Day 2 – A Long Hike

This morning, we made the hike up to the Cross on the top of the mountain (from 3700 ft to 7700 ft). Rather than come down via the same route we went up, Jorge decided to take us down the back side of the mountain which made for a fun yet challenging trek, lengthening our hike by approximately 30%. Once we nursed ourselves back to health with some rice and beans, we headed to El Centro (the park in the middle of the city) to hand out Empanadas to the local “street people” and invite everyone to Jorge’s new church plant.
