130421 Beauty far Exceeding

I Nephi 11:8 ----and the Beauty thereof was far beyond, yea, exceeding of all Beauty

The highlight of the week was our overnight stay in Constanza and visit to “Salto Aguas Blancas” a waterfall high up on the mountain.  We needed our 4 wheel vehicle to make the trip.  The pictures do not do justice to what filled our eyes.  It looks like the Garden of Eden.  The land is more productive than any we have ever seen.  The family Rivera was our guide.  The mountains were covered with beautiful strawberry patches, carrots, onions, garlic, cabbage, peas, etc

This truck was on the same mountain road with us jammed with men in the back.

While in Constanza we ate dinner with the Rivera family and then visited the home of two young men who just accepted a mission call to Ecuador. 

Wallace trying a dish of goat meat. (It will probably be his last).

We had another meeting with the Military to discuss the hand pump project we are working on.

We were invited to the National Palace to attend an event of CONADIS during which there were a couple of beautiful musical numbers.  Instead of clap, everyone raised their hands and flutter their open palms.  It is the first time we have seen it.  It must be a Dominican custom.

Here is Edith teaching a small branch about the food project IN SPANISH!!  Isn’t she something?

  1. In Spanish. That's awesome! I had to pinch myself the day I had a conversation on Skype with my Mom in Spanish.
