Stop Doing This: Lima, Peru


Hi, Lovelies!

We did not get to go to Bolivia during Month 2, so we remained in Peru but were involved with a different ministry.

She wasn’t a Christian, so a little different, but when did we start to make beauty sexual? Christian culture makes pretty girls feel guilty for the body GOD GAVE them. ⁣
