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!
