Helping Hands in Tarma

To our surprise and amazement, as we arrived at our new home in Tarma, we found a whole swarm of brothers and sisters working to get our home ready for us. They painted inside and out, refurbished the wooden parquette floors in three rooms, and did general cleaning.

This picture shows hermano Ciro Meza (front), presidente Romaní (our branch president, in back), and Kevin Sánchez (a great young man in our branch, at right) painting the fence in front of the home.


This picture shows Kevin doing some detail work.


And here´s the finished product. We´ll post pictures of the inside later.
It´s hard to describe how much love and acceptance we have felt in the short two weeks that we have been here in Tarma. We are treated just like family by the warm Peruvian members.

Bet those Peruvians are so thankful to have you there! How thoughtful of them...and what a wonderful welcome to their community.

PS: We're already talking about our trip to visit you in that big house:-)
