El Otoño Maravilloso En Chile

The Terrys and the Eulitts having lunch at the famous Fabrica de Empanandas in San Felipe.
It is always nice to see the other Senior Missionaries, even if it is just for a few minutes.  The Arrellanos arrived here one week ahead of us.  They came out of District Class to receive the mail.
This Chilean rode by the Esmeralda Chapel when we were delivering mail.  Beautiful horse!
On our preparation day, we took the Funicular Tram up Cerro San Cristobal.
Carolina, Axel, and Vilma were confirmed on this Sunday.  Hector is also a new convert.
It is a joy to see our converts attend Church on Sunday.
Here are two beautiful missionaries happy to be in their new home.
Dad points to the red paint left by the drunk that hit the van.
We were glad the technical inspector discovered this damaged tire before we had an accident.
We often see Chileans pushing hand carts.
It was a blessing to find these jackets for our investigators in Patronato.  We found the store seconds before they closed.
We enjoyed visiting with the Taylors as we delivered the mail, and had lunch at the famous Fabrica de Empanadas in San Felipe.
This boulder rolled off the mountain, right in our path. 

GPS took us on this dirt road on our way TilTil.
Elders lining up for flu shot - ouch!

This family was on our tour.  We all enjoyed learning about them, and at the same time, we enjoyed teaching them some gospel principles.  Elder Wilson and Elder Waldron both asked our tour guide to stop at "Marco Polo."  "Marco Polo" was a popular restaurant among the missionaries way back 50 years ago.  Both had good memories of that restaurant.
This is Valparaiso at the harbor.  One of the principal ports in Chile.
This plaza is near the harbor in Valparaiso.  Notice the beautiful buildings.
This "Flower Clock" is a popular attraction in Viña Del Mar.
We did not have time to ride a carriage.
There are some beautiful hotels along the coast.
Elder Wilson worked in this area 45 years ago.
This is a popular vacation site.
Elder Waldron served in this area 50 years ago. 
This is another section of the coast.
