The hospital retreat is an event looked forward to every year by all of us. Last weekend we went to Yucay in the Sacred Valley of Peru. It is a 2 1/2 hour trip from Curahuasi which ends in arguably one of the prettiest parts of Peru. We left the hospital on Friday at 2:30 after rushing through a lightened patient schedule, and then returned on Sunday afternoon. Every year there is a speaker who works to encourage the missionaries in their faith and perseverance. Saturday afternoon is spent playing games, going on hikes, or simply talking. It is a blessing to have this weekend each year to work on our friendships with one another to be refreshed in remembering our purpose.
