On the last day of the mission, all missionaries receive a training in
preparing for the "real world."
Applying for jobs, using your skills you have learned as a missionary to
better you life, your family and your employment.
Thanks to Brother Juan Leyva, we have prepared missionaries.

Look at the amazing group who came to say...
"I love you"
A few hugs,
a few tears,
a few smiles,
and a wave good-bye!
We love you and will miss you all!
Mom's and Dad's, here they come.
Back to work.

Oh how I wish there were words to express all of the feelings that our missionaries feel
as they prepare to go home.
They are sad, they are happy, they are excited, they are grateful.
But deep within there are inexpressible feelings.
You can see it in their eyes, they feel it in their hearts.

Victor and Jenny and their family were baptized by Elder Marshall, Elder Craft and Elder Arenas.
A supportive ward means everything to a new convert.
Micaela was taught and baptized by Elder Manley and Elder Heward.
Oh yes, we will miss this lovely creations when we go home.
And I have the best husband ever, who stops the car every time I spot an Alpaca or Llama.
I think if we had alpaca's in the United States, they would have been the official cutest stuffed animal, instead of a teddy bear!
Elder Craft teaching a group of alpacas.
Alpaca herding and its finest, Elder Marshall using his best skills to coral them.
This cute little baby just stopped and stared at us.
After a successful day of herding alpacas...
We also found a Llama beside the road, we had to stop, get spit at and take a few pictures.
Elder Arenas, with his new friend.
We also found a friend from the ward walking down the street, Sister Juana.
It was so nice to see her and have a visit.
It started to rain and around one corner was a beautiful rainbow.
We also saw a few turkeys.
We just loved our drive home from Huamachuco, we will miss the Andes.
