…that I’ve traveled to Peru four times and to the Dominican Republic twice.
That’s me in the upper right-hand corner with the blond hair, circa 1998.
It’s not something I’ve had the opportunity to talk about often, but those six trips between 7th grade and my freshman year of college had a profound impact on who I am today.
During these short-term mission trips with our church, we partnered with local churches to serve the community in a variety of ways, including dental clinics, vacation Bible school, church building, volunteering at an orphanage and more.
I met, and fell in love with, hundreds of children throughout Peru and in a shanty town in the Dominican Republic called Santana.
- hiked to the top of Machu Pichu
- drank coca tea for altitude sickness
- discovered the most amazing ice cream shop in Lima, Peru
- tasted fried guinea pig
- had my first taste of ceviche
- performed various skits for churches and in city squares
- built relationships with the locals that lasted from one year to the next
- opened dozens of cards from my mom (one for each day I was gone, and each one ending with “Don’t drink the water!”)
- and more.
