Visit to the Convent de Ocopa with church members

We were able to take a field trip to the convent of Ocopa. This place has much of the history of the first missionaries who came to minister to the Amazon and was met with hostile Indians. A museum inside provided a lot of insight of the culture and customs of Peru (from stuffed animals to ancient artifacts. It was a blessing to bring with us two of our church members (Eva and Bety). 

 The cemetery had tombs from the 1800's as we tried looking for the oldest and most recent dates.
