"Oldies" leaving

Some of our favorite missionaries ready to leave for home after a great dinner with President and Hermana Avila.  We will sure miss them but wish them a wonderful life and thank them for all the hard work they have done over the past two years.

A trip South checking the pensiones

Elder Boisado, missionary in charge of pensiones, Elder Packer and Hermana Packer had to take a trip down to Villa Mercedes and San Luis to check the missionaries living environments, install water filters, install smoke detectors and for Hermana Packer, give tuberculosis test to a missionary who had been exposed to TB.  These are some pictures we took along the way. 
This cute little house is the LDS Church for this area, it's way out in the country and we only have two missionaries living here, Elder Moon and Elder Marquez.  One of the better pench's.
