Week 22 ~ Men of Faith, Commitment and Testimony

This blog represents more of the a "typical" week for us and our mission.  Not every week do we have the opportunity to spend our p-day visiting the many interesting places in this marvelous country of Peru.  Most of the days this week were spent planning for our "in country" meeting with our Peru Central AAAs. We did spend Tuesday evening, along with other, missionary couples, at a wonderful cultural event full of dancing and singing to celebrate the Peruvian Independence day.  We had a marvelous training meeting with seven amazing brethren from Iquitos, Huancayo, and Lima.  This now completes our nearly four months of training in four countries, including North and Souith Peru.
We have been enriched by these 35 wonderful brothers who are serving so faithfully, mostly on there own.  They are talented and knowledgeable, many of which are former stake presidents, mission presidents, and even area 70's.  We now enter the midyear audit cycle and then will begin planning our area wide training in December.  We are so thankful for the experiences we have had the past 5 1/2 months and await the next 6 months with wonder and anticipation.

  1. Hi Di and Joe,
    Thanks for the phone call to ask about our Machu Picchu trip. We are really looking forward to it!. However, it appears that we will be moving to Sarasota, Florida in late November or December this year. We would like to come to Peru after tax season around the end of May, 2016. Of course, if you have an opportunity to go with others before then, please don't think you have to wait for us. My email is judyportlock@gmail.com and David's is portlock.dbs@gmail.com. Love to you both, Judy
