Women's conference 2008 - Cusco Peru

Annual Women's Conference 2008 - Cusco, Peru

Well, it was wonderful! The most common comment about was the impressive amount of servanthood that was displayed by all the members of the church in Cusco. The ladies that attended from Cochabamba were so energized and met many other sisters in Christ from other parts of Latin America as well as the United States. The speakers were outstanding and the food was unforgetable!

The ladies from Cochabamba many of whom were unable to attend because of the dates that overlapped the end of the school year here in Cochabamba worked very hard on making favors for the conference. Here is a picture of the bookmarks! We also had help from Darlene Forbess and Phylis Farlander from the states in making some of the bookmarks. Thanks!

We also had financial help from the states from the Chillicothe Church of Christ in Chillicothe MO and the Hamiliton Church of Christ in Hamiliton MO. Thank you all! The funds that were raised were to go to over 15 ladies but unfortunately as I mentioned before there were only 4 that were able to go. I myself was unable to attend after Trish and I traveled to La Paz because of a lack of correct travel paperwork for Malakai. He is a Bolivian and therefore must have parential permission to travel that is worked out infront of a judge. We didn't what they wanted so we didn't get to go. God is good all the time and the ladies that went had a wonderful time and made relationships that will last an eternity.

We used the funds from the trip to fund Christmas presents for the children of the congregation here in Cochabamba.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this trip possible! To God be the glory!
