Hello from Peru

Hello everybody!

We had another great week.

I hope all is well with those of you who are following our adventures. 

Last Sunday we went to church at 8:00 and we stayed for the 10:00 meeting. The members are so loving and warm. Every ward we go to we see people who come to the temple or work in the temple. We exchange hugs and talk a little. It is so good to be in these meetings with the members. 

This is Sister South and Sister Roach, The sister on the right is their investigator,  Zoimy, her sister and niece.

 This is Sister Olson she is from Canada and Sister Beasley, she is from Georgia. Their investigator is Luana. She is almost 11 and is such a sweet girl. She loved my hugs. I told these sisters to let us know when Luana gets baptized so we can go.  As we visited with Sister Olson, Wayne figured out her Bishop in Canada, was here on his mission with Wayne 40 years ago. I thought that was neat. 

These next pictures are just random pictures of what we see as we come and go.

Last week for our Monday, we went to Chan Chan.  This is what Wikipedia says about it. If you want to find out more check it out. 

Chan Chan was constructed by theChimú, a late intermediate periodcivilization which grew out of the remnants of the Moche civilization. Theadobe city of Chan Chan, the largest in the world, was built around 850 CE and lasted until its conquest by the Inca Empire in 1470. It was the imperial capital where 30,000 people lived.

These are some of our pictures. 

It was amazing to see this city built out of mud. The visitor center was closed so we weren't able to get all the details about this amazing place. We enjoyed it. 

We went to lunch and met these Elders. They were fun to talk to. We always love seeing the young missionaries. 

Last Saturday October 10th Benson got baptized and Hank was blessed. We were able to be there through Skype. It was nice to feel the spirit of the meeting with all of our family there. I am proud of Benson for his good choice. 

October 15th was Crosby's Birthday. He is 2. It was fun to talk to him. 

We met Chris and Bonnie Victors at the temple yesterday. They are from Anchorage Alaska and have been back packing along the Inca trail for almost a month. Wayne gave them the address to the church and they joined us today. They work in the Anchorage temple. Maybe someday our paths will cross again. 

Monday the 12th was our 37th anniversary. WOW!  That has gone by fast. I love Wayne more and more. I have loved being his wife. Since we have been on our mission we have had a wonderful time doing almost everything together. The only time we are away from each other is when we are in the temple and we do our own assignments, but our paths cross a lot while we are there too. I am happy and loving each day. I think Wayne is happy too. I look forward to many more wonderful years with my best friend.

I hope you all have a great week!  We are all so blessed.
