Andes Mountains Peru Tales From the Field

Peru – Part I

The Andes Mountains jut out of the ground straight up into the sky, making one feel small and insignificant. They are so vast it is almost more than the eyes can behold.

Tales From the Field

England

It was 1986 when this team left Colorado for our first international short-term mission trip. We had literally been from coast to coast in the U.S. – east, west and south – on short-term mission trips, but we had not been out of the U.S. together.
