A Trip to Joyas

On December 2 were were able to visit as a district some ancient ruins at a place called Joyas. The ruins were discovered by accident when a company was undergoing a construction project and hit into the ruins. As we sat down as a district and discussed the people who had lived here in ancient times, the Book of Mormon took on a whole new meaning for me. The Spirit was incredibly strong--as we teach the descendants of the very people who we read about in the Book of Mormon, we can feel their spirits "crying from the dust."
Here is a little taste of the beautiful nature of El Salvador.
This is our district standing just outside the ruins.
Then two days later we had an unexpected treat: President Lopez had all the zones where every area had had a baptism come to a huge lunch at this really great Chinese restaurant. I was able to see everyone from Sonsonate which was so exciting for us all. We love to get together and swap stories and strengthen one another.
