The Marlia-Larsens

Since being in Oregon we have had the privilege of meeting some great new friends. Unfortunately it seems that just as we begun our friendship some of our awesome friends are leaving! They are going to do an amazing work in Peru with a mission organization and we could not be more happy to share their joy in following God’s call for their lives and praying for them.

Their primary focus will be to assist in the development of an outpatient medical clinic, spearheaded by a Peruvian doctor who shares the desire to impact the lives of those whom are too easily forgotten and trampled upon. They are passionately committed to serving those people in the outlying areas of Tacna, Peru who are removed from access to healthcare.

Brian and Lori Jo have been working as nurses and saving up their own living expenses for the year they are in Peru! However if you would like to send them a gift to help with unforeseen expenses or to to help with the construction of the medical center they are helping with you can do so here. Click the Paypal button on that page and enter “Marlia-Larsen Tacna” in the notes. Thank you!

Here is this beautiful family: Brian, Lori Jo, Nick (12), and Cielo (5) from our time together at Lithia Park in Ashland, Oregon yesterday.

I was taking pictures of the boys and spotted this “private moment” that I invaded with my lens. I love that they are barefooted.
