This time tomorrow we'll be flying over Arequipa on our way to Lima. In my last post I said I wasn't sad to be leaving, but I think I've changed my mind. Tonight we went to dinner with the family etc- Julio, Miriam, Daniela, Pablo, Diego, Saila, Abuelita, Melissa (cousin), German Miriam, and Joseph. Abuelita came later as a surprise, and for the first 5 minutes she was at the table, I was wiping tears out of my eyes. I know I will miss the light she brings into every room she enters. I realized too how I will miss the others and how I have appreciated the blessing they have been as we learned to live here over the last five months.
We will be in Puerto Supe for a few days without our computers and then back to Lima and blogging on Tuesday. Until then, keep us in your prayers. Transition is not my forte.
