Last trip with the Glaziers

Stewart and Sandra Glazier presided over the MTC (Missionary Training Center) in Santo Domingo for two years.  Their mission ended in January 2013.  Before they left we took one last Saturday get-away with them and the Mahons.  The Mahons are serving a mission working with the Young Single Adults and Institute program in Santo Domingo.  Here are a few of the pictures we took -

Leon along side of one of President Trujillo's limosines - Trujillo was an evil the dictator of the DR for almost thirty years.  Although he has been dead for over 40 years, we felt a very dark, evil feeling just looking at that car and realizing the terrible fear that so many people felt when they saw that car and devil inside it.
