Squalos - Women's Conference - Los Cedros - FHE


Saturday afternoon we went to Squalos for lunch with Bill and Sandy Hartman.  We had a wonderful time together.

Saturday Night was the General Women's Conference.  I am so thankful for modern technology that makes it easy for us to watch and be a part of the conference.  It was a wonderful conference.  I especially liked President Uchdorf's message of having Faith.  I felt the spirit touch my heart as he spoke

Early Saturday morning, a big bus brought a bunch of members to the temple.  They were here all day participating in doing work for those who have passed on.  

While I was listening to the conference, Wayne went out to say goodbye as they loaded up and got ready to leave.

They had to wait for some people who were in Salavery to get back.  They were very late leaving.  They had an 8 hour bus ride to get home.

They finally headed out about 8:30 pm.

For our Sunday meetings, we decided to go to Los Cedros.  The meeting started at 10:30 am.  We arrived almost 30 minutes early.  President and Sister Marble were in the meeting.  We enjoyed the meeting.  There are a lot of temple workers in this ward and there are a lot who attend the temple from this ward, it was fun to see all of them.  I took these pictures.

This is just a cute little guy who sat by us.

 Diego is the engineer at the temple.  This is his little girl.

This is the family of Carlos Rodreguiz.  Carlos is the assistant recorder in the temple.

Diego is one of the temple engineers.  This is his mother in law. She is also Berta Briones sister.  Who is Berta Briones?  She served in Peru and was in Wayne's district when he was here 40 years ago.  After Berta finished her mission, she married Belisario Benites, who also served a mission in Peru.  Wayne was able to attend their wedding here in Trujillo 40 years ago. This was a fun connection to make.  Funny thing is that we see Diego and talk to him a lot and didn't know he is related to Berta.  It's such a small world.  Berta is coming to Trujillo in October.  Such a small world.

She works in the temple temple and she taught the Gospel Doctrine lesson.  I don't know her name.

We had a wonderful Sunday and enjoyed the afternoon relaxing.

On Monday, we went to Tottus in the morning to get a few groceries and we went to lunch at Chili's to have our usual Chicken Fried Chicken with Frozen Lemonade with Granadina.  We enjoyed the afternoon.  Later that night, we went to FHE with the couple missionaries.  Brother Guevara gave the session about Loving One Another.  We played a spin the bottle game where if the bottle landed pointing to you, you had to do a talent or stand as a statue and let those playing form the way to stand.  Sister Guevara made chocolate for our treat.  They were delicious.
