At the beginning of summer, Elder Wakefield and his his assistant pastor, Bro. Mario went on a trip to visit a pastor in Oaxaca. I did not get to go on this trip, but got a kick out of the pictures and stories my grandpa told from their time there. I figured you all would as well!
|Rock slides are common - the people just remove the obstructing pieces and continue on|
|The drop off the side of these roads was thousands of feet down - so scary!!!!|
This is the pastor and his family - Elder Wakefield dedicated their baby daughter while he was there.

|The pastor's sister, Elder Wakefield and the coffee trees|
This is a coffee tree! These people make their own coffee and from what I heard it is delicious. When the little white flowers fall off, there's a little tiny green seed growing there - that is the bean! I thought that was really interesting!
The service was held in the pastor's home. One man received the baptism of the Holy Ghost!
|In the pueblos, the ladies wear skirts. The modern world hasn't reached them yet - it is neat to see.|
We look forward to seeing more of our brothers and sisters from Oaxaca in the future!
