Juan's Baptism

On May 2 Juan Alfedo Pando Castro was baptized by Alan. He is a man that we have been teaching for 8 weeks and is very excited to be a member of this church.

Sebastian baptism

On April 24 Sebastian Linan was baptized. He is 8 years old but needed to take the lessons because his family was inactive. He is a wonderful kid and pray that he will one day be a missionary. He was baptized by his Uncle Chrstian DaVila.

Native Peruvian Dog

As we have been knocking doors we have came across this dog several times. I had to get a picture of it. Everytime I see this dog it reminds me of the Hyanas in Lion King and I have to laugh when I see this dog. These dogs have no hair at all. What do you think?


On April 7 we went to some ruins called Pachucamac with some other Senior Missionaries and then we went to dinner at a restaurant that skymile magazine recomended but I can't remember what the name of it was.

My Granddaughter being a missionary

My granddaughter Hope had made lots of flower suckers so that we could give them to the children down here in Peru. What a great way to show her testimony of missionary work than to share her talents and time with others. Thanks Hope for your love and support.

Zone Conference

This is Alan and President Leyva eating foot long sandwiches after a Zone Conference.

Orange Bird

While we were waiting for a district meeting in Musa I saw this pretty orange bird flying around but everytime I went to take a picture it would fly away. I was sitting watching it fly around and finally it landed on this bush and stayed there long enough for me to take this picture.

Volley Ball with our Zone

Here we are after playing volley ball for 2 hours with the young missionaries. I must say we did a pretty good job of keeping up with them. Alan even had some great saves. I think the missionaries were surpised. The next day we could tell that we had done something that we normally don't do.
