We had an exciting, jam packed weekend with wonderful guests... Elder Christofferson, one of the twelve Apostles and his wife, Elder Nash from the first quorum of the Seventy, our Area President and his wife, Elder Pino, also a seventy and in our area presidency with his wife. Elder Clayton and his wife were scheduled to be with us but they ended up going to California to the funeral of the Bishop that was shot. They just got to Peru today and we will miss them. They are heading to another mission.
This picture is taken at the Temple sight.
Elder Pino, Pres. Turk, Elder Christofferson, Elder Nash
Thousands of people came to hear him speak. There were long lines of people waiting to shake his hand. They spent many hours greeting people which is really nice.

Then Sister Handa (translator) Me and Sister Montoya.
While the men were having priesthood training, we split up and went on visits
to members homes.
We also took a tour of the city with a guide.
The Elders met with the Mayor here to keep good relations.
He wants to run for President of Peru in 3 years.
He is not a member of the church but asked for a blessing.
Elder Christofferson gave him a powerful blessing. It was very touching.
The Mayor came to our stake conference the next day.
All great things must come to an end.
We took them to the airport this morning.
I testify that he is one of the Lord's Twelve Apostles on the earth.
He told us that the Temple will begin in about six months
We should be here to see the completion... YES!
