Why We Love Our Mission

Now, you may think that we only like being on a mission because we don't have to mow our lawn or shovel the snow.  Perhaps you may think that we like being on a mission because we don't have to repair our cars or fix up our home.  Although not having to do those things do add to the charm of a mission, the photos below show the real reason we love it here.
High School students in the country town of Baranca.

President Diaz (our district president), school principle,
Elder y Hermana Haws, the Humanitarian Missionaries who arranged to
 have book shelves made for this high school so the students had a place
 to put their books.  The students were so excited because their books were
no longer in piles on the floor.  They were so grateful.

Meeting a former missionary, "Elder" Bezzantine at the grocery store in La Vega.  He brought his son to his mission.  What a delight to meet them.  They were so kind and generous to us.  They even bought our groceries!
