One of the things that the Area Presidency suggested we do as soon as possible was to have a dinner and invite the Stake/District Presidents and their wives from our mission. Presidente meets with the Presidents on a regular basis, but, for us both, it was a pleasure to meet their wives, as well. There are 8 stake presidents and 2 district presidents, however, not all of them were available tonight.
One of the perks of being a mission president’s wife is all the help that is available for an evening like this. The Assistants served. Two sisters from Gonzalez Catan cooked. Elder Rook and Elder Abarca helped out in the kitchen to be nice, but the real blessing of having them here was to be able to listen to their testimonies and experiences
and Elder Rook’s piano playing. He can and does make primary songs sound like concert quality compositions. Of course, he has his own original compositions and he shared my favorite, The Storm.
Good company, good food, good service, good music.
Fabulous evening in la casa de mision!
