| This picture was posted on facebook, taken at the end of the conference. You can see Sister Nydegger, me, Mike and Sister Money's face in front of Mike and Sister Judy standing down the row with the long hair. The hall was pretty much full.|
President Jackson asked the Island missionaries to come up and sing "Armies of Helaman" during his talk. Valerie Mendoza from Los Cristianos took this photo of our Hermanas.
Sister Nydegger and Phillips from Los Cristianos spent Monday (p-day) with us. We went to lunch, played cards and they spent 2 hours in the streets that evening with sister Judy and Money. They split up and traded partners a few times. They had a goal to get 30 phone numbers and they achieved their goal. They returned home with more excitement than I have ever seen on missionaries, with lots of stories about the events and contacts of the night.
Last Sunday all the Tenerife missionaries and many of the members here took the ferry to Gran Canaria to attend the conference that made all of the Canary Islands a Stake. The sisters from Los Cristianos rode the bus up and stayed over with us for a few days. We got up bright and early and caught the ferry for the 3 hour ride. We were picked up by the Buhlers from the Old Mission Home and taken to the rented conference center for the historic meeting. Then the Buhlers invited us all to lunch at the OM Home. I carried 2 cakes, waiting to be frosted, to help her out. We had a great lunch and a nice visit with all of the missionaries and some other invited guests who served here previously when it was its own mission. Then we were taken back to the ferry, just at sunset, and had a 3 hour ride back. The missionaries sat outside on the deck and visited and we crashed in a seat. It was a wonderful day.
