Neighbors House

I thought this picture might demonstrate how many of the people live.  This is the house of our neighbors.  A couple of women with their kids.  I don’t know where the fathers are.  There is no plumbing.  Those poles out the top indicate that they will have electricity soon, although they do not have it currently.  They live in those rooms with their animals, their kids, and themselves all sharing the same space.

Their kids used to come by our house a lot, but they have stopped.  They were coming by so frequently that we started to have to say no.  We also had a few things disappear from inside that we suspect the kids may have “borrowed”, but we do not know for sure.  They don’t come by anymore.  Sometimes, in my opinion, with the kids you are either completely welcoming them, or they give up on you.  I am not completely sure why they quit coming.  They have the view from below, so maybe that helps them in their poverty to be encouraged?

Do these mountains lift their spirits like they lift ours?  When we see them they point us to the power of God, and they remind us of who we are in relationship to him.  What do those who don't know him think?

  1. So, do Peruvians purchase property like there like we do here in America? A hilltop residence seems wonderful…and the view is awe-inspiring.

    • You can definitely purchase land here, and I agree a hilltop view is awesome. We enjoy our current view very much, and we will be sad to leave it next summer when the Brady family comes back to claim their house. There are some catches to the hilltop property in Curahausi, specifically the lack of connection to the water system, the sewage system, the electrical system, and worst of all for us . . . slow internet. 😉
