Peru~ Random Crosses

Whenever we were driving throughout Peru we would come across these beautiful crosses high up on the mountain tops.

All of us on the team would point them out to one another and we'd all snap a few photos.
On our last day in Peru we learned that the Incan Indians who settled high up in the mountains were being visited regularly by Christians.

In an effort to stop the Christians from hiking the mountain and interrupting their tribal ceremonies they planted these crosses.

Pretty clever plan I must say.

Christians passing through see the crosses and assume the village up on high are already believers and they keep on going.

So if you are ever in Peru and your purpose is to spread the Gospel - go to the crosses FIRST!
