Hermana Dinklang Goes Through the Temple

The sweet and enthusiastic sister at the right is Hermana Karín Silva de Dinklang, a member of our ward who was just endowed in the Lima Temple. She has been a member for many years, but Brother Dinklang is newly baptized (they plan to be sealed in a year). We have been reviewing the missionary lessons with the Dinklangs and we love this family.

This pictures shows Sister Dinklang (center) immediately after going through the temple.

The woman on the left is Hermana Ruby Vega de Cortijo, an avid genealogist. Scott has done vicarious work at the Lima Temple for several of her deceased relatives. We visited her recently and talked about her genealogy work, her membership, and her deep faith in the Lord. We also met her returned-missionary daughter (Silvia).

There aren't any more enthusiastic, loving members of the Church anywhere in the world than these two wonderful Peruvian sisters.
