A Great First Week in Chan Chan

The first week in Chan Chan ended on a high note with the dedication of the new temple in Trujillo.

President Dieter F. Uchtdorf, Second Counselor in the First Presidency, dedicated the Church’s 147th temple on Sunday, June 21. Following the dedication, he invited several Peruvian youth to help place mortar around the cornerstone of the temple. 

This is a picture of Zac's new companion, Elder Newman, in what Zac describes as their "garage shack." Comparing Zac's bottom bunk with Elder Newman's top bunk it's easy to see some of the differences between the Stanford and the West Point philosophies.  Nevertheless, these two have hit if off great and share a similar sense of humor.

From Granados to Chan Chan

Last Tuesday, Zac said goodbye to people he will miss in Granados and headed to his new area of Chan Chan.

He will miss his good friend Elder Connelly.

He will also miss Miguel who has been a great friend to the missionaries

Thank You For the Birthday Wishes and Pictures!

Zac thanks all of the family and friends who sent birthday
wishes his way this week.  He loved the crazy pictures
and greetings! This is a picture of him yesterday at the internet cafe.
Today he is leaving Granados and heading to Chan Chan.
The only thing we know about his new companion is that he
played football at West Point.  We'll have more info next week.
