The Long and Short of Our Member District

Here's a picture of two wonderful women who live in the Tarma District. The woman on the left, my amazing companion, is the tallest female LDS member (5' 6" in height) in the district. The woman on the right, Dominga Contreras, a wonderful convert of a year or two, is the shortest female LDS member (about 3' 11") in the district. She lives in the high (13,500 feet), cold, windswept, remote town of Junín in the altiplano of the Central Peruvian Andes. She is a faithful member of my weekly Book of Mormon class there.


I just couldn't resist getting their picture together, much to the delight of all the branch members, who found the height difference as amusing as I did.

It's so fun to see your pictures and read about your experiences. Our 'Daughter, Sarah Scoresby, is also serving in the Peru Lima East Mission. Right now, she is near Huancayo.

Hey, it's nice to find your blog. I served in the Peru Lima North mission from 1985 to 1987. I have a son now serving in Brazil.
