The train keeps moving!

Missionary work is like a train, it keeps moving forward.  When a new president arrives the old president jumps off the train and the new president jumps on.  The work continues on because the Lord is the master engineer.  Mission presidents only help to guide His train and His work.

Mission leadership council.  We love having the sisters attend.  They add very valuable spiritual insight.
Our sister leaders are:  Hermana Vasquez, Mamani, Zagal,
 Orellana and Alvear.
July 1,2013 the mission will be divided and the new Peru Iquitos Mission will be created.  This mission will include most all the jungle cities in Peru.  The American zone leaders had one last chance to say good bye to each other before the divide.
 The president has had two counselors serving with him the last three years.  President Chauca and President Cavero, both served as stake presidents here in Peru.  They have both provided excellent help to President Blunck and the mission.

 Last visit to the members in Yurimaguas.
We have four missionaries serving in this jungle city
To travel to Yurimaguas you fly into Tarapoto and then catch a taxi and travel 2.5 hours to this town over the most curvy roads in Peru.

  1. Sister Blunck...I want to thank you for your wonderful service of posting this blog. You have done an awesome job and my family and I have enjoyed viewing it. You've brought Peru right into our home, followed with the spirit. I have to say it brought tears to my eyes seeing your last pictures before you depart.
    May the good Lord bless you for all of your great efforts, I can tell you've both been super great leaders for those missionaries.
