A Good Adventure...

Buenaventura = a Good (buena) Adventure (aventura)
and we are never disappointed!

On Saturday, September 21
we left Cali with President and Sister Trochez
and traveled through the mountains

The first thing that happened on our adventure was...
our youngest daughter, Marcie, called us
to say that she had just gotten engaged!
(it was an adventure just trying to Face Time in the mountains...
after a few dropped calls we had the full story and saw the sparkly ring!

The second good adventure was...
driving to the river.  Here are a few of the sites along the way.

 Arriving and getting ready...

 Elder Rivadeneira on the violin!
 Heading down into the water

 Giving final instructions

 The newest members of the Buenaventura Branch!
with those who performed their baptisms.
This was the most reverant baptism I have ever attended.
You could hear the birds in the trees.
There was a very special spirit with us during each of the 7 baptisms.

 The third good adventure was...
Going to dinner with the missionaries and mission presidency!

 The fourth good adventure was...
Meeting for church on Sunday with the good
Saints of the Buenaventura Branch!

The Colombia Cali Mission Presidency
Pres & Sister Trochez, The Princes, Pres & Sister Garcia

It was a "Good Adventure" weekend in Buenaventura!
We are Blessed!

The mountainside of Terron Colorado!
I love this colorful mountain!
