This week in El Salvador...July 7-13

This week...
Monday, July 7
   Kelly's parents went to the airport for this 1:00 flight back home to Boston.  It has been a great week with Rich & Robin Baker.
We drove the missionaries to Price Smart and then to lunch at The Royal--our favorite Chinese place.   The Thompsons have not found one yet in Guatemala.  We had a great 4-day visit with President y Hna. Thompson.
We're off to a funeral. Just finished training of temple workers from 3;00=5:00. It's raining -- hard.
Back later to finish this post.
Hope you're having a great Sabbath Day.
We were at this funeral for 3 1/2 hours.  From 6:00-7:30 we were waiting for them to bring the casket to the funeral home.  At 7:30 the Bishop asked Walt if he would be the concluding speaker.  At 8:00 they started the service without the casket having arrived.
At 9:00 when the service finished, we went into the other room for the viewing of Hna. Calderon who had passed away at 1:00 a.m. Sunday morning, July 13.
So I hope to finish this post in the next day or two.
We have no shift at the temple on Tuesday.

We spoke this morning at the Ayutuxtepeque Ward.  Try to say that fast.  We left at 8:20, returned at 12:45 noon.
Daniel and Kelly had the potatoes all ready to go with the saucy pork chops we had cooking in the crock pot when we got back so we could eat in time to leave for the temple at 2:15.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true.
Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer for the whole world.
Thank heavens for restored temple priesthood ordinances that bind families for eternity.
 Of this we testify. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Walt and Eileen Petersen - San Salvador, El Salvador
