Elder Guerrero, from Argentina, served with Elder Hernandez.
Elder Guerrero was a sweet kind missionary and we loved working with him.
Elder Boekweg arrived next. He had big shoes to fill as our 2nd personal secretary.
As a relatively new missionaries he was still learning Spanish and had to learn a whole new vocabulary in medical terminology, and become an immigration specialist.
Elder Boekweg had a kind, loving heart and after leaving the office he served as a zone leader, and later a magnificent trainer.
He made a face every time the camera was aimed at him...he brought us a lot of joy and laughter.
He served as our Personal Secretary and was a joy to serve with.
He was super organized, and had a amazing voice. We loved to hear him sing at every meeting and his "Bring them Home" became the theme song for the mission.
After serving in the office, he was a very powerful zone leader, leading and loving the missionaries of the Palermo Zone.
Elder Tway also was fastidious and made sure every "i was dotted and t was crossed. "
He was also a great teacher, district leader and trainer.
We loved his soft spoken voice, yet firm testimony and love for his fellow missionaries.
His companion, Elder Angamarca joined us shortly thereafter.
Another kind, wonderful missionaries who kept the records in immaculate order.
Elder Angamarca finished his mission in the South Mission as a Zone Leader.
He was generous, kind, well organized, spiritual, and really liked Pinkberry, and the Mission Home kitchen. He and Elder Boekweg served as companions, and had a wonderful friendship. They also were super dedicated missionaries who taught and baptized while serving in the office.
Elder Leavitt could organize amazing service projects, and got to know everyone in Trujillo at every municipalidad office.
After 18+ months of service in the mission they were really missed when they left.
But their final act of love was training the new office Sisters, the Miller's.
He shared all of his treats from home with all of us, except I missed out on the cinnaburst bread.
After serving as a friend and secretary in the office, he served until the end of his mission as a
He made us Crema Volteada and tried to fatten us up.
He always asked, "is there anything you need me to do for you?", meant it and did it.
Even after his mission he served President Marler and I by helping to plan the Returned Missionary Reunion in Lima.
Elder Cano was a great help to Sister Vaughan and Sister Angell as they began their journey here,
And as a dear friend, he met them at the Lima airport to say good-bye on their way home.
He makes eternal friends, and is an angel.
Elder Romero has an amazing ability to show Christ-like love to all.
After serving in the office Elder Romero retuned to the field to serve as a Zone leader and trainer.
We were so blessed to have him as leader in the mission during this time of change, and privileged to have him as our friend.
Sister Sue Miller, above, takes care of all of the finances.
Sister Sandy Miller, below, takes care of all of the records, and
there is a lot of paperwork in the office.
They also love and care for missionaries, keep them housed and warm,
and just love being in the mission.
Every change in the office is difficult, we grow so close to those we work with every day,
and we miss them so much when they return to the mission field to complete their mission service.
Each of you are some of the angels who have watched over the mission.
We love you all!
