Visit from the Parents of Elder Richard Jones

This is a Uruguayan version of a BBQ. They build a fire on the elevated grates on the left hand side and as the wood burns down the coals fall through the grate at which time they are moved over to the area under the elevated grate on the right hand side. This is were the cooking takes place. The total process takes about 3 hours. It is very hot, smokey and time consuming. The meat cooks fine and tastes great once you finally get it done. You have to be careful not to run out of coals before your meat is cooked. It takes some practice and patience but it is kind of fun! Here we are preparing chicken for Elder Richard Jones and his parents that came to pick him up from the mission. This is the lunch we held for Elder Jones and his parents. Of course the Elders got to participate and enjoy the meal also. Left to Right, Janice Hegerhorst, Sandy Jones, Dr. Robert Jones, Elder Jones, Elder Delbar and Elder Caufield

While the Jones's were in Uruguay they visited many of the areas that Elder Jones served in. La Paloma was the last area he served. They visited some of the members in La Paloma. Here they are visiting Ruben Bica. Doctor Jones was able to help Ruben understand why and how to control his blood sugar for his diabetics. It has been a few weeks since the visit and he is doing a bit better. We hope it will continue!


  1. Thanks for sharing the pics. I'm sure it makes dad miss the gas BBQ at home, but I'm sure the flavor of the chicken is incredible. Looks like the jones were taken care of while they were visiting. Love you guys.

  2. looks like fun! Hey, I wanted to tell you the son of some good friends of ours is coming to Uruguay. He's in the MTC in Argentina now. His name is Jesse Barlow and he's from South Carolina. (Well, they lived in Renton when he was born). Maybe you'll get to see him.
