Greetings from the mountain city of Caraz. It is a quaint little town with lots of mountain women in their typical dress, beautiful I might add. This valley city is surrounded by mountains, some snow capped.

We arrived on Monday afternoon after a bumpy and hot trip. Lots of pretty things to see along the way, waterfalls, etc.

Monday night David preached, Tuesday through Friday nights he preached on the family. Each afternoon we have a Vacation Bible School with a fairly good attendance. It is great serving together as a family. Benjamin is leading the singing with the children´s program, Rebekah helps out with the babies that come or anywhere else she is needed. Abigail and Jacob are students and help out where they can also. Everyone helps get supper on the table and clean up.

We will return to Trujillo on Monday next week and then back to the usual daily routine and also packing our belongings to store for furlough.

Tomorrow we will head farther up the mountains to the town of Cajapampa which is at the foot of the famous Huascaran mountain. Some of the braver or crazier people will take a 4 hour hike up the mountain so they can touch the snow. I am not one of those people. Most of the roads in this town are uphill and that is enough to wind me in this altitude. David may preach up there tomorrow night, we aren´t sure of that yet.

We are enjoying our break from the normal routine and being together as a family. We did bring school along so we have been doing that each morning. Aunt Martha is here too so she also continued school with Abi and Jacob. When we arrive home I will post some pictures.
