Mission President's Seminar

Mission President's Seminar
August 2009--Mexico City, Mexico
In August of 2009 we had the opportunity to attend the annual Mission President's seminar in Mexico City. In attendance were all 21 of the Mission Presidents serving in Mexico. Conducting the seminar was our new Area President, Elder Daniel Johnson and his counselors Elder De Hoyas and Elder Tenorio. Presiding were Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and Elder Walter Gonzalez of the Seventy. It was a spiritual feast and a great time to meet the new presidents and their wives and feel of their enthusiasm for the work.
We took a short walk from our hotel to watch the Voladores de Papantla in Chapultepec Parque.
Here they are flying!

We had the privilege of attending the Temple in Mexico City and then posed for a group picture
in the Visitor's Center. Here is a photo of our new area presidency with Elders Christofferson and Gonzalez with their wives. (Hna. Gonzalez was not present)

We had an afternoon to be tourists while there. Our choice was to visit the famous Museo Nacional de Antrophogia and then tour the downtown area by tour bus. It was all very interesting and beautiful.

Bruce shares his passion for running with this statue of one of the famous Tarahumara Indians who are famous for having the stamina to run for very long distances.

Mexico City was designed by Napoleon and patterned after Paris with large boulevards and lots of beautiful statues.

We celebrated our 36th anniversary with a beautiful cake and well wishes presented to us by the other presidents at lunch on our final day.
