Hello everyone, and Happy belated Mother´s day to all the mothers out there reading! Our team arrived in Lima at about 11PM on Saturday to work with a local church here in Lucyana and set up a clinic for anyone from around the area to come and get medical attention for free. We´re here to heal the sick and spread the Gospel, which is what Jesus came here to do in the first place.

It was a "short" six hours and 13 minutes to get here from Atlanta. Thankfully we had a smooth flight and nice entertainment on the plane. Free movies and games for us all. Way to go Delta, you´ve won our hearts. And props to everyone else on the plane who had to deal with 18 college students in a confined space. The woman next to me was super jumpy! Goodness. She would just about jump out of her seat everytime my elbow slightly brushed up against her or if I started randomly massaging her shoulders. Calm down lady.

We were greeted at the airport by the Lucyana church with a lovely poster saying "Welcome Lipscomb to Peru!". It was nice. We took a bus down to Jacobos´(one of the members) house. That is where the women are staying, while the three manly hombres are staying in a rented house. It would be quite frightening to the average Americano, but not for Michael, Jacob, and me. We got this, ladies.

Sunday was spent setting up the clinic in the church building after service and preparing everything for what´s about to come the next day. We are expecting to meet with and treat about 100 patients tomorrow, whether it be medical or dental needs for children and adults. Lots of work to do that day!

Unfortunately, I have about 3 minutes of internet left at this internet cafe, so that will have to do for now. I´ll keep everyone updated on how the clinics go for the next couple of days. Thanks for reading and have a blessed rest of the week! Keep us in your thoughts and prayers these next two weeks.
