Mission Leadership Council February 2014

Our Mission Leadership Council is always a wonderful event.  We enjoyed training by President and Sister Marler, Elder Smith, Elder Zaveleta and Sister Calle.  
We are more prepared than ever to share the message of Jesus Christ to the people of Perú.

The Mission Leadership Council is made up of all Sister Leader Trainers and Zone Leaders, the President and his wife and the Assistants.  What a great group of missionaries!

President always asks for a goofy shot, so here you go.

The other side of goofy...

Elder Dennis, Nystrom, Smith, Soto, Coranado, Jimenez and Guerrero head for home this transfer with Sister Pocco and Sister Semorile.  We are losing some terrific missionaries!

Sister Mathis and Sister Childers are our newest Sister Leader Trainers

In addition to training, we play soccer, volley ball or have a service project after our meetings, this month was a sports month.

A little look into Peru...

I usually post picture of missionaries and all of our activities. 
I thought everyone might like to see a few of the things that make me just love Peru and our experience here.

I shared the road with this horse the other day…we see carts with donkeys, mules, people power, horses or bicycles every day

Room checks in Sister Christensen and Sister Watkins room made me smile with this lovely valentines card from home.

This is looking down on a kitchen in a restaurant where two of our missionaries live, the actually eat at the restaurant every day too…this kitchen is open to the sky up a few stories...

These are the hills up behind Gran Chimu… These houses are made of cement

This is actually a bird that was in my house yesterday morning…cute isn't he!

Here he is again, sitting on top of the television…looking out at the park longingly

I have to say there is never a dull moment here, and we love that, every day we see animals in the most interesting places, interesting things, wonderful people and great missionaries…we are really blessed.

Another great week sails by...

A few days ago, it was Elder Boekweg's birthday, and we had a fun evening together.

President Marler, Elder Tway, Elder Boekweg, Elder Tirada, Elder Hernandez, Elder Zavaleta, Elder Smith

Tonight we celebrated Elder Hernandez birthday at the mission home.  What a great time we had!

Elder Tirado, Hermano Alexsis, Elder Boekweg y Elder Tway

We also had Elder Niña here with us.  Elder Niña lives in Cachipampa and just arrived home tonight from his mission in Chiclayo.  We had a wonderful visit with him…thanks for representing the Trujillo Mission so well.

Elder Huallpa enjoyed his first Root Beer Float…he loved it!

Zone leaders, Elder Dow and Elder Diaz provided some training

Just a cute little flock of sheep we passed by, there they were just walking down the road, with out a shepherd.  So glad we have the Good Shepherd to lead us and guide us.  We don't have to be left stranded alone on the road like these 2 sheep.

Zona Laureles

We enjoyed a day with the Laureles Zone on Wednesday.  
Attending zone and district meetings, doing room checks (good job Laureles) and proselytizing, what a great day!

We came home to "this" beautiful art work on our garage door…. thanks mystery missionaries…we love you!
Thanks also to our neighbors, as a few of the sticky-notes fell off the door, they would collect them and put them under the door!  We are so thankful for great neighbors.
Every note had a little message from a missionary, we have read them all.
