Friday Morning Walk

Friday Morning Walk

This morning we went for a walk to the Parque Eterno Cemetery next to the temple.  It's a very beautiful cemetery, with lots of flowers and it's
very well maintained.

We got in trouble for taking this picture.  The guard in the cemetery said photos were prohibited.
WHAT!!  No photos in the cemetery???  That makes no sense.

I liked the sunflowers in front of the temple.  Cemetery sidewalk

We also walked to the mall, saw this along the way.

They were working on the poles at the intersection by the mall.  If we come back to Trujillo,  this will be different.  

We went in Tottus one last time to get some eggs for me to make cookies tomorrow.  I got a few treats for our trip home.

Happy Birthday President  Casos

This afternoon, Wayne and I went to have lunch with the Quintanilla family.  They have been so good to us, they are a great friends.  We've felt like we're part of their family and we've been to their home many times.  This family is a great example and they're wonderful members of the church.  The Tirado family was also there.  They are a great members of the church too and have been great friends too.  
We had a lovely meal of Lomos Saltado.  I've wanted to have this before we went home.  Now I can check that off my list.

At 7:00 pm we went to the Alverca home for dinner.  Brother Alverca is a cordinator in the temple and Sister Fanny Alverca is a volunteer in the temple, she is also Sister Quintanilla's sister.  We had an enjoyable time with them.   We've known them since we go there, but this is the first time we've been to their home.  She served us sweet chicken with pinapple and potatoes.  It was good.  Also a custard type pie for desert.

Paulo and Christian are twins.  They're 16, Luhana is 8, and Renzo is 12.  

This is me and Luhana.  She was so sweet to me.  When we got ready to leave, she gave me one of her friendship bracelets.

While we were at the Alverca's home, these two sisters came for just a few minutes.  They were baptized yesterday.  There was a very sweet spirit about them.  The oldest one was wearing a gord necklace.  I mentioned how neat it was and a few minutes later, she took it off and gave it to me.  

Later in the evening,  I learned that the mother of these girls passed away a month ago.  They are orphans now.  The oldest one is 19 and the younger one is 12.  They live in their house alone, I'm not sure what supports them but they are sweet girls.  I am honored to have the necklace she gave me and will always remember them. 

We had a wonderful Sunday!  We love these friends!

Saturday * Happy Birthday Alice and Jayne

July 1, 2017

.  This morning Wayne and I were at the temple at 6:30 to open. Saturday is always a busy day at the temple.  There were a lot of youth there to participate in baptisms.  

This group of young men were outside on the street trying to get a taxi.  Brother Alverca just stood back and let them to it.  It took stopping and asking over 10 taxi's before they finally go one for the right price.  

We rode the Huanchaco bus close to the plaza.  We got off and walked to a photo shop to get some little pictures of us printed.  We will be giving the pictures to our friends and temple workers.  We got 200 printed, then we decided to get 200 more.  I think we have plenty.  While we waited for the pictures , we walked to the little place that has the horses.  We took these pictures.  

I likes these pretty yellow flowers.  

notice the street sign Larco

Elder Schlesinger and his companion Elder Moncada.
They came to the temple with their new converts to do baptisms for the dead.

People outside the temple.  it was  a busy day.

Going home is beginning to feel real!

Tomorrow we're going to a 4th of July party at Los Casos.  My assignment is potqto salad, I also needed some vanilla to make some cookies.  Tonight we walked to the mall to get one last bunch of groceries.

Wayne printed our last temple schedule.

Happy Birthday Alice and Jayne 

Alice and Jayne are 2 which seems about right because they were 1 month old when we left for our 23 month mission.  Now they're 2.  
Happy Birthday Girls, we love you!
