Autlan Branch Conference 4-23-17


We had such a wonderful day Sunday traveling to and meeting with the saints in Autlan for their branch conference.
We left early and dropped by Barra de Navidad to pick up zone leaders, Elder Long and Elder Rodriguez to come with us.  What a great day we had together. Here are some pictures of our drive there and back, and with the sweet members there in Autlan.

The gorgeous ocean midst early Sunday morning.


The sun just peeking out


Banana trees.  They tuck the fruit into those blue bags,
sometimes wrapping them in newspaper
to protect them as they finish growing.



Gorgeous Cathedral entering Barra de Navidad


Interesting sights and sounds and smells along our way!













President Clayton took this panoramic photo.
of the congregation, a little skewed, but he got everyone in.


My regular picture of each side of the congregation.


The Branch President standing with his son to the left.


Three impressive young men.
Two sang in the choir, all three were 
well dressed and polite and most impressive...
seriously preparing for their missions.



On our way home.  We couldn't resist this old farmer
with his three pack mules loaded up.





These are the zone leaders serving in Manzanillo
at this time,  Elder Rodriguez and Elder Long

They live in Barra de Navidad.
The Barra de Navidad branch meets in Cihuatlan
in the House of Prayer there.





These are dedicated leaders. We are proud of them.


We made quite a few stops today to see members, and places.
This small Le Huerta group meets in this members 
home each Sunday



President Clayton couldn't resist this handsome guy.
He came right over to President.


 who fed him the rest of his apple.
