New Friends in Chile

Jennie on the bridge in Valdivia, her first mission city. Valdivia is near the Pacific ocean with lots on inland waterways, fishing and tourist boats

A couple months later in April 2008 Jen had her first transfer to a new city -- Panguipulli on the the lake -- with a snow covered volcano in the back ground.

We hear they make some pretty good pies in Panguipulli ...

Welcome to Panguipulli - with a missionary beach house on the lake and a snow capped volcano for a backdrop. One of prettiest places in the world - with many wonderful families who welcomed missionaries from around the world ...

The Gangstas of Valdivia -- Hna Wood and Hna Moemai. Talofa from Samoa and Aloha from Hauula. ;- ) How did you two ever meet up in Chile !!!

Panguipulli picnic - with wonderful friends and the world's best watermelon for dessert !

Zone Conference with our Mission President and his wife ... in Osorno, Chile. About a two hour bus ride south of Valdivia.

Baptism day -- one of many joyful family photos traditionally taken in front of the painting of Jesus being baptized by John in the river Jordan.

About Me

My photo
First-time mom who gets very little done around the house because she just likes staring at her baby. Married to a pastry chef by day and gamer by night (don't worry they are the same man). Trying the blog world out to keep Grandma and Grandpa in the loop while they enjoy their retirement in the sun. Hoping it will also keep me connected with amazing friends and family that are spread all around the various places I've lived in my search to find the "real life" I now enjoy in my small town. My secret career dream is to own a clothing restoration company. You can check out my other blog "Oh This Old Thing" to see my latest projects.
