DJ & Jodi Visit the Village of Malla
In mid-March, we took a trip out to the village of Malla (pronounced My-a), a small village located in a high valley surrounded by steep mountains. The purpose of the trip was to survey a potential runway site and give recommendations to the mayor and his council. The area was beautiful and we drove for hours on a four-wheel drive track cut into the side of the mountain. We saw lots of llamas, vicuñas (small, wild llama-like animals), and a huge Andean condor. The runway site is located on the top of a rounded alpine mountain at 16,000 ft, not too far from rugged snow-capped mountains reaching to 21,000 ft. The only unfortunate thing from the whole trip is that I accidentally deleted all our photos from the day! In the future we will be helping to advise the village on the proper building of the runway site. We are excited to begin working with the surrounding villages and finding out and meeting some of their needs as God leads. Pray for the people in the village of Malla that God will open their hearts to his love.
