Machu Picchu

This past week Tyler and I were invited to go to Cuzco and Machu Picchu with one of our visiting teams. We arrived in Cuzco on our anniversary early in the morning, but I was very quickly hit with altitude sickness and spent the day in bed. I tried to go on the tour of Cuzco but returned after our first stop realizing I wasn't going to make it. I began praying that God would give me the strength and health I would need to visit Machu Picchu the next day, and he did.

Machu Picchu was beautiful and it was very evident that the Incan people were masters of their work. But, more beautiful and mesmerizing were the mountains that surrounded it. Steep mountains cover in jungle green, knowing that our God made them and that not one inch of it is hidden from his sight.

I don't think that I will ever be able to go back there again, as it has taken me two days since returning form Cuzco to get over my altitude sickness, but I hope that one day Tyler will be able to take our girls with him.  It was great to see yet another part of Peru and be reminded of how diverse God made the landscape in this country.
