My Missionaries

Here is Archie again. What a great and wonderful friend to all missionaries. Here Archie, Elders Corbitt, Southwick, Hadley and Keller are singing "Amigo para Siempre" (Friends for Always)
Archie made us dinner again. He fed all of us in this picture. Seated: Hermana Lund, President and Hermana Hinckley, Hermana Hadley, me. Next row: Hermana Fuentes, Elder Corbitt, Elder Southwick, Archie, Delwyn, Elder Hansen, Hermana Johns, Hermana Strickland, Elder Keller. Top: Elder Lund, Elder Hadley, Elder Hadley, and Elder Lloyd
This is what he fed us. A chicken stew, egg rolls, a noodle dish, and rice for dessert we had a cake roll. Archie made it all and it was sooooo very good. I learned how to make the noodle dish because I love it so much.

We were out on the streets before Christmas so we are showing you the lights by our piso.
You can't see them very well, but these are above the street all up and down.
These were above the streets on another street.
The Ayudantes (Assistance) Elder Keller on top of Elder Southwick. They were decorating the tree in the office.
We cleaned the Elders piso, with their help too. This is Elder Crofts. After we cleaned the piso, we had lunch together.
Here are the rest of them. Elder McKinnon, Elder Oldroyd, Elder Crofts, Elder Keller, and us. These were a group of Elders that I loved also. They were so fun to be around and they were great missionaries.

Hermana Roerig with us. She was a wonderful Sister and one of the best Missionaries.
We had these Hermana's over for dinner one time. Hermana Roerig, Fuentes, Johns, Us, Stosich and Snow. Hermana Johns, Stosich and Snow came home the same time we did. Great missionaries.

Thanksgiving in the Mission Home

We are enjoying our dinner. It really tasted like home. From the left it is Elder Parry, Elder Keller (you can't see him) Elder and Hermana Lund. Janey Hardy and her mom Emily. Hermana Hinckley, President. The Assistance are there some place but you can't see them. Then Elder and Hermana Haldey, Delwyn's hands, Elder Corbitt and Elder Hadley.
Our buffet table before we started to eat. It was so good and we made good use of the food.
Delwyn stirring the gravy. I didn't want it to burn. He did a good job.

Tossa del Mar

One day the water was off at the Mission Office and Mission Home, so President decided we should take a P-Day. So President and Hermana Hinckley took us to Tossa del Mar. It is a beautiful place north of Barcelona on the Sea. I got the pictures in backwards, so you have to go to the bottom to see the Fort on the hill. All of these pictures are taken from the inside of that Fort except this one and it is a shopping place where you could find anything you wanted for souvenirs. I wanted to buy some jewelry but I didn't know what I'd do with it at the time. This picture is of a local Church.

We went out to this pretty edge of the hill and had our pictures taken. It was a pretty day. Kind of cool, but not bad.
This was one of the yards up there and this was a big one. Most of the places didn't even have a yard. Everything is so well kept for being as old as it was.
Here is someones yard. I thought it was really pretty. Their home is right next to the walk way where everyone that goes there goes buy. I don't think I'd like that so much.
You can see how close all the houses are. Also the laundry hanging out to dry. That is close quarters, I'd say.
President and Hermana Hinckley along the walk way.
More of the houses and their yards. I thought that the trees were pretty keeping the sun off the house and patio.
We had lunch overlooking the sea and this is what it looked like as we walked away from our lunch place. The Hinckley's had a special lunch place overlooking the see with a round rock table and rock chairs. It was very fun to be there and listen to President and his stories about everything.
I'm not sure if this was part of a Church or just the fort. It is just old and interesting to me.
This is overlooking the Sea. It was so blue and calm. Perfect day to take a P-Day and have fun with great people.
On the hill just across from where the Fort is you can see all these pisos people rent out to tourists. It is just a quiet and peaceful place to be. President said it is one of his favorite because it is so quiet.
Here is the Fort as you look up at it from where we parked our car. It doesn't look like all those buildings could be in it, but they are. A lot of them are to the right side and you can't see them from here.
