Ready for the New School Year

Tyler and Colin worked on getting SAM Academy ready for the new school year. They put up super board in the elementary classroom, did some electrical work in the high school room and hung up the ceiling fans.

Our Summer Guests

This summer we had visits from two special people, Tyler's mom (Grandma) and Colin Campbell a good friend form our home church in Cambridge. We enjoyed our visit with each of them.  We were able to visit Yarina Cocha and tour the lake in a Peke Peke boat. We went to the local zoo, went deep into a small stream to see amazing birds and also to the Boqueron with Colin.

I decided to post black and white pictures for fun.

Tournavista Road Trip

Yesterday, Tyler, Myah and I went on a little road trip to Tournavista. It is the town where SAM Air started their ministry back it the 1960's. A few weeks ago SAM Air celebrated their 50th anniversary of  ministry in Peru. It was a wonderful time to reflect on God's faithfulness and how He has used this ministry to further His Kingdom.

Tournavista is about two hours from where we live. It is also the original location of SAM Academy (our daughters school). The drive was beautiful. We passed through several tiny towns with just a homes in sight. But, there were many cattle farms that we passed surrounded by jungle trees. Hannah would have loved all of the horses we saw, as they are one of her favourite animals.

We took just a few pictures to share with you.

pretty small and some of them only a few boards laid over a stream.
