Tent Meeting Quichua Style


Many Quichua communities hold a big tent meeting every few years. We were invited to give workshops for such a meeting in "Herrerías." The plan was to work with women and youth, but after arriving we found out that we were to give general conferences and classes for children. You have to be prepared for anything. I've also learned that these tent meetings are not just for conferences, but also for fellowship. Nicky, my niece who is visiting with us, and I got involved in peeling potatoes. They have to feed 1000 people each night! As someone continued to dump sacks of potatoes for peeling, we chatted with folks and had a great time. (We also gave our classes.)
