The Lima Central Corps in Lima, Peru, led by Captains Alfredo and Carolina Márquez, celebrated national independence day, July 28, with authentic food, dance and music to thank God for 192 years of independence and all the blessings received.
The dances represented different regions of the country, and the performers connected them to Christian themes. Performers included junior and senior soldiers, home league members and Sunday school attendees.
Corps members then convened for a feast of Peruvian cuisine. Since the corps is made up of members from all over Peru, they were able to get a taste of each region of the country.
Over 150 people attended the event, many of whom were new to the corps.
