Senior Missionary Life

Tyler sent us a picture of him in front of a giant Messi poster in Argentina so I decided to send one back to him. This is just up the street from the office. We were on the way home from the beach so that explains my unusual missionary attire. 
Sister Heidenreich let us all come over to watch the BYU game at her apartment. I think these two snagged the best seats.
This was our largest gathering of senior missionaries at the mission home for Sunday dinner. The Bergers were heading to St. Thomas and the Larsens from St. Croix were in town. We now have senior couples on five islands not counting Puerto Rico. Here, we have the Porters doing self reliance, the Lees in the office (we were still awaiting their arrival in this picture), Sister H., the nurse, and the Wentzels doing MLS. Sister Allred who was doing self reliance has gone to the DR for two months to help out there. And then there's Elder Eakle, the car czar, and Sister Eakle, the real estate lady.
The father of our daughter in law, Kelly, was in town on his way to French Guiana. He flew overnight so that he could spend a few hours with us during the day before the rest of his team from work came in. He works for a satellite company that launches there. We enjoyed a really yummy Puerto Rican meal at a restaurant in Condado. 
Our friends from Bend, the Johnsons, were in town for a Sprint Convention. John helped Mark open a Sprint dealership in Bend. Now he owns 38 stores. 
We drove to El Yunque with the Johnsons and looked at the amazing views. I think this picture is where my blog cover picture was taken.

We had lunch in the country club of the resort where they were staying. 
This statue of the three kings is in Juana Diaz. We were there delivering some bunk beds to the sisters there. 
We drove to Fajardo to buy a ferry ticket to Vieques for next week so that we can exchange a car our there. 
This is the ferry terminal in Fajardo. I'm not too excited about riding the ferry to Vieques to just get a car. I want to go when I can stay overnight and go snorkeling. We won't be able to do that if the office elders are with us. 
Despite the daily rain, this rainbow in Fajardo is the first I've seen in Puerto Rico.
