Chimbote

For the Conferencia Chimbote we enjoyed the luxury of riding up with President and Sister Rios. What fun to meet with the Chimbote missionaries and see some of our "long lost sons." Here in Vir├║ they have what's called "Casa Capillas," churches in little houses, but in Chimbote they have a "Templo Capilla." It's not a temple, but it sure looks one. After the conference, we did some sight seeing and wound up by the ocean eating ice cream. Hermana Rios, being such a kind hearted saint, bought an ice cream for a man out picking up trash. He thanked her, then crossed the street to share it with his daughter and her baby. Hermana bought them another ice cream. Just then a little boy joined them, a son. Hermana bought another ice cream. Then another child showed up, a little girl. Hermana bought another ice cream. As they all strolled away eating their ice cream, they waved good bye with big smiles on their faces.
