President Turk went out with these Elders in Viru today.
Elder Fajardo and Elder Vasquez.
And the exciting thing that is happening in Viru is ...
The new chapel that they are about to dedicate.
Look at this big Beauty behind them.
Here are a bunch of the Elders from Viru
(Blay, Fajardo, Ramirez, Brito, Mennis, Vasquez & Brother Rojas)
And look at the new sports court.
This is about the only basketball court we have seen here in Peru.
There are a few but it is definitely the only one with nets.
And here is the sweetest story...
This is Brother Rojas with the Elders. He is the ward mission leader here in Viru.
He wanted to go out and work with the Elders today because...
...It was 12 years ago today that he was baptized.
He and his family live straight down this path behind the corn field
He lives in the most humble little home.
He told President Turk that he
has Nothing in the world that is worth much
but he has Everything that truly matters.
He and his family have been sealed together in the Temple
and his sons have served missions.
He said they are the richest people in the blessings
of the Gospel and that they couldn't be happier.
"This Gospel means Everything to Us"
