Church in Tamazula 3-26-17

We have had a wonderful day today. We traveled to Tamazula for their Branch Conference.  There were 35 there today, including the Guzman District President, President Alcaraz and his counselor President Vazquez. Tamazula is serving as a group for right now, with a young returned missionary as their group leader.  We always love coming to Tamazula, I love their second floor House of Prayer, with the windows opened wide and the fans blowing on high, and hearing the traffic below. I love these faithful saints.  It is truly an experience, and today we once again thoroughly enjoyed worshiping together. After our meeting, we took a quick picture outside the House of Prayer.  Sister Alcatraz and their daughter Paloma are to my right, President Alcatraz their younger daughter, Kate in front and President Vazquez are to President Clayton's left.

We can never quite get enough of our marvelous missionaries!!!!
We love Elder Sime and Elder Vargas serving in Tamazula right now.

After church, President Clayton and I drove in and 
around Tamazula.  It was such a gorgeous
day and we could not believe how 
beautiful everything was.  The flowering trees 
and bushes were stunning!   I took a bazillion pictures!!!

the meat market

their competition 

There are lots of steep hills in Tamazula.
Steps like these are in and around every street.

I loved this sweet family walking home from the plaza

sugar cane piled high

curtains blowing out the window

large tubs used to fry their meat.

No joke,  look at how this truck is loaded 
and they are not finished!

probably my favorite picture of the day.
