The Spring 2013 Study Service Term in Peru finished with a retreat at the Scripture Union Center in Kauai.  Located two hours south of Lima, Kauai is situated on a sandy beach far from the hustle and bustle of the city.  The students presented the research they did while on service, with topics ranging from “Peruvian Forms of Healing” to “Adobe in the Jungle.”  We worshiped together and talked about returning to the US, including the phenomenon of reverse culture shock.  And we enjoyed some recreation on the beach — this is the end of summer in the southern hemisphere and the weather was gorgeous.
