The main reason that I was invited to come to Peru for the WGM South America Regional Retreat was to take care of the children while the adults are in their own sessions. I was very honored to have been invited to be a part of the group. It has been like a big family reunion with many of the missionaries I worked with in Bolivia, as well as meeting other missionaries from Peru, Paraguay, and Argentina. I am working with five children, ages 5 to 11. Our focus is on "Finding Jesus", where we are exploring different ocean animals with a different message about going deeper in our faith. So far we have found a dolphin (God wants us to talk to others about Jesus) and a blue whale (God can do big things in our lives). We have a lesson, sing songs, play games, have a snack, and do a craft throughout the day. My prayer is that each child will take something away from the week that will impact them in some way in their relationship with Jesus. I am excited to continue being an ocean explorer with my kids this week!
