Happy Mother's Day.....

Mother's Day? Yes, it was Mother's Day here in Costa Rica on Sunday. We celebrated with our branch members on Friday night by attending a dinner and dance at our church building. We extended our celebration by going to San Jose on Saturday to do some errands and visit some of our special friends, the Campos family. Most of you know that we visited Costa Rica two times previous to us receiving our mission call to serve here. We met Obispo (Bishop) Campos on our first visit here and we have remained friends over the last few years. We were able to visit their family and attend their ward Mother's Day party last year while we were visiting San Jose. We decided to keep up the tradition and attend this year too. It was also wonderful to see Juan, Ana (his wife), and their two cute little kiddos. Hermana Munroe seated with the ladies as they waited to be served their dinner..... Hermana Munroe and Obispo Juan Campos. Juan is a VERY young Bishop and has become a strong leader of the church in the San Jose area. We are truly thankful to have met him and to have witnessed his dedication to the members of his ward. Elder Munroe and two of the ward members.....Elder Munroe and Juan....Hermana Munroe, Ana Campos, and an Hermana from the ward....The Campos kiddos! Thanks for inviting us to your ward party and Happy Mother's Day!
