We heard about Elder Ryan Santos even before we arrived in the mission, because his former bishop is a friend of Scott's. So we were thrilled when Elder Santos got transferred to Tarma about three months ago.
But now he's leaving Tarma and heading to Cerro de Pasco. It's hard to see him go, but Cerro is in our zone, so we'll see him at zone activities.
Elder Santos and Elder Bates visited us the night before Elder Santos left for Cerro:
Elder Illachura, another missionary here in Tarma, is also leaving. He didn't work in our area of Tarma so we didn't see him as much as we would have liked. Farewell and best wishes to both of these great missionaries.
