Before I started this blog, I had already made several trips to various missions. I was too busy keeping up with each day's work to add these early photos and poems once the blog was begun. Now, almost a year later, I am working on the manuscript again and trying to reconstruct some of the materials. So here they are - late, but you know what? Nothing has changed. The Missions are still there, and I bet they still look a lot like this. And the Ancestors are still waiting.
