I have a lasting impression of strength of spirit and determination. In a place of sand and few material resources, these Peruvian families are working together in the barrios to improve their lives and those of their children. As mothers, and even a teenage boy, told stories from the Bible and asked questions, I saw eyes dancing with enthusiasm and heard voices lager to respond.
As we worked and played with children we gave and received love in spite of our poor Spanish. I’ll never forget the greetings and partings of a hug and a cheek kiss in the air.
