We spent our last weekend in Peru on the beach at the Union Biblica retreat center, about an hour and a half south of Lima. It was a beautiful place to reflect on the past three months and to prepare for our homecoming.
We were delighted to have the group together once again after spending six weeks apart during service. The SSTers shared many stories about their experiences in the selva, sierra, and costa (jungle, mountains, and coast). We heard lots of laughter during our time together and sensed the deep affection and appreciation the students developed for for this remarkable country.
