Last week Wes and I, along with Whitney Ueltchey, attended a social event here in Trujillo. Our friend Edith Cordova had a very nice open house for her new hair salon and spa. It was complete with champagne, tasty finger foods served by men in white coats with black bow ties, lights, and music. Edith is very well known here and has won many awards in Lima for her work. We met her through classes she took in SALI, our language institute. We are so thankful for the friends the Lord has put in our lives!

Wanted to share a few of the pictures Abby has recently taken of her sisters. We have just discovered a natural talent. She really does a great job! She has started taking pictures of everything and is now our official family photographer.

I went with Wes last week out to the Wichanzao clinic. It has been a while since my last visit, and there have been a lot of changes. The second floor is now complete and houses the dental office, exam room, lab, and the new ultrasound room. The clinic has recently purchased a brand new state-of-the-art ultrasound machine, thanks to the generous gifts of many friends! We have two Peruvian doctors who have been trained to perform this task.

This week is the beginning of our busiest time of the year. Our short term mission teams will fill up the next few months. Our first team was a group of dentist and dental students from UMC in Jackson, Mississippi. They saw many patients in the outlying parts of the city. These dentists not only pulled and cleaned teeth, but also demonstrated the love of Christ! Thank you all for giving up your time to help with the work here in Trujillo!

Our youngest angel Millie at her school program! All the kids have been back in school for 6 weeks now. We are getting into the groove of things. This is our second year in Peruvian schools and I think we are finally figuring out the system. All of the kids are doing well and have many friends!
