District conference in Nargana

Virginia with three of the many little friends who constantly came up to greet us.
Me with the Campos family and President Jamison of the Panama City Temple
Manuel Robinson, volunteer CES supervisor, in front of statue of his grandfather, known as the father of education in Nargana.
Elders Glazier and Corbett, full time missionaries on Nargana. Note the footwear.
Young ladies from Carti Tupile (I think) singing during cultural event.
Missionaries (posing as FBI) and member (Samuel) ham it up during cultural event.
Samuel "incarcerated" in bunker of the chapel plays on his guitar during cultural event. His son thought he was really in jail and started to cry!
Young people from Nargana act out scene from "A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief."
Samuel, escaped from jail, plays another guitar number. You can see and hear him play for real in his home in the short video below. (He wrote the song.)

Missionaries and Presidente Diaz (District president) arrive in "Captain Moroni" boat to take us to the airport Monday morning after district conference.
