(Minghui.org) Falun Dafa practitioners in Peru participated in a community event promoting physical fitness in Callao on August 19, 2017.

Situated 10 kilometers west of the capital city of Lima, the port of Callao is the largest seaport in Peru.

Reynaldo Encalada Tovar, the mayor of one of Callao's seven districts, attended to support the event. Practitioners met him and told him about Falun Dafa, explaining that it is an ancient spiritual practice that brings people both physical and mental well-being. The mayor said he hoped to see more Falun Dafa activities in the area.

A group of children attentively watched practitioners demonstrate the exercises and showed great interest in the Chinese words on the flyers. With the help of practitioners, they learned to say “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance,” which are the core principles of Falun Dafa, in Chinese.
