They are the best.....



Okay, I am still learning about blogging. I have had some wonderful experiences this week...but no camera. How bad am I. I spoke at a Relief Society Visiting Teaching Conference in Benito Juarez Stake....about "Manos Fuertes y Corazones Amorosos". The hermanas had prepared a perfect program....special musical number, handouts, dinner and even a beautiful flower arrangement for me to take home. It was impressive...I should have had my camera. We interviewed about 1/2 of our missionaries....and they are all willing to poise for a photo...but I had no camera; I've enjoyed some beautiful early morning walks this week...but no camera....and life just keeps passing me by. Last night was the last opportunity for the week´s blog. I mentioned to our office missionaries my dilemna and they knew exactly the poise I needed. Mind you, Elder Checketts, our fearless leader leads the way. At one time immediately below this second story ledge...there was a swimming pool, half outside and half inside the house. I wonder how many missionaries have actually jumped? I also wonder if that is why the pool area was filled in with dirt before we arrived...
Poising for this picture are Elders Mendoza, Moreno, Wille, Checketts and Robledo. They really are the best.

Hi there--sounds like another action packed week. Bec, you were always the best for V.T. conferences. How do you have time for so many things going on? The Elder's pose is pretty authentic--thought they were infor the swim.

I'm with you - don't always have the camera when I wish I did. I love reading your posts and having a small peek at you life in the mission home in Leon. You have always been such a hospitable, friendly and warm person, with an outstanding and marvelous testimony - perfect qualities for a "mission mom." I can't believe it has already been a YEAR!
