It was an exciting week with the Not Forgotten group from Alabama, the boys each received a new pair of tennis shoes and we went into Iquitos to see one of the first 2010 World Cup games, France-Uruguay. Here are some photos from the week. More can be found at Flickr.

This Friday my next work team arrives in Iquitos/Puerto Alegria. I am particularly excited for this group since they friends and family from my home church in Dearborn. While many are “Peru veterans,” this will be their first time in the jungle at Puerto Alegria and I’m looking forward to showing them the place I have been working.
