So you ask, "What do you do in Chimbote?"

We travel to the southern part of our mission each month.  
President meets with the various 
stake presidents, and we meet with our missionaries.
Quite often, the question is asked, "What do you do in Chimbote?" 
You can see a bit of the highlights below:
We have spent the las week in Chimbote, Casma and Huarmay. We have had a great time with the missionaries, and the Stake, Branch and District Leaders.
It is always such a pleasure to be with everyone

 Friday we had time for proselytizing with the missionaries.   
Sister Marler was with Sister Butterfield and Sister Skirvin.
President Marler was with  Elder Copa and Elder DeLaCruz...a wonderful afternoon was had by all
We were off to Casma for meetings with the new District Presidency on Friday night.

On Saturday, President went out with Elder Beuhner and Elder Bacerra.  

 Hermana Estrada and Hermana Balcaza spent the day with Hermana Marler

 Elder Rotolo and Elder Endicott gave a wonderful presentation to the Casma District Leadership

We had a great dinner in Casma...the Elders display their favorite meal as a Peruvian Flautist shares his talents.
Hermana Estrada and Hermana Balcaza joined us on our trip to Huarmay and taught the Young Women a lesson on dating and modesty.  

Sister Marler taught a lesson in Relief Society on the role of women in the church, and our part in the work of salvation.

 The Huarmay Branch Council met, after having 120 attending Sacrament Meeting, the full council talked about helping the local member and investigators.
