People make a difference. We are living here in Curahuasi, and we are definitely strangers. When we arrived we knew no one, but we were hopeful to make friends quickly. We live here in a great mix of cultures, and sometimes finding our way around is a little difficult.
We are thankful for the Hassfeld family for helping us through the transition. Jens and Damaris Hassfeld, missionaries from Germany, have really taken care of us, and they have been persistent in extending friendship toward us. It has been great to learn from them since they have worked at Diospi Suyana since its inauguration in 2007. Jens has been very patient with Will’s stuttering spanish, and Damaris has shown Allison around the town teaching her where she can buy meat, grains, and other necessities. They have helped us know where to go and who to call, have loaned us several of their things and taken us on a couple of sightseeing trips; but on a day to day basis, we just really enjoy their company. Thank you Hassfelds.
