Thanksgiving in Peru!

November 26, 2015

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!  There are so many things to be thankful for.  My list is big and much like everybody else's but this year added to that list is this wonderful experience of being temple missionaries. It has been a very great blessing. 

We had our Thanksgiving dinner at the home of our mission president. The Marler's are wonderful people. They are amazing as I watch only a tiny bit of what they do. I can always feel the spirit when I'm around them. They are so welcoming, warm, and happy to see us.  

The Marler's home for Thanksgiving lunch. The Marler's are on the left. 

These are the known as the Sister, Sisters.  They are sister missionaries who are really sisters. Sister Angell in the red, Sister Vaughn in the striped shirt. They work in the mission office so they were making sure all the food was ready to serve.  We had a traditional dinner. We even had green bean casserole, cranberries, pumpkin pie, and cherry pie, thanks to Sister Marler for bring the ingredients from the USA and the Fackrell's for making the pie. It was all delicious.  We had fun because we sat by the office Elders. They were great company. 

Elder Olson is from Smithfield. He helps with the emigration and travel stuff in the office. 

Elder Romero.  He works with all the emigration details too. 

Elder Croft. He is one of the assistants. 

Elder Marshall. He is an assistant. 

Elder Bond is an assistant until Nov. 30th his parents are coming to pick him up. We will miss him!

These are the deserts, delicious!

This is our temple matron, Sister Casos. She had to have seconds on the yummy green salad the office Elders made.

Thank you President and Sister Marler for your hospitality.
We had a great time!  
Now on to Christmas.
