Working Hard in Panama!

This week Hunter didn't have any photos.  He said the only one was a picture that he took of a huge spider that was in their taxi!  (No he didn't send it).

Last week Elder Duncan from the Seventy visited the Panama mission.  He held a zone conference and that meant a picture from the Mission President's wife on her blog! Thank Sister Carmack!!

I think we need to talk to Elder Meine about his "picture" face!! (with his good buddy Elder Berg)

Goodbyes and Hellos

Today marks 7 months that Elder Meine has been gone from home, out serving the Lord.  He said goodbye to his friends in Torrijos Carter last week and embarked on a new chapter in his mission.  His new area is Vista Alegre.  First he sent a lot of goodbye photos from Torrijos Carter.

A family of investigators that I found! They love me to death, especially little Johan David. They're sad that I had to go, but they want me to come visit as soon and as often as I can! 

Johann David

Aroli!  My little punk friend!!

Elder Berg and Hermana Caldas

Hermana Bean, probably the coolest gringa you'll find in Panama

Hermana Johnson

Hermana Romagoza came to visit the day before changes

Hermano Jorge's wife kept trying to hug me and it was weird. I pulled a classic hover hand to try and avoid it. Also Jorge was really drunk.

She made me a cool necklace with my name on it!!
She wants to get baptized, but needs to finish the super long Panamanian marriage process first

And now he has a few pictures of his new home.  He actually was excited to report that he has grass, some random chickens that wander around and a lot less garbage!

Me and little Michelle! She is the daughter of one of the families that feeds us.  She thinks that everyone in the world is 12! When you ask her what time it is, it's either 7 or 11!!  Haha!

The bishop's son wanted to be a missionary for the day!
