Mark L. Williams was called to serve as the new president of the Peru Chiclayo Mission beginning in July, 2014.  President and Sister Williams will replace President Risso and Sister Risso who are originally from Uruguay.  President Risso was a very kind and wonderful Mission President.  The next three years under President Williams promise to be exciting and inspiring given the hastening of the Lord's work worldwide, especially among the great people of Peru.
