Hello! I (Patrick) came to Jesus in Houston in 1982. During the same month in Vancouver, BC, the Lord called and sent Debbie as a single missionar...
Highlights from Peru this month included shifting into my new (very good) role as e3 Partners Global Mentor Coach, with time in Tacna, Arequipa, Puno, Sicuani and Cuzco. In each location we had training opportunities, but also eyeball to eyeball time with area church planters. Sicuani was an area where Debbie had participated with jump-starting a new church plant two years ago. That church is thriving! Arequipa town allowed us to be in two new church plants, as did Tacna town (one church). We also trained in Cuzco.
Time with traveling colleague (and new missionary to the jungle of Peru) Casey Laws was a thrill as we deepened our relationship one with another. This was my fifth extended time with Casey and so I tried to share with him -- as best possible -- things I have learnt through the years about the missionary trail. Casey is a godly fellow and we both learnt from each other. He is a thrill!
While in Peru, we purposely took “30 hours off” as an attempt to have a personal retreat of sorts in an indigenous (truly!) village and island of Isla de Tequila. What a thrill!

It is good to be safely home! Thank you for being in our lives!
