This is the Mijas International Branch that had a munch and mingle after sacrament meeting to say goodbye to President Matthew Brown and his wife Carmen and their baby, Elizabeth. These are mostly the active members of the branch with a few visitors also. They are such nice people, you can just love all of them. We had a nice potluck dinner at Bro Fred Riley's and his wife Bruna. We are just in front of the common swimming pool. We had a new Branch presidency sustained today. Elder Roy Hunt as the Branch President, Ralf Meyer 1st counselor from Germany and Augusto Padre from the Philippines, and Clerk Shaun Tyndale-Biscoe from England. You can see that it is definitely an international branch. We took the lady from Finland and her son with us out to the Riley's. She is definitely a nice lady and has grown up in the church. She will only be here until right before Christmas and then she will go back to Finland. We had a couple from Australia, a couple from Wales, and a couple from England visit the branch today, and we had a young man, who was taking the picture from Alaska visit today. A very diverse group. We love it here in Spain and we hope we will magnify our callings, both in the branch and as missionaries.
