Blog Post from Cusco Veritas student

Written by Audrey Beathard

"I loved the ministry that I got to be apart of here. I taught English classes at the church two times a week with a full-time missionary and then I went to Sion which is an after-school program for the kids in this impoverished area every Friday.I feel greatly impacted by my time here. I think that this was an amazing experience that God allowed me to have and I am so grateful for the experiences I’ve had here. My Missions Mentor, Giovanni, was amazing to me and to all of us on the program. She not only gave us an opportunity to get involved with the church that her husband is a pastor at but she was also caring and loving to us and always pouring into us."
