I just left a conference for all of the Scripture Union workers in Peru; all of the house parents from the 5 Casa Girasoles, the 17 schools directors from all over the country, and the board of directors were all in one location, at the SU site in Chosica (which is about 1 hour from the downtown Lima offices).
The majority of the morning was spent getting to know the other SU workers, or in my case, catching up with people I haven’t seen since I first arrived down here in Peru. It was amazing to see people that live so far away (from me in Peru) that I didn’t think I was ever going to see again.
The best surprise was to see an old friend, Kevin Saldaña, who I met in 2002 and haven’t seen for at least 5 years!
Spending the day at the retreat was the best way to end my summer as an SU intern.
