Teaching Institute in the Tarma District

While Beverly is teaching music (see her previous post), Scott is teaching Institute classes. He teaches a class on the Doctrine and Convenants (Doctrina y Convenios) on Thursday evenings. Here are his students from the second week of classes. The district president and his wife are on the far left.

Here's the members of the Book of Mormon class that Scott teaches on Friday evenings. Some of the students are the same as the Thursday night class.

On Saturdays, Scott and Beverly travel to La Oroya (altitude 12,200 ft), where Scott teaches Book of Mormon (El Libro de Mormón) and then they travel to Junín (13,500 ft), where Scott teaches another Libro de Mormón class. The first group of students from one of the classes is shown here. The young man on the left is putting in his papers to go on a mission. The man next to him is the Junín branch president. His wife is second from the right.

One of the students (shown in the previous picture) is this wonderful sister. She is 72 years old and is about 4 feet tall. She has been a member of the Church for about 1½ years, and is excited about learning more about the Book of Mormon.

Wow. I love the portrait of the woman at the bottom. It's sharp and has very nice lighting.
