Peru: Practitioners Introduce Falun Gong in Arequipa (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) Falun Gong practitioners from Lima, Peru held activities to introduce Falun Gong in Arequipa from October 15-20, 2009.
After riding a bus for sixteen hours, the practitioners arrived in Arequipa, "The White City." They distributed informational brochures on the Plaza des Armas. People were fascinated by the words "Truthfulness, Compassion, Tolerance" on the practitioners' T-shirts and asked practitioners for brochures. It was more busy than usual on Plaza des Armas because of religious activities in Arequipa and surrounding areas. The brochures went quickly.
On top of a tour bus, practitioners spread the news of Falun Dafa to people throughout the city and tourists from all over the world.
