Peace Corps - 4/27/2016

This past week we have had a couple of visitors to the temple.

Scott and Lori Adelman were here on Tuesday April 26 to see their daughter Katy who is in the Peace Corps here in Peru.  She is in a small town of Contumaza (Contumaz√° is a town in Northern Peru, capital of the province Contumaz√° in the region Cajamarca.)  They are from Sandy Utah and presently live in Katy, Texas.  They have two other daughters who have or are serving missions.

There are 243 Volunteers in Peru working with their communities on projects in community economic development, the environment, health, and youth development. During their service in Peru, Volunteers learn to speak local languages, including Quechua and Spanish. More than 3,475 Peace Corps Volunteers have served in Peru since the program was established in 1962.

Preston and Vanessa Alder were here at the temple on April 27.  They were married a week ago in the Payson Temple.  They recently graduated from BYU and are here in Peru on an internship for several weeks.
