Kawsay-Peru

 8 The LORD is the strength of his people,
       a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.

 9 Save your people and bless your inheritance;
       be their shepherd and carry them forever.

Psalm 28:8-9


Cayo showing the team the land they bought (or will buy?) for Kawsay.
(To the stream in background, and about an acre worth)




Martin and his family.  Martin owns 2 pizza restaurants and is part of Kawsay (he is really the one that financially supports most of it).



Pastor Nathan and Cayo "Bama"
(for an Albama hat he acquired from another team member)
Cayo has several degrees, as well as his wife.  His dream is to translate Evangelical Spanish materials into the Quechua language. 




Entrance to Munay Wasi, a compound developed by French Atheists to help teach the locals farming, baking, gardening, as well as a local school. 




Here's the kicker.  Their funding is running out at the end of this month (October) and they are pulling out.  The renters need someone to move in or they lose money.  Our missionary with Impact International is moving up there in December to work with Kawsay to teach and train leaders for local churches.  Cayo "Bama" wants to do translation, and his wife has degrees in Pastry Making and Elementary Education.  The compound has housing development, a bakery, and a school...  You connect the dots and watch God work!
