We had a very eventful year in 2016. Please feel free to visit the two blogs for this year, as well as the photo album for the November visit.  To wrap it all up, we made a short (4 minute 51 second) video that goes over the highlights of this first full year of being a fully staffed mission with resident missionaries to engage daily with the local population. &nbsp

2016 (Aug) Video of Hearts & Hands visit to Peru Mission

Short video of the Hearts & Hands Knitting ministry from San Diego, and their visit to Peru. They spent a week training the local villagers, alnd supplying them, for knitting and crocheting. They ran ten classes, 5 for adults and 5 for youth. They brought and left behind spanish 'how to" books, needles, hooks, looms, yarn, and a rewinder. They created a group of four that committed to lead and carry on further training to widen the knowledge base. After leaving the first week we published a schedule and had two adult meetings, the second week, those two meetings continued as well as two yourh meetings. A very large interested base of knitters have formed around the mission and the training received. Thank you Hearts & Hands for your very unique gift to the mission. May we make the most of it.
