Kids birthday party

Today they had a birthday party in our back yard and at the club house.

New Missionaries 1/13/10

This group of new missionaries appears to be a very good group. In fact Pres. Groberg of the MTC said this is one of his best groups. Not a single missionary is from Peru. The majority are from Guatamala.

The week of changes Jan 13, 2010

Doctor Slingerland comes to our office twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays. He sees missionaries from our mission and the South mission. He came the week of changes. Elders having fun.

The Elders love to play the card game golf as do the Tylers. We met at the Presidents home for Elder Huamani's birthday and he going home and Elder Malale going to Quillabamba. We had pizza instead of going to a restaurant.

Missionaries going home. Elder Bravo and elder Huamani had a girl friend that came to the testimony meeting.

Elder Huamani with his companion elder Jenkins and with Karen. He was an assistant with both presidents.

Inka Shops

Inka Shops
There are hundreds and hundreds of little vendors selling their wares from clothing, dolls, purses, jewelry etc. We didn't buy anything but got a good idea of some of the things that they have.


One of many highways in Lima. This is Avenida Arequipa that runs north and south. Maybe 9-10 blocks from our apartment. During rush hour this road will be packed.


Another highway running thru Lima.

On our P-day we went to Miraflores and ate at a fantastic restaurant just above the cliff. The tall building in the background is the Marriott hotel. The name of the restaurant was Mangos. It was buffet.
