Went to the workshop in the morning and finished off standing frames # 3&4. I also trained Jose how to label the standing frames with the new serial number system which includes the first letter of the country the first letter of the city of the shop as well as the number that shop has produced. Here in Lima Peru with the serial number will be PL – 1 etc. signifying the first standing frame that was made in Lima. This system is born out of necessity to keep track of production locations and quality. I also showed him how to use the Google drive document recording all produced standing frames from around the world. We have a quick breakfast together with Julia and then Julie and I went to her church in downtown Lima. Sermon was about Darius the king of Babylon’s decree to allow for the rebuilding of the temple I Jerusalem and how after they built the temple they consecrated it. This remarkably relates to what we are doing here in Peru, we have now built our workshop and now we set it apart for the glory of God.
We then picked up Daniella, Julia’s daughter, and had Burger King for lunch on the way to experience an afternoon with Julia where she volunteers as an interpreter for individuals who are both blind and deaf at their weekly reunion. It was quite a learning experience for me not only learning some sign language, but also learning about tactile transmission of language. I even made a few new friends Eugenio and Eleira!
