An UNEXPECTED get away.....




Saturday we had scheduled the quarterly Consejo de Coordinación in Guanajuato, my favorite city. President asked that I attend to take pictures and do whatever...The Assts were invited and expected to attend...but Saturday baptisms were critical to the success of our mission and even though they had baptized on Friday they still had lots of loose ends to finalize before the week's work was over. President Cox assured them that Heavenly Father would bless them as they were obedient and served as they were needed. After the opening session of the consejo it became obvious that the Assts were not needed for the rest of the meeting. We had 2 1/2 hours to wait til President would be ready. So what should we do? Guanajuato, here we come. We visited the Hacienda de Cochero first, next the Templo de San Cayetano and on to the minas de San Ramon and finishing with a quick tour of the Centro. It was a beautiful day and an UNEXPECTED get away for all of us. They are a good-looking group of Assts, don't you think? Elders Wille, Escobar and Robles.

Oh my! Handsome missionaries indeed! Do you think you could save a few of those Elders for Becca when she is old enough? She will be 16 in November...

Love the photos. It reminds me of that 400 year old church we went to on our first visit to Mexico - you remember - the one with the bleeding statues. Remember how awful the car ride was? And the nasty bananna cream pie that was supposed to be so worth the drive? I bet you are smiling as you think of this...
