Serving in LimaTambo, Peru!

Our group arrived to Limatambo, Peru yesterday evening after three flights and a 2 hour van ride from Cusco.  We are serving at a place known as Casa del Aguila (House of the Eagle).  The work here consists of 30+ orphans, a private school with over 200 children, and a working produce farm.  The private school, the farm and groups like ours have made this organization almost 100% self sustaining after only 16 years of being in existence. Our team

In addition, our medical team has seen patients

God Only Knows

On the first evening that we arrived in Tamale, our group spent some time organizing the medical inventory.  We sorted bandages, eye glasses, a number of medicines and assorted medical supplies. As I stated in previous posts, I am not a medical professional, so I needed to ask the trip doctors several times, "What is this?"  While each of the team members began to own the organization of certain meds or supplies, I was left to empty bags and make
