THE CUSCO CHRONICLES
THE CUSCO CHRONICLES

While the guys on the team have been working to grow the church in a variety of ways, Charla, Jennifer, and I have been teaching the children’s class on Sunday mornings, which has proven to be a big task. We’re on a monthly rotation right now with one of us teaching the lesson, the other doing a game/activity, and the other doing a craft with the kids. We always have a good group of kids, and on the Sunday of the inauguration, we had nearly 60 kids! That was mainly due to a group that came from the other congregation in town, as well as the extra visitors from that day. But since then, we’ve been having around 15-20 kids in class and it’s been encouraging to see how interested they are in coming to church and participating in class. Several of the kids come without their parents because their parents work all day on Sunday, and while this is challenging at times, we’re so happy to have these kids interested in learning about the Bible.

Cultural Corner:

The citadel of Chan Chan

We follow a blog about life here in Peru (written in English) called livinginperu.com . They have a great publication for free download f ro m t he i r s i t e called 101 Reasons to be Proud of Peru, and this article is taken from that publication. Barton and I were able to visit Chan Chan when we were in Trujillo last year.

The citadel of Chan Chan is the largest pre- Columbian adobe settlement in the world and was built between the 12th and 14th Centuries A.D. Located in the Moche valley in Trujillo, region of La Libertad, on the north coast of Peru, it has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Chan Chan was the ancient capital of the Chimu kingdom. It covers several square kilometers and its center is made up of a complex of palaces, walled enclosures and pyramids. Given its size, Chan Chan is an interesting tourist attraction.

Celebrating One Year

OUR FIRST YEAR HERE IN PERU

On October 26, 2009, we made the move to Peru that has changed our lives dramatically and blessed us more than we could have ever imagined. We’ve faced some challenges adjusting to a new culture, but overall it’s been a joy to learn the ins and outs of Peruvian life. We’ve made a lot of new friends, grown together as a team, and enjoyed showing off our home to our family and friends who’ve been able to visit us. I hope that all of our years here in Peru will be as blessed as this one has been.

Recipe of the Month

Atomatada

This recipe is modified from my friend Megan’s blog, who is a missionary in Arequipa. Every region of Peru has its own delicious cuisine, but I hear a lot of Peruvians brag on Arequipan food.

2

lbs thin steaks

5

large Roma tomatoes, peeled and diced

1

red onion, diced

aji colorado sauce (see below)

bread crumbs

water

vinegar

oil

soy sauce

Seasoning blend: 1 Tbs salt, 1/2 Tbs pepper, 1 tsp MSG

Season both sides of meat generously with seasoning blend. Arrange an area by the frying pan with bread crumbs. Prepare fryer with oil and allow to get very hot. Dip meat in bread crumbs and fry both sides until browned over med. high heat. ! Place aside on a plate. Put 2 Tbs of prepared aji colorado in a large pot with a 1/2 c of water. Cook until texture is creamy. Add 4 Tbs of oil and cook until oil turns red. Add tomatoes to mixture and cook until the texture is creamy (tomatoes will not be totally creamed into the sauce). ! Add 1 Tbs salt, 1 large spoonful (like a soup ladle) of vinegar, 1/2 of a large spoonful of soy sauce, and 1 tsp sugar. Simmer for 10 minutes to allow the onion to cook. Take out majority of the sauce into a bowl, add one bowlful of water, and allow to boil. Add meat and rest of sauce on top. Serve with hot rice and french fries.

Aji Colorado sauce: Here in Peru we can buy the sauce premade, but if you have access to aji panca peppers or a similar mild pepper, blend several of them with 1 branch of celery and 1 head of garlic for five minutes to make the sauce.
