Blog of the Month: An LDS Missionary Couple in Peru

One of the most colorful missionary blogs that I have encountered is Scott and Beverly Zimmerman's An LDS Missionary Couple in Peru. Culturally it is one of the best that I have read as they have dozens of pictures of Peruvian natives in colorful poses and describe cultural practices.

They describe in great detail their travels as well as an occasional baptism or two thrown in. On a four day trip to Lima they show pictures of the Peru Lima CTM which is some of the few pictures that I have found on a blog. On of my favorite posts is A Day of Mormon and Peruvian Culture which describes where members of ten branches got together for a big activity. It is again the spectacular photographs that make this an enjoyable post.

If you want to spend an enjoyable hour or two check out their blog. The photography is some the best I have encountered in a while.

Thanks for the "award" of Blog of the Month. We love doing our blog. Scott is the photographer (his main vice as a missionary) and Beverly is the text editor (she was a professor of technical writing at BYU before our mission).

The best part of our blog is the number of missionary moms who have written us--mostly to say hello and thank us for providing cultural information about Peru, but also to get information about the mission. We hope we can continue to be of service.
