We are giving a Thursday morning English lesson to the missionaries.  This is the San Pedro Zone.  They are showing us book one, which most missionaries have not yet completed.

Andrew knows what this is.  Sister Dibb is having a drink from a "package" of chocolate milk.  They bite off a corner and suck out the drink.  Even little two and three year old's do this.  You will see people all over the city walking with a drink hanging from the mouth.  It's like everybody having a binke to suck on.

This is our home theater.  At the foot of the bed we put a chair, a box on the chair, the computer on the box, and the speakers on the bed.  Hey, it works!

This is Elder Montes from Columbia.  We have spent a lot of time with him during our mission.  He always has a treat for us when we visit the mission office.  Right now, he is our District Leader.

Some of our Ward members who visited us this Sunday.  President Gonzales is in the Stake Presidency and is the director of the Institute in La Paz.  Sister Gonzales is our Ward Primary President.  They are both originally from Santa Cruz.

We wrote about this older sister (not Sister Dibb but the sister with the hat) in the newsletter.  She joined the Church in 1969.  She came with her granddaughter to our home on Sunday.  Her granddaughter served a mission in Peru and is one of the faithful young single adults in the Ward.  Unfortunately, there are very few young single adult men in the Stake who hold the priesthood.

As we have mentioned, Sister Dibb is teaching members to play the piano so they can play the hymns in the meetings.  This is Sister Gonzales being taught in the very specialized language of Spanglish.

Elder Hurtado who took our place as the mission membership secretary some months ago.  He is from Peru.

Brother and Sister Chavez also came on Sunday evening.  They are very faithful members.  He was the previous Bishop in our Ward.  He was bishop for eight years.  She is our shopper.  She knows where to buy everything.  In fact, she is the one who buys the chocolate chips for us so Elder Dibb can make his famous cookies for the members.

This is a very special picture for Sister Dibb.  She has always wanted to try on one of these hats and one of the shawls.  Looks like she could pass for one of the real lamanite generation.

Andrea and Erik came to learn the art of making the famous cookies.  She is a wonderful dancer and wants to attend BYU to get more dance experience and he is from Brasil and is here trying to play professional football (soccer).  They are now spending lots of time together and the way they talk with each other, there may be a wedding in the future.

The cookie mix is complete and ready for the oven.  They did a pretty good job.

.......and the finished product.  They are really good when warm.
