2012 Trip to Nuevo Valentin

On July 3, a group from First (Scots) Presbyterian Church arrived in Iquitos, Peru. Our team of four church members, Jack Callahan, Mikell Thaxton, Lalla Marquez, and Megan McComas was looking forward to working with and building relationships with our sister church in Nuevo Valentin.

Although our main goal was to help the church replace their wood posts with cement columns, we ended up building much deeper and meaningful relationships along the way.

Through conversations with Pastor Clevor, his wife Reina, and church members we learned that the church needed our prayers more than anything else. We discussed the importance of prayer and asked that the church pray for us as well. In addition to these priceless conversations, we held a Bible School and ended the week with the church picnic for the entire village.

We look forward to what God has in store for us when we return to Nuevo Valentin next summer!
