On Monday, after an early 6 a.m. flight from Salt Lake City, change of planes in Dallas, we were happy to make it to Belize!
We were picked up from the airport by the two other senior missionary couples serving in Belize - Elder and Sister Flake, from Hobble Creek Canyon, UT, and Elder and Sister Adams, from Farmington, UT. It was great to see their smiling faces as we emerged from Customs.
On Thursday, we had attended a another meeting for district leaders, also via Skype.
Throughout the week we were able to tour much of the country of Belize to the north and west, seeing the chapels for the 12 branches, and meeting some of the missionaries and members, and enjoying beautiful countryside.
We are thrilled to be here in Belize. The people are wonderful-- sweet, friendly, kind and very helpful. At church today, we met Saints who have strong testimonies of the gospel of Jesus Christ, who address challenges in their lives with faith. A group of Belizean Saints just returned last night from an 11-hour bus ride to the Mérida México Temple where a Belize City Branch couple was sealed.
