Hello, I’m Ashton Corr. I’m in grade 11 and I attend the Glengate Alliance church.
Throughout this trip, I have noticed that joy is very prevalent. Although the Peruvians generally have far less than we do materialistically, they find joy in relationships. Throughout the living styles like the dump, they find true joy through the connections of family and friends. They always seem to find the light in any situation and they are slow to anger. One story that really stuck out to me was where there was a boy living in the dump who had just recently accepted God into his life. He asked to pray within a group of ministry members and said, “Dear God, I pray that you will help the poor.” This boy was eating food from garbage and asked for God to support the poor. This boy had his family and most importantly, the spirit of God. Through these gifts, this boy was far richer than anyone without the blessing of receiving the word of God. All of these scenarios are the largest impacts towards me. These all show how money and materialism aren’t everything. Your life and joy can be satisfied with only the word of God, as God is all mighty and powerful. These are all situations that should impact our lives and make a change on our views of the world. I ask that you support the team and I, by praying for these situations to impact us, and give us a motivation to spread joy back home and glorify God on high. Thank you to all for supporting the team and I, spiritually through prayer, and financially. This mission had impacted my life and I hope it has done the same to the rest.
