Beach Clean Up

Throughout the world Mormon volunteers try to come together to do what they can to help in their communities.  They are known as Mormon Helping Hands.  Last Saturday, hundreds of Mormon volunteers participated in the annual beach clean up at Huanchaco, which is just outside of Trujillo.  

President Marler always sets a great example by working right alongside his missionaries.

And no one could ever call Sister Marler a slacker.

Zac got really sunburned but was glad to be a part of this great event.

A Transfer, a Project, a Baptism and a Milestone

Zac's companion, Elder Newman, was transferred to another area so now it's just Zac and Elder Lavado.  Zac and Elder Lavado get along really well so they were both happy to stay together for this last change.  Here is a picture of Zac's district right before Elder Newman was transferred:

                  Helping people in any way they can is a big part of what missionaries do.
                   A recent project involved a lot of paint.  We hope some got on the walls.

The happiest time for a missionary is when someone decides to go forward with the covenant of baptism. Roman's baptism was a wonderful experience for all who participated. Zac told us that Roman is one of the most amazing people he's ever met.

                           Finally, here is a picture of Zac as he thoughtfully contemplates
                                  reaching the half way milestone of his time in Peru.
