Los Hartman - Los Fackrell - UVU- - Los Alder -Highlights of the Week - 5/18/2016

The Highlights of the week

We had another fast week serving in the temple.  We worked the afternoon shift with the Hartman's.  They served in the Logan Temple for a couple of years before coming here, so they are have many more temple hours than we have.

Jim and Patti Fackrell came on Thursday with a Sister who received her endowment. She's from their branch in Chocope.  They were here again on Friday with a family to be sealed and Saturday morning they came early with Marler's for an early 7:00 special session and training with a few branch presidencies.

There were a few other groups that came.  On Friday, about 20 young students from UVU came to our temple to do a session.  It was fun to be able to officiate the session they were in. They're a group from home and that's what made it special. This same group of kids were at the Sacrament meeting we went to on Sunday, Laureles
Sorry, it is really blurry.

The Alders are a cute couple we met a few weeks ago when they came to the temple.  They are from Mesa, Arizona, they just graduated from BYU, they just got married in the Payson Temple, and they are here in Peru to do an internship. They were in our Sacrament meeting.

Sister Alder wrote us this sweet note.  

Monday we decided to go for a long walk.  We walked to Romano's and had Tallarines Alfredo with a little steak for lunch, it hit the spot.  We took a taxi home. Wayne looked on Google Earth, it was about a 4-1/2 mile walk.

Tuesday evening Sandy Hartman brought us some Chocolate Chip Muffins.  They were moist and delicious. There were 6 but we couldn't wait until after dinner to have one.  They were a sweet treat.

The 13th was my Mom's 89th Birthday.  She is a wonderful person.  Everyone who knows her loves her.  She is definitely one of a kind.  I sure do love her!

This is Sister Tirado's little Grandson, Adriana.  It's fun to see Peruvian kids, they are so cute, but at the same time it makes me miss all of our Grandkids at home, from the youngest to the oldest.
We appreciate the temple missionaries we serve with, for being our friends.  Sometimes we get discouraged, but we are enjoying the spirit of the people who work with us everyday and the members who come and go are amazing.  We've grown to love them.  I appreciate their kind gentle and loving ways.  They are happy with their simple way of life.  We have been so blessed and I am so thankful for this opportunity to serve them and serve with them.
