You are probably feeling very confused right now. Here's the scoop. You find a rock (the bigger the better) and you push it.......and it rolls down the mountain and into the valley below... I know this doesnt sound too exciting, but the satisfaction you get from seeing that rock tumble down the mountainside is just great.
So, as you could have guessed, we climbed a mountain this week. Leo and Rachel were the only ones brave enough to come with us on our trek to the the highest peak in Manchay. It was really fun! Unfortunately, it was extremely foggy, and we couldnlt see anything below, but we made it to the top and thats all that matters. 1 Hour and 15 minutes (Eat that Javier!)
So work at the Cuna has been great. The Canadian work team left, so its only Eduardo, Tyler, Dave and us working on the cement. It looks like we'll finish up the cement columns before we go. Its a lot slower work without the 5 Canadian guys helping out. The whole team was really fun, and they will be missed.
So thanks for praying, guys.....We're still alive after jumping off the cliffs at Midaflores to go Parasailing. (In case you dont know what parasailing is, basically you strap a parachute to yourself and jump off a cliff. You fly around for a while and its really fun!) Definitely a great experience.
This Saturday, we got to tag along on a camping trip with the older boys from the home. Patty set the whole thing up. She was a missionary here for about 20 years and is now back visiting for a month. It was really cool to hang out with the boys on the beach. We had some great times playing soccer and hunting crabs (with sticks and fire)..... we probably should have hunted dogs to try to keep the population down, but whatever.
So our time here in Peru is coming to an end. We were under the false impression that we were leaving on Wednesday night (because someone cant read). It was like Christmas come early to find out that we're actually leaving Thursday night and will be back in the states on the 27th. Wahoo! one more day and we didn't even have to change our ticket!
So we hope all is well back in the States! Thanks for praying! This will probably be our last Peruvian blog (unless there is a sudden burst of creative ingenuity that needs an outlet), so thanks for faithfully reading this blog!

P.S. Hey, does anyone know if we're doing a presentation about the trip this Sunday? We're sort of in the dark on this issue. We've heard some rumors buzzing around, but no solid information has crossed our desk.
- Safe trip home.
- Health (we both have colds, no biggie, but kinda annoying)
- Permit issues for the new home property at Pachacamac
