Early Sunday morning we headed out to attend church in Corozal (two hours north on the Mexican border) Before we left, we read on the weather app that heavy rain fall was in the forecast. Although we had storm clouds all along the way, we were happy to get only a few drizzles here and there. As we pulled into Corozal, we were taken back at the beautiful view of the gray rain clouds against the coral green Caribbean Sea.
As we drove home from church, we took these pictures with Sister Arteaga and Sister Kendall at the Santa Rita ruins that are located in town on a residential street.
On Monday we had a preparation day treat as we took the Orange Walk Elders Reyes and Barlow to the Altun Ha archeological site. A feeling of reverence encompasses these ancient cities as we imagine the inhabitants here and their way of life.
It's always a pleasure to host guests in our home. Brother Justice from Guatemala was here on an assignment from the church. We enjoyed getting to know him. He and his wife joined our church over 40 years ago in Puerto Rico. This came after searching for Jesus Christ's true church that taught gospel principles that have been restored to the earth.
Yep, even missionary houses have break-downs at times. Here our skilled Belizean plumbers get us going, or at least showering, once again.
The following videos are ones that I showed to friends we visited this week. They both have powerful messages. The first one is about our Savior's love as He wants to forgive.

The mission of Jesus Christ was to atone of our sins and provide a way to repent and be forgiven.

I snapped and sent this picture of the view out my front door to my sister-in-law, Lynn, after she sent me a video of the snow fall they received in Salt Lake City, Utah on Thursday morning. I told her that yes, it is beautiful here in Belize, but the photo doesn't show the humidity!
