Return to Lima

On Thursday evening, students from Ayacucho, Chanchamayo and Arequipa boarded overnight buses for Lima, and Cusco students caught an early morning flight the next day. By late Friday morning, our unit was back together in Casa Goshen enjoying breakfast, turning in assignments and catching up with their unit mates. The rest of the day was spent repacking, visiting Lima host families and resting at the hostel. In the evening, everyone returned to Casa Goshen for a Thanksgiving meal prepared by Alicia. We felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude for the safe return of every member of our group and for the experiences they have had over the last three months. On Saturday morning, we leave for a three-day retreat where we can relax, spend time with each other, and reflect further on what we have experienced during our time in Perú and what experiences await us back at home in the U.S.
