Jose and I are immensely overjoyed with the connections we have made during our Other Sheep visit to Peru,
and to have especially observed the gay-affirming religious work that is in full operation in Lima by pro-LGBT
clergy and lay-leaders.  

Through public speaking (on three occasions), distribution of the book
The Children Are Free in Spanish
(approximately 110 copies distributed in Lima), general networking, open air “preaching,” casual person-to-
person “witnessing,” and an amazing providential meeting, our days in Peru have literally left us amazed as to
what has been accomplished.

Our time in Peru, as we experienced it, could be divided into three parts:  (1) Our participation in the 5th
Convention of the International Association of Sexually Diversified Families, June 25-June 30, (2) Our inter-action
with pro-LGBT clergy in Lima, June 30 – July 3 and 8 - 9, and (3) Our personal vacation-time in Cusco and Machu
Picchu, July 5 – 8.
