Puerto Rico San Juan

On September 14, 2013 I received my call to serve as a Mission Nurse Specialist in the Puerto Rico San Juan Mission for a period of 18 months. I am always up for a new adventure and look forward to sharing my journey with you.

More photos! The captions will tell the story.....

Elder Scott, a Samoan from Hawaii - He provided entertainment and decorations for a Toa Baja Stake Luau

Elder Scott even did a fire dance outside after the dinner/program!

Just proof of how hard a Sr Mission is :o)  Elders Eakle/Wentzel watching BYU football at my apt -
we even had hot dogs/nachos for the 'tailgate' party!

One of our many Sun night dinners at the Mission Home

I forgot to mention - while we were finishing dinner, President Boucher received a call that Elder Cornish (Our area president) was on his way over to the Mission Home to visit.  We all sprang into action to get the table cleared and dishes washed before he came.  Elder Wentzel is king of the kitchen clean-up and gets the job done - with or without the rest of us!  By the time he arrived, we were all calmly chatting.  He answered questions re: the Church in Haiti and Cuba as well as what it would take to get a Temple in Puerto Rico - when the people are ready, a Temple will be built.......not build a Temple and then get the people ready!  Many rich blessings and friendships develop with Senior Missionaries.  I highly recommend it!
