny Canaviri and I will be taking a bus to La Paz, Bolivia's capital. From there, we will take another bus to the border with Peru and after crossing the border, we'll catch another bus to Cuzco. We hope to arrive in Cuzco sometime on New Year's day.

On Saturday, Jan 3, we will join a tour group and hike the Inca Trail. The four-day trek includes stops at several Inca ruins and ends at the well-known Inca site, Machu Picchu. We'll then stay there for a day and head back to Cuzco for our trip back to Santa Cruz. If all goes as planned, we'll be back home between Jan 8 and 10.

I'm praying this will be a great time away to get rested up for the next semester of ministry. I'm hoping it's also a great opportunity to hang out with Danny and also visit our missionaries in Peru as well as visit some amazing historic places. Please pray with me that we will have protection, fun and maybe even some rest!


School starts back up on the 12th along with all of the normal youth ministry activities. In addition to the weekly events, I will be facilitating a class on EVERY YOUNG MAN, GOD'S MAN for the 11th and 12th grade boys. This will be a three-week, daily "class" for discussion and study. Please pray with me that each of the students will be involved, attentive and ready to allow God to work in their lives.

Immediately following this class will be our junior high camp, Feb 4-6, followed by high school camp, Feb 9-13. Pray with me that things will fall in to place and preparations will come together. Pray also that the students will be ready for what the Lord has in store for each of them spiritually.
