From the amazon jungle to the concrete jungle, we are all super excited about being back in civilization. Puerto Maldonado is a unique city and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to get some yummy snacks, ride motor bikes and tuktuks, exploring all the new things, places and the culture.
Another thing we have learned and are still learning is to be led by the Holy Spirit. It was encouraging to see what an impact that can have in the lives of others. I can definitely say that everyone on this team stepped up this week.
We’ve been realizing just how hard it is sometimes to communicate with the language barrier, but we are slowly getting better: we are now able to have little conversations or at least make known what we want. However we have found ways to communicate the gospel and our stories through our translators and with just the few words we do know.
We’ve had a great time so far and soon our journey points us upwards to the big mountains of the Andes where we’ll be for the next couple weeks. So excited to see what God has for us there!
