Retirement is a JOY - off to Peru in two weeks

Posted by frianm on Saturday, February 14, 2009

I retired formally Jan 4 and it is a joy.  The pastorate can be stressful and yet wonderful.  My wife and I spent the last three weeks on a tour of old friends and to get some sunshine in Texas and Florida - Vermont can be gorgeous but chilly at this tie of year.
March 3 we head to Lima, Peru for three months of language study prior to our becoming missionaries there some time in the late fall.  I shall be teaching and mentoring clergy there with a special emphasis on ministry to the poor in the shanty towns.
What banjo to take?  I am thinking my Vega based on a great Dan Pennington rim.  We shall see.

Blessings dear friends.

I wish you ythe best on your mission to Peru. My wife is from El Salvador and I hope one day to play the banjo in Latin America as a way of  cultural sharing.

Hope you will keep us posted on your experiences.
