the jovencitas on their way to lambayeque.
generally speaking, young women stay in their houses most of the day, helping with chores and taking care of small siblings or nieces and nephews. so basically, the girls were really happy to have a day outside the house…without their parents! since it is too hot here to camp, there was a smal campeonata, in lambayeque that i took the young women to. we played volleyball and soccer in the morning and they were able to get to know other young women in the department of lambayeque. it was a pretty small turnout, about 10 girls in total, since my district only include the pueblos, BUT it still was a lot of fun!

my first counselor, andrea, has the most adorable 1-year-old daughter. andrea is 19 and a recent convert to the church, and she is such a natural at connecting with the girls.
since the activity ended earlier than we had all planned, and it was ridiculously hot outside, i treated the girls to some raspadillas. basically, snowcones with homemade syrups and the shaved ice is done by hand from blocks of ice.
