We first stopped in Tecoman and met Elders Fuimaono, Gaona,Valdez and Omana at the OXOX store with a member. It was so hot and muggy, but I am always amazed at their smiles and great attitudes. They were each holding their Book of Mormon in their hands, in the 4 finger power hold!
Tecoman had weathered the storm and these Elders were busy and engaged.
I love this chart :)
that's right... the dishes were all done nicely :)
ok..... this fridge was pretty stark!
They told me they were going shopping later that afternoon.
beds made, check.
seriously..... it's just sitting there in the backyard
the laundry room (mothers, close your eyes)
they are so unfazed...
I love these Elders!
Preach as Champions Today!
the sign above their front door :)
I love this book mark
let's just take a closer look at that book mark...
I love it!
Out on their front porch area
You can see that the storm had blown in, breaking lots of branches such.
The area had already been raked and swept up, and trucks were coming
along, gathering it all up
their little green house on the corner
I love this little swing in the front yard of the house next door
The next day,we stopped in to see Elder Albrechsen and Elder Saldana's apartment in Vallarta.
It was spotless :) and it was good to visit with them for a few minutes.
Upstairs and along the walkway to their front door
President checking out their area map
Their study area
wow, that fridge was nice and clean
the view from their back porch, up the hill..
there were chickens and roosters on all sides
making all kinds of racket
ok... check out their fan, they get an A for creativity, and a C- for safety j/k
*notice Elder Albrechsen's bed is moved out from the wall, because
he is so tall, his feet hang off the mattress
let's just take a closer look at that contraption :)
love these Elders!
We headed up to San Blas and later that afternoon met
up with Elder Barfuss and Elder Montan. It was pouring
rain when we called them and they said, we'll meet
you at the church
This guy's checking things out from the roof
I cannot tell you how many people
we saw out on their bikes in the rain
Here come Elder Barfuss and Elder Montan
they are happy and just drenched !
We visited for a few minutes and then took them to
their next appointment.. down this street
When I said it doesn't look like anybody is home
they said, they may not be.. but out they went!
We had tried and tried to call Elder Allen and Elder Sosa. As we were driving back to the highway to
head home, we passed an OXOX station, and there in the parking lot, were these two Elders,
soaking wet from the rain, drinking hot chocolate. They had been in an appointment
and were just then getting our messages. What great Elders!
