Branch Conference inTecuala



We had a glorious drive to Tecuala for our Branch Conference Sunday morning.
It is such a pretty drive!




Harvesting the sugar cane.
We see truck after truck piled high! 


Here is the little House of Prayer in Tecuala


The Primary children


They have a nice group of young women and 
several young men, one
who passed the Sacrament


This good brother standing by the font blessed the 
sacrament with Elder Galindo today

This large room is where we met for 
Sacrament meeting and our Gospel Doctrine class



The view from the front door way inside

Elder Galindo teaching Gospel Doctrine


Peeking just outside the front door to the left,
I spied this mother hen and her chicks right
behind the car, getting ready to cross the road.


so... just why did the chicken cross the road?


no se



The Tecuala Branch


President Clayton, with Branch President Segundo


With the Santiago District Presidency 


We were so thrilled that the District Presidency 
brought their wives and families with them.
These women are such sweethearts and make
up the District Primary Presidency.

We dropped by to see the Elders apartment 
Elder Kotter ZL, Elder Price
Elder Manriquez ZL and Elder Galindo



Everything was nice and orderly


Let's just take a closer look.
That's right.. those eggs are right on top of the fridge. 






Looking through the screen window to the outside 
back porch with their large planning board





mothers... please note.  That's right, they will be
getting a new ironing board cover.
But, bless their hearts for faithfully ironing their shirts!

These two are wonderful Elders.  They are far away 
from the mission home, and in one of the hottest parts of 
our mission.  We are very proud of these two Elders!



 The building across the street from their apartment




ok, I loved seeing this burro just. right. there.



After our Tecuala Branch meeting, we drove to Acuponeta to meet up with faithful
Elder Mexquititla serving as Branch President of the Branch there.  Here he is outside
the House of Prayer in Acuponeta.  (I love this place!)


The front entryway

What a great day we had with these five Elders!
