Peru's Independence Day is July 28 and all the schools here get an automatic 2 weeks off of school. I didn't know this until a few weeks ago but when I found out I thought I would take advantage and make a trip to Trujillo to be with my team. I then found out my church in Greenville, SC would be coming to Trujillo the week after my vacation ended so I worked it out with my school to stay a week longer in Trujillo and stay a week longer in Arequipa in September.
My first week in Trujillo was an awesome week but a whirlwind of activity! I got the privilege of working the whole week with a medical team from Trinity Pres in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We had 4 days of clinics in different neighborhoods that have limited to no medical care. There were 4 doctors,1 peruvian nurse from our clinic here, me, and the rest of the team who handled the waiting kids, pharmacy, and organization of people.

This week is half work/ half play. I took over the lease of an apartment the girl interns used to live in here in Trujillo. It has been vacant for a month or 2 and has gather some dust so I'm working on cleaning it up some this week. I also am doing some normal everyday stuff this week too like paying bills, team meetings, doing my homework for school, and catching up on blogging. I am also getting to spend one on one time with fellow missionary families and friends here in Trujillo.
So thankful that God know's exactly what I need (like a vacation to rejuvenate me to finish school) even when I didn't know!
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
