This week started off with a long-planned Historia Familiar meeting with the Relief Society of barrio Vista Allegre. Due to scheduling conflicts, we had to postpone it twice, and we were very glad that it came off as planned - and was well attended. The members are so sweet here, especially the hermanas. After an introduction and video, and a talk by Hna. Denisse Bueno (the Stake History Familiar Specialist), Hna J is instructing, with Elder Black translating. It won't be too much longer (well maybe) before she'll be able to speak in Espanol all by herself. As we've said, learning the language is the hardest thing for ancianos (ancient ones) like ourselves.
Well, it's home to pack and get ready for our week-long trip to Puno, Juliaca, and Juli by Lake Titicaca at the very southern end of the mission. It's higher there (12,600 feet), and its colder, so we're packing all of our warmies and hope to survive. It will be another adventure, and another opportunity to serve the wonderful people of Peru.
