One day in August I blew into the tiny town of Llama with a purpose- the exactness of it – not defined for me but that is okay. It’s absolutely the making of a great adventure. And that is definitely how it started off.
After a couple of weeks here I see changes, the progress of God refining, changing, molding the people. They are cracking, changing, breaking, one by one, little by little. Progress…God arrived in this town long before I heard of Llama. Long before He called me into “service.” He planted me here for His reasons. Everywhere, and I mean everywhere I go, every direction I turn, He is already there – preparing the way.
Llama is located in the “Sierras,” mountains of Peru about 2-1/2 hours east of Chiclayo in the northwest. It is a long way from Pucallpa and there are virtually no similarities. Well, except for the poverty. The weather is polar opposite of one another. From the heat and humidity of the Pucallpa jungle to the freezing, biting cold of Llama nights I live in two extremes. Even the food eaten is different. Customs, dialect, method of life – you name it and there is a difference.

And so it goes – when you answer “the call” you just never know where it will take you. What is in store for me, for Trinity’s Angels and for the town of Llama? It doesn’t
matter – I am all in to walk it all out!
