Elder D. Todd Christopherson was the speaker at the first official missionary meeting that we attended, a conference for all of the missionaries serving in Lima (5 missions). Elder Christopherson is an amazing speaker. He spoke in fluent, beautiful, native-like Spanish. It was a spiritual feast.

The meeting was held at the Missionary Training Center in Lima, with about 800 missionaries that work in Lima and are currently at the MTC here. About 75% of the missionaries are Latinos and 25% North Americans. Here is a picture of missionaries mainly from our mission, the Peru Lima East. The picture shows a higher percent of North Americans at the front, because that is where the choir sat, and most of the choir members were gringos.
