The Mission of Live 168
Here at Live 168, we have each been blessed to live rich, full lives. We try to live 168 hours per week, making each moment account for something meaningful and congruent with our values and goals. Our lives are defined by our purpose, passion, and progress.
However, as we look around us, both at home and in far-off lands, we see multitudes of people who are unable to live as they choose. Their health and circumstances keep them ever-focused on just staying alive.
Our mission at Live 168 is to lift individuals and communities out of survival mode and into a state of living—living 168 hours per week; defining their lives according to their own hearts, minds, and culture. We do this through medical service and training, humanitarian efforts, and literally standing by their side.
Peru - March 2018
Our humanitarian and medical service expedition to Peru, this coming March, requires extensive planning and organization. We have learned over the years that detailed planning helps maximize the quality and the quantity of service we can provide for mothers, babies, and others that need our limited time and resources. To make sure we hit the ground running, we have sent an advance team to make every necessary arrangement for our arrival.
Below, you will find March's itinerary, as currently planned.
Travel to Cuzco
Upon arrival in Cuzco, the goal will be to acclimate to the altitude, rest, drink plenty of water, and when ready do a little walking. There is plenty to do in Cuzco but you should spend this time gathering your strength for the days ahead.
Fly Home/Group A
We will be flying home with three different itineraries in 3 separate groups:
- Group A - anyone going home early (Sunday morning 01:00—1:00 a.m.),
- Group B - anyone flying home with Dr. Dowdle (Monday morning 01:00—1:00 a.m.),
- Group C - anyone going home with Patty Wheatley (Monday morning 01:00—1:00 a.m.).
Which group are you going to be in? Check out the itineraries now and decide ASAP.
Fly Home/Groups B & C
Group B - (Dr. Dowdle): Our goal will be to fly out of Juliaca to Lima as early as possible Saturday morning.
Group C - (Patty Wheatley): Group C will stay in Puno until Sunday afternoon after LDS church services. Depending on flight times they will fly to Lima in the afternoon and remain in the airport or very close by until check-in late that night.
...to all who will participate on this trip—to those who will actually be able to take this exciting, yet exhausting journey and to the many individuals and organizations that contribute support and resources to make this humanitarian effort possible.
