Ever since we’ve arrived in South America, we’ve dreamed about some day visiting the great Incan Ruins of Machu Pichu. We are attending a conference for missionaries in Arequipa, Peru next week. We'll have the opportunity to share about what God is doing in Paraguay . Since, Machu Pichu, one of the recently named seven wonders of the world, is only a day’s drive away, we thought we’d take advantage of this limited opportunity and spend Easter weekend hiking the Sacred Valley.
So, we’ll be taking off on Thursday for our 4 day road trip to Arequipa and eventually, Machu Pichu. Due to our fear of contracting sedentaritis, an unfortunate disorder linked to couches and remote controls, we simply thrive on these types of expeditions. However, we know that there are risks involved and we are asking you to pray for our safety on the road, for our old, but reliable “Blue Cruiser”, for Timmy and for our health. We'll be traveling for a total of 2 weeks.
We'll try and post frequently with pics from the Paraguayan desert, Bolivia, Lake Titicaca (the highest navigable lake in the world) and Peru. Yahoo, we definitely love road trips!
