A Week of Women...

We had Hermana Sandstrom and Hermana Shearman over for a sleep over.
They actually had to travel in from Chimbote for an appointment
so they stayed the night in the Mission Home....
It was fun to be with them.

President went out teaching with Hermana Coronel and Hermana Cornelio.
They ran into all these members in their area...
So President took their picture.

They had the opportunity to teach this man, Jorge.  
He is the only one in his family that has not been baptized
His wife and children were not there when they were teaching him.
He has taken the lessons and been to church many times.
President Turk taught him and bore his testimony 
and invited him to be baptized on Saturday... 
and guess what... He agreed!
He didn't want to tell his wife and children
until right before.
He wanted to surprise them. 

Sweet Hermana Cornelio, as she was praying and thinking about how to 
teach Jorge during the week, she had a dream that President Turk
was bearing his testimony to Jorge and he accepted to be baptized.
This was way before they heard that President Turk 
was coming to teach with them.

These young women are great missionaries.

Jorge was baptized this evening... The baptism was beautiful
 and now the family is complete. 
This is his beautiful granddaughter with him.

Thanks also to the Zone Leaders...
Elder Northcott and Elder Vera II.
They always go above and beyond to help in any way.

Remember President Turk was also out teaching with
Hermana Petherbridge and Hermana Galleguillos this week.

A great week with the woman!
