Wednesday, January 19, 2011

It was another busy and full day for us. First we were off to Juan Dolio Beach which is about 30 miles east of Santo Domingo. When we got there we were sad to discover that the heavy surf had churned up a lot of silt and there was no visibility for snorkeling.

In spite of the murky water we still had fun swimming in the surf and playing in the sand. Hna. Johnson walked the beach and managed to find a lot of pretty seashells. We had a lot of fun.

After the beach, we went out for lunch at “El Mesón” restaurant. It is right across the street for Juan Dolio Beach and it is one of our favorite places to eat. We’ve never been disappointed with anything we’ve eaten there. The service is very good, the servings are big and we went away stuffed.

Back at our apartment this afternoon Hna. Johnson and I started packing. We also did laundry loads; there is simply a ton of things to get done before tomorrow.

This evening we went to the Los Arroyos Branch and attended their “Noche de Amistad” (Fellowshipping night). Los Arroyos is where Hna. Johnson and I have been assigned to attend and work for the past 10 months. I’ve been teaching the Elders Quorum and Hna. Johnson has been the Primary Nursery Leader.

Tonight’s program at Los Arroyos was a tribute to Hna. Johnson and I. All of the Branch leader from the Br. Pres, on down, lavished us with praise. I don’t know if we deserved it but for sure they have really appreciated our service in the Branch. The feeling is mutual; we really love the members in the Branch.

Our last stop was at the Mission Office on our way home. The AP’s had a going away present to give us. The Elders and Hermanas of the mission all wrote us a thank you note on some very large cards. It was very nice.
