(Look at all those people!!)
We spent a lot of our hunting time at the Plaza de Armas there in Cusco. And as the next few day progressed we began to hear testimonies of people finding some of the clues on our list. One of them was PATTY, she was the daughter of the hotel owner, MARIA. Maria was new believer, had just gotten a bible the week before we arrived at her hotel. Maria's daughter Patty lived in another city and was going through a hard time. Some of out team was able to pray with Maria, and this was a huge encouragement to her.
Remember Alexander, Mekala's other name..... well someone found him too. He worked for the orphanage and was in the Plaza trying to collect money. Our team talked to him and asked him if he knew Jesus. He said that he had, but he had done so many bad things since, that he didn't think that he could know him again. (This is why the Treasure hunt is so cool) They told him how we had prayed and how God had given us his name and he broke down weeping. They told him about God's love and forgiveness and I believe that his life was changed.
Thank you Lord that you know everyone, down to the number of hairs on their head. And that you Love each on so much that you would send people out looking for them, like the Shepard and his one lost sheep. Thank you for letting us be a part of restoring your flock!
