|Mandatory missionary group picture|
It is unthinkable to have missionaries meet without taking a group picture. The one above is of the Lilo-an and Consolacion Zones with President and Sister Tanner, the Assistants to the President and an unnamed senior couple.

Technology is such a blessing and a curse. When it works it allows us to keep in touch with family and friends literally half a world away. When it doesn't it can be a trial of our patience and long suffering. On Wednesday (Thursday morning here) we had plans to watch as our grand daughter, Janica, received a proposal of marriage. We were given a heads-up about the planned time and place of proposal and were hoping to be there by Skype. Unfortunately, the internet service to the mission office has been up and down lately and Thursday morning was mostly down. We were able to connect just long enough to talk briefly with Janica and see the ring. Remember those rats and chewed phone lines that were mentioned earlier. We blame it on them.
