Thanksgiving II: The People

We all loved our "authentic" Thanksgiving dinner in Peru. Here are our guests enjoying it.

Sister and Elder Goede, from Layton, are the Office Missionaries in charge of records and finances. They bought the pies and the rolls. (Notice the newly-painted walls in the background.)

Here are "our" elders who came: Elders Shiflett, Leiva, Flores, Davis, Ebert, and Gurel.

Elder Leiva (from Arequipa, Peru) and Elder Davis (from Texas) are the two assistants to the mission president; Elders Flores (from El Salvador) and Elder Ebert (from Sandy, Utah) are office elders, and Elder Shiflett (from Arizona) and Elder Gurel (from Texas) are the two missionaries who work in our ward here in the La Molina area of Lima.

Elder Davis ate so much that he said he couldn't eat dessert. But he ended up taking three pieces of pie anyway! (No, he didn't finish them.)

It looks like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving--even if you couldn't be with your family. Thanks for the phone call!

Looks like fun.

Do you know what city Elders Flores is from?
