This month we have traveled to the Missionaries to conduct Presidents interviews with each Missionary. We have traveled to every area where we have Missionaries. We figure that 60% of our Missionaries we have to access by plane. We rent a car then drive for hours. We enjoy seeing out Missionaries in their areas, attending Branches and giving firesides. It is a blessed experience to be with these faithful Saints! We have spent 14 days in the past 4 weeks out of the Mission Home.

Feeding the Monkeys in Dourados! You can feed the monkeys here. When you call them, literally the trees start to rustle and monkeys come from everywhere. YES, monkeys really do eat bananas! Here they will come right up and take the banana out of your hand! What a fun experience.
We were invited to their Branch Party - A fun day was had by all! These people here are beautiful! We love to come to their Branch. Caceres is appx a 2 1/2 hr drive from Cuiaba Interesting to note that people here do not own cars. To go to the activity a Bus was used to Taxi everyone there and back (appx 100 people)
