Foreign travel and the lack of routine have prevented me from keeping up in this venue on a regular basis. Father Evans and I arrived in Lima early Monday morning on a redeye flight and, mercifully we're given the rest of the day to rest. It is, of course, summertime in South America, and the weather in labor is unusually warm and humid. Yesterday, we met a priest and three Lake people from the diocese of Worcester in the Church of England, which has a long-standing relationship with the diocese of Peru. We gathered with them and a handful of our Peruvian hosts at the Cathedral for a presentation on the current status and future strategy of the diocese of Peru. Weekend enjoyed a lovely lunch in the garden of the cathedral deanery. The rest of the day was spent with informal visiting and dinner with our British friends.
