The gentlemen on the left and right were the first converts in the Dominican Republic. Wonderful faithful people!
Some recent converts.
Party hearty and eat well.....the food.....oh yum....don't get me started!
Left to right-faithful stalwarts, the R.S. Pres, her husband, the former branch pres., the oldest member of the branch, faithfully attending at age 93 and his wife, taking care of his needs.
Oops, there's me-we were making Christmas trees out of ice cream cones. Chaotic but fun. (did I mention I serve in the Primary pres. in my ward too?) These are my little buddies. SO SO CUTE!
Singing their little hearts out-Jingle Bells (in English-LOL) trying to persuade Santa to come see them.
WOW! He snuck up behind them! Santa was hilarious. He even spoke SPANISH!
How is it going these days? Well, I understand at least 1/2 to 3/4 of what is going on now-depending upon who is speaking-I can hold a fairly coherent conversation-I was even asked to pray last Sunday in a very large group (200) which scared me spitless-but I managed to do it (I pray like a five year old in Spanish!)
But I still love it.
