About the Book
This book presents a pictorial history of our service for the LDS Church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saiants, aka the Mormon Church) in the Peru Lima East Mission between October 2008 and September 2009. The 337 photographs show the spectacular sights and vistas of Peru, mostly in the Central Peruvian High Andes, and shows the varied and colorful Peruvian culture.
