Promise made to Quito Ecuador by President Kimball

We went to the Panecillo yesterday as a Sr. Missionary Group and Office Assistants and after touring around we found a grassy area that overlooked the South end of the Quito valley. It is a hill in the middle of Quito, Ecuador with the Panecillo or special Angel standing on top and looking over the city. We sat down and Hermana G. read this event and then we bore our testimonies. It was a very special day for us and so we wanted to share it with all of you.

Mas Fotos!

Here are more photos looking down from the Panceillo on Quito as well as photos of Banos which is at the foot of Tungerhaua the most active volcano in Ecuador. The meat that Elder Ward is eating is Kwee which is Guinee Pig. This is a treat here in Ecuador. Also, a man pulling taffy. Two indigenous women walking down the street, Note how they plant crops right up the sides of the mountains.
