    Eye opening and surprising

    March 14, 2018 Meredith Clow

    Hey, it’s Meredith. This trip thus far has been incredible in so many ways. I have had so many different emotions and I felt God in ways I didn’t even know was possible. First of all, the food here is absolutely amazing. Hey mom, it turns out I actually like rice! The food isn’t the only thing that is amazing here in Peru; the people are also. They are some of the most amazing and inspiring people I have ever met. The people that run Inca Link and the other ministries here are so kind and full of God’s love. Yesterday we went to a village where peoples’ homes were destroyed by the recent flooding, and it was crazy to see how these people had to live. Every family had a little make shift hut that usually had to fit a family of 5-7, these huts had dirt floors and little to no furniture. We were handing out bags of fruit to these families and it was crazy to see how much a little bag of fruit means to them. While we were there, a Peruvian lady waved me over and she started talking to me in Spanish. Unfortunately, I could really only make out one word at the end of her sentence, “Gracias”. Even though I didn’t understand all of what she said, my basic Dora vocab led me to understand that she was thankful to have us there. All in all, this week has been an incredible one and I am so excited to see what God has in store for us these last few days. Hasta Luego!

    Love hearing some of your thoughts and experiences, Meredith! The faithfulness of all those who are a part of the Inca Link ministries was one of the most impactful things to me as well. What an inspiration and an example of how I should be serving God too! It is such a joy to serve him, so thank you for reminding me of that lesson that I learned 2 years ago and am still continuing to learn now!! Enjoy the final days of your trip!

    LOL! I love that you discovered some "new" foods on your trip. I hope Mac did too. More importantly I am so excited to hear that God is showing you his love and kindness through the believers there.

    Meredith,

    your "my basic Dora vocab" comment made me laugh out loud. We are so grateful for the experiences God is giving you and also for your willingness to share them with us. I pray that your last few days will cement all that God has worked in your life so far. We anticipate your return and hearing more of what God has done among you.

    Jude
