That is one BIG pile of luggage!

After spending most of the night packing last-minute things, by 6:30 am on Tuesday, August 6, we were on the road headed to the Indianapolis Airport. Because it was early in the day we did not have to wait in line to check our 18 suitcases.  God gave us cooler than normal weather, so all 18 bags were able to go with us. This was a big blessing and answer to prayer.  Every bit of luggage space, including our 12 carry ons, 1 car seat, and 1 stroller, was needed to help us get started setting up house in Peru.
From Indianapolis we flew to Newark, NJ. During our 45-minute layover we connected with our coworkers, Aaron and Stephanie Cochrell, grabbed lunch at a McDonald's, and boarded our next plane.  By God's grace, we made our connection, all our luggage transferred successfully, and we had an uneventful 8-hour flight to Lima.  
Waiting in line to pass through Immigrations was only a small headache (especially for our 4 tired little ones), and we easily located all of our checked bags from the luggage carousels. Moving our mountain of stuff on 7 wheeled carts through customs was a bit more challenging. We praise God that we made it through the checkpoints without having to pay any fees for the items we brought into Peru. Several of our coworkers met us and helped us get our luggage loaded into a bus. We then drove across Lima to our new home. We finally arrived at our apartment at about 1:30 am, Wednesday morning . . . tired, but thankful with how God clearly guided us through our day of travel.

Getting Settled in Lima

We love our apartment! We will post pictures of it on Facebook and our website soon. We have gotten most of our stuff unpacked and have made several trips to various stores to get household goods and other necessities. It's starting to feel like home.

Joe and Jack started school this past Monday (upper left picture, below) and Isabel starts kindergarten this next Monday. We love the times we have to interact with other North American missionaries (lower left).  Isaac loves going shopping and he enjoys riding on the buses here (upper right--he was showing Ecko how he could hold on to the bars like his dad does). Isabel loves going to Fetzer (the Christian school) and playing with the resident golden retriever, Frodo (bottom right). Yes, those shadows on her cheeks are dirt--this is a desert, you know.

Sending Cards
and Other Items

All funds intended for ministry purposes should be sent to Baptist Mid-Missions. If you have personal gifts, cards, or other items, please inform us before you send them to us. Sending items to Peru can be very expensive and can be difficult for us to receive. We do not want to discourage you from sending us things. We love receiving cards and gifts. We just need to make sure the items get to us in the best manner.

Updated Website

If you have not had the opportunity to check out our website recently, you really should take a look. We have added lots of content and changed the layout. We would love to know what you think!
Thank you praying for us as we get settled. We start language school August 26. We look forward to telling you what happens in Peru.

Until all have heard,
Caleb, Ecko, Joe, Jack, Isabel, and Isaac Stein
