On the way home, we drove past the new mission home that is being built in Santa Lucita, close to Tarlac where the new mission office will be. This move will not take place until the the end of this year after we return home. To get to Santa Lucita from the north side of the mission, you can not take the expressway . . there is not an exit for Santa Lucita going south! (There is one if you are going north on the expressway.) So the president has found a way to get there . . . taking a dirt road through the sugar can fields.

The new mission home is on golf course, but the area only has two or three other homes there. The new mission home will be beautiful and bigger than the current one. The mission office will be in the Tarlac Stake Center which is about a 30 minute drive.
