Arrive in Puno, Peru

Getting started was a challenge: "Our arrival in the middle of the Peruvian winter, in frosty temperatures and without heating at 3,800 meters above sea level almost made us turn back on our heels and return to our sheltered lives," Johanna Drach writes in her first newsletter.

As coordinator, she accompanies Mission 21's partner organizations in Peru and Bolivia and their projects in the areas of education and agriculture/livelihood security. Since the summer of 2018, she has been living with her family in Puno, a medium-sized city on the shores of Lake Titicaca in the Peruvian Andes. 

A lot has happened since the difficult first days. In her newsletter, Johanna Drach also describes how she has settled in since then and she describes impressive and positive incidents from her work as coordinator for Mission 21.
