o how glorious is food! I LOVE food...and I not afraid to eat my weight in a delicious hamburguesa sanguchada (a glorified hamburger).  One hamburger patty, one chorizo patty, a fried egg, cheese, french fries, lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, ketchup, olive sauce, aji sauce (a peruvian pepper sauce..spicy!), and about 5 other sauces that I was not able to identify.  This is what my dinner consisted of along with an ice cold Pepsi Cola.  Like i said......GLORY!

a friend

Savi needs a friend...all day long he plays, for the most part contently, and I play too, but I feel inadequate.  He needs a little friend that he can grow alongside.  That is one thing that is hard about being here, there are no ninos for him to play with.  I get sad sometimes when I see him running around in patterns that I know only a one year old would understand.  I think to myself, "I wonder if he is lonely?"  But the Lord knows and he will bring a little playmate for him in His perfect timing.  Maybe we will meet a cute little Peruvian mamasita and he can play with her?! I am beginning to see the little difficulties that come along with moving here and at the same time I am so blessed to be a part of this little community.  I am just continually praying that the Lord makes our time here a sweet one, no matter how long or short.
On a funnier note...Savi learned about iPods and headphones these past couple days and now he is hooked!

butter and converse

I just have to say it...the butter here is amazing and I think that the world should know. It is glorious...o so glorious!  I also just wanted everyone to see how cute my sons high tops are...they are well loved and at the end of the day they just make me smile sitting there on the counter.  I love being a mom!

sauvignon jacob

O how I love our son.  Lately he has been quite a handful with the move to Peru and with four molars moving into his mouth, yet my love for him continues to grow each and every day.  When I found out that I was pregnant I never imagined how much the Lord would teach me through this flaming bundle of energy.  Each day as I see him grow and learn and just become a little person, my love for him deepens (especially now that i get kisses and hugs!).  I can't even begin to imagine how God sacrificed His only son for me, a sinner.  it just blows my mind.  I guess what I am trying to say is that the Lord has really been showing me how much He loves me lately.  Jesus loves us all!

We journeyed out of "gringolandia" on Friday and went to Miraflores, an area of Lima.  We were told that it was about a 40 minute walk but it ended up taking us about an hour and a half because we decided to walk along the beach which was quite nice.  Our new friend Gino took us.  Gino is a really nice guy, he handcrafts custom items out of wood and he is waiting on the Lord to show him where to step into ministry.  Miraflores is a mix between  New York and any other South American Metropolis.  It was beautiful...we had some chifles, fried plantain chips, along the way and we found a really neat coffee shop.  As we were driving back to the house in our taxi we notices that there is a flea market every so often.  We will definitely be hitting that up.  Flea markets remind me of Noelle and Jo in Jersey.  Slowly we are getting to explore the beautiful area around us.

Booger Fruit

The actual name being Granadilla, the booger fruit is indigenous to Peru.  Crunchy little seeds encased in a strange sack of green, well greenness.  It was tasty though.


simply to keep you all informed.
