After a peaceful night in our sponge beds, we woke around 8 this morning, had a hot shower, and enjoyed a continental breakfast. Afterwards, we enjoyed the morning breeze on our hotel’s patio as we waited for our ride to the airport.
Since our flight to Cochabamba wasn’t until 2pm, we had plenty of time to fellowship together upon arriving at the Santa Cruz airport at 10am. We spent some time on the airport observation deck, watching some arrivals and departures before retreating the air-conditioned terminal for a coffee break.
The flight from Santa Cruz to Cochabamba took us between mountain peeks that were at-altitude with the plane. The incredibly scenic 45-minute flight was disturbed by some turbulence, but we landed with no issue. We were out of Cochabamba airport fairly quickly, and arrived at House of Hope around 3pm.
We were greeted warmly by the local directors, Carmen and Richard, who run the day-to-day operations and ministries at House of Hope. We settled in with some scenic views and delicious local coffee as we acclimated to the thin air.
The House of Hope very quickly displayed its gift of hospitality. Carmen and Richard and their family are all incredibly friendly, and the house was beautiful, inside and out. After a restful afternoon, we made our way to a local restaurant to enjoy a filling meal while we became better acquainted with our new friends. We finished the night in planning and prayer for the remainder of our week.
Thank you for your continued support of our ministry, and for your prayer. If you will continue to pray for our energy, and pray for endurance through the busyness of the week.
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills.
From where does my help come?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.
– Psalm 121:1, 2
