The Sanders Come to Santiago!

In January our good friends, Larry and Carol, went on an amazing cruise. The best part for us was that they had a layover in Santiago for a couple of days. We drove to Santiago on Sunday and spent the evening with President & Sister Cook of the Chile Santiago South Mission and President & Sister Barreiros of the Chile Santiago West Mission. It was so fun to visit with them and share ideas and stories. Larry and Carol got in at 7:00 a.m. on Monday morning and we were at the airport to meet them. They were with a great tour group and they invited us to spend the day with them. We rode a bus and saw all the highlights of Santiago City.

Kent was even the tour guide for a few minutes! To our surprise Mary Ellen Edmunds was on the tour as were Kent's cousin and her husband. It was so fun, but the best part was spending time with Larry and Carol. They were kind enough to bring us a suitcase loaded with all the essentials that you can't find here in Chile (chocolate chips, brown sugar, shortening, contact solution, medications for our missionaries, and a portable screen). Thanks to Brett and Cheyla for packing the bag for us. Thanks Larry and Carol for giving us a little taste of home. We love you.
