Mexico City-Mission President Seminar






8/19-22,2009 Our last...and a wonderful experience for all. We stayed in a Marriot Hotel de Polanco downtown MexCty. The weather was comfortable and inaddition to training from our dear Apostle, Elder Christofferson; we were also taught by Elder Walter Gonzalez. We attended the temple together on Friday morning and then spent the afternoon exploring the City of the Gods, Teotihuacan. The Pyramid of the Sun is the 3rd largest pyramid in the world and we really had no intention of climbing it...but once we were there...it just called our name and up we went. Pres. & Hna Johnstun from Culiacan are our dear friends...we were glad to spend the day together in high adventure. Bob did a little Sun worshipping after he arrived at the top. The group picture was taken of our generation after the seminar was over and we were quite sober thinking of the special blessings we have shared as we've been spiritually fed by an Apostle of the Lord, one of the Seven Presidents of the Seventy and our own Area Presidency. Our hearts are full of gratitude for this special occasion that allows us to come together.

First of all, that is amazing that you could climb to the top of that pyramid. It looks simply beautiful. Your group of leaders there look like wonderful leaders. You must love serving with them.

What an amazing time you have had! I love that you climbed the pyramid. Reminds me of our visit to ruins in the Cancun area, only no topless jeep.
