Big Honors from the Mayor

This morning we were invited to the Mayor's Office
which is the big blue and white building in the Plaza de Armas.

The missionaries were all ready for their service project with their 
yellow vests on but first they were invited into the 
Ceremonial Press Room

They played the National Anthem for the United States...
Then the Peruvian National Anthem...

And then they played the Trujillo Anthem...
That's a lot of Anthems!

The Spokesman for the Mayor then read a beautiful tribute to 
President Terry Dean Turk
in honor of his service for three years here in Trujillo.

The Mayor presented him with the 
 "Medallion of the City and the Diploma of Honor"
the highest Award that the Mayor can give.

They then turned the time over to President Turk
who spoke about how our grateful we are for our time here in Trujillo.
He also said that the city is progressing forward and has a bright future
especially if they will embrace the Lord, Jesus Christ
and focus all efforts on strengthening the Family.

The Mayor then spoke and told President Turk that he was grateful for what
he has done for his city... and that they would be friends forever.
The Mayor really has been helpful in all of our endeavors here.

President Turk then gave the Mayor a copy of 
"A Proclamation to the World - The Family"

It was a wonderful opportunity to teach truth.
We were so happy that our missionaries were there too.

The Mayor is going to be running for the President of the whole
Country of Peru in the next election.
Best of Luck and Thank you Alcalde
for the beautiful tribute to my husband.

The Alcalde has told us before that the missionaries are doing far more
for the people of Peru than anything any politician is doing now
or has ever done... 

Isn't that the Truth!

Thank You...  Alcalde Cesar Acuña Peralta
