so we went and bought a drum set ...

Julio gives the new drumset a trial run in what used to be the kitchen1 Nov, Wed - Give me a minute, it's still a blur ... what did we do this day .... Finally bought some oil to use the primary part of the sachi-popa cooking station we bought for the mission.  Prior to this we have only used the grill, now we will use the deep fryers for chicken and potatoes.  

Made the investment to purchase the 'battery', what you call drums in spanish.  

2 Nov, Thurs - Much decorating of the main meeting area for the coming holiday season.  Also retrofitting the original kitchen to be an extension of the main meeting room, intended for 'musician' use (drums, keyboard, etc).   

North American missionaries arriveAltura bible study with visiting missionaries3 Nov, Fri - Arrival of our San Diego and Mexico team.   8 people dropped to 7 due to last minute emergencies put on our San Diego pastor. Of the 7 visitors, 5 were from San Diego (Ron Nielson, Hank Sybrandry, Richard Lamb, Johnny Cena & Doug Sholder), and 2 from Mexico (Tanto Hussein & Pedro).   Hank, Richard and Doug represent Missions from Branch Church, Ron Neilson represented Horizon Church and is a close associate with Tanto.  Tanto and Pedro represent Mas Vida Bible school in Mexico which is where our resident missionaries are students of.

great Peruvian fast food 1 Oct - Sunday - Last day before we head north to Lima for a week.   no construction today but made a small supply run into Ica to get some electrical and audio wiring items.  We had a major issue with our main breaker last night and had to get a new one.  Was keeping any showering from happening so I got a hot water from the stove shower ... thank you Lily.   But fixed the breaker as well as our emergency light whose battery died.  Picked up 130 meters of audio cable as well so I can start pulling that when I get back ... projecto, projecto, projecto ...  Did get a great Peruvian meal at Totos, where we bought a few groceries.  A ham&cheese lasagna dish with my favorite ricoto relleno stuffed pepper!!   Mmmm   

Youth center in use before worship and church services OK, back to the mission.  Did a few needed repairs quickly.  Put a replacement battery in the emergency light and replaced the primary breaker in the mission.   Will have to save the rest of my chores for another day, probably another week since we leave tomorrow
