Finally in Peru!!

I have finally arrived in Peru! I am incredibly excited to be here, in what I feel is my second home! We were a little unsure if we would be able to fly down here from Houston due to the volcano that erupted in Guatemala, because we have to fly right over that country. However, by the grace of God, we only had about a one hour delay with our flight and then we were on our way! Today, we walked around the beautiful city of Lima with Giuli (one of our translators, and our ¨mama¨ for the next month). We went to the Buckner office and had orientation with her, where we planned out what we are going to do with the kiddos at each of the homes/orphanages we are visiting. I am very excited to see what God has in store for us. My team and I have all agreed that we are going to allow God to lead us as we are on this incredible journey that He has laid out for us. The girls in my group are absolutely amazing, and we have already created a strong bond! Please pray that God with give us stregth and guidance throughout this next month as we fufill His work.


  1. God's definitely watching over all of you!! It is such a great comfort for us to know that you are with such wonderful people! Wishing all of you God's grace in all that you strive to do! Tell your "other mama" that I said for her to make sure you eat right & get enough rest! We love you SOOOO much!!!

  2. Yay! So glad you're enjoying your time in Peru & y'all made it there w/o much of a problem! God definitely has place you there for a great reason!! Glad you've got a great team that you've bonded w/ so quickly! Take care of yourself! Love you!!!
