We've been in over 20 churches and have traveled over 8,000 miles in our rented van while reporting what God has done in Peru. It's been interesting to see the wide variety of services in our travels from Cowboy roundup, VBS, Camps, Missionary Conferences, Fellowships, and from small groups to large congregations. Each have been such a blessing to us.

Another day at the National Mall in Washington DC
Pictures taken of the White House.
Jon returns from Peru with 30,000 pictures and needs to narrow it down into a 7-10 minute presentation for the churches. As he makes a script to show the different phases of our ministry of Peru from our first year at EFATA Baptist, to assisting in the planting of a church in Andahuaylas, to furlough, and finally to the future plans with working with Horeb Baptist and Independent Baptist to start another church. The pictures were chosen and arranged for a slideshow as Jon narrated for our first few churches. We were thankful for the church in Indiana to record and burn a DVD copy for us to use. We were later able to make duplicate copies with a DVD burner and Label printer at a host house in Maryland. This allowed us to mail them out to those churches interested in our ministry and those whom we are not able to report to in person. We are thankful for all those who had a hand in helping us put this together for furlough.
While reporting to our churches in the East Coast, we were able to take a few trips to the National Mall in Washington D.C. area. The tour of the U.S. Capital, Monuments of Washington-Lincoln-Jefferson, the White House, Air and Space Museum, War memorials, Arlington cemetary, and more. It was good to spend some time enjoying the area of Washington D.C.

A special thanks goes to the Boelk Family and to Fairfax Baptist Temple for their hospitality. We enjoyed the Revival services with Tom Farrell and the great fellowship. Visiting with the son of missionary Paul Rose from Peru, Tim Haskell, Miss Joanne, and others from Fairfax Baptist Temple.
We were able to visit the National Mall in Washington DC. This trip allowed us a tour into the US Capital building and a visit to the Air and Space Museum. We also took the time to visit Arlington Cemetary and the tomb of the unknown soldier.
