My Mission Mini Van

There are not many women drivers here in Trujillo. And there are definitely no blond women drivers in Trujillo with a mob of white shirted Elders and long skirted Sisters packed in a red mini van...
One of a Kind... I Love It!

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon (Red Mini Van) that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. (Elders to Baptisms)
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

Marjorie Pay Hinckley .. (I love her... this is one of my favorites)
