Senior De Los Milagros


Flashback!! We were leaving the Chapel in the background today and there was a procession going by the Church and making a lot of noise with a band and a number of people in purple outfits. This really took me back to my first mission. This is the Catholic "Senior de los Milagros" (Jesus of the miracles) This used to be a big deal. Everyone in this country used to wear purple during the month of Octuber. We will see what Octuber brings.

You can tell that you've been in Peru a long time when you spell the month as "Octuber" (from "octubre"). I love it!

We are eager and excited to join you in Peru. We'll be there in about three weeks!
