Another great team!  We were able to visit in the Antapampa area and publicize the field day/picnic.  We loaded up 42 people on the 24 passenger bus and took them into Concepcion to an amusement park for the day.
What an experience and blessing it was to see the excitement on their faces as some left the village of Huachac for the very first time.  The kids of this very poor area enjoyed a day of amusement rides, fun houses, bounce houses, swan paddle boats and 4-wheelers.  The day ended with the bus running out of gas, and giving us the unexpected opportunity to share in a confined bus , Bible stories, testimonies and sing-a-longs.  The youth camp held at Manzanares was a great success. Partnering with the Christian Alliance Church in Huancayo, providing leaders for the Bible Studies and music was a huge blessing.  They completely understood the Word. We had a great time with games, skits, testimonies, Bible Studies, music, lunch,  worskshops, on puppets, crafts, and balloons, and lots of fellowship.  They were asked in the Bible Study "How do we talk to God?"  they answered, " With our prayers". "Asked how do we We had the opportunity to worship in three different churches on Sunday and had communion at two of those.  We met with the knitting group and are really excited about their growth and them representing the district in many festivals and events throughout the area.
