For a long time I couldn't find many missionaries to Peru that were blogging, but that has changed. They are more and more all the time! Here are a few blogs you might enjoy if you're interested in what's happening in Peru:
The oldest blog out of Peru that I'm following right now is called Maxwell's House
. Emma Maxwell is the writer, a "Northern Irish Woman in Peru". Emma has been blogging since August 2004, and she's still going strong. You can subscribe to her news feed at emmamaxwell.blogspot.com/rss.xml
If you want more frequent posting, right now that would be Becca In Perú
. Becca's no newbie either. She's been blogging since August 2005, starting with some of her first impressions of Peru. Pictures, stories, and video - you won't want to miss it! Catch her news feed at beccajoyperu.blogspot.com/rss.xml
And, by the way, Becca has started a second blog called Side Notes
