I am so thrilled to hear about the upcoming reunion with President and Sister Glade. I would give anything to be there. Unfortunately, I am opening a new show that night. Nevertheless, that does not diminish for one second the great love I feel for all my companions, fellow missionaries, and friends who served so hard under sometimes difficult circumstances to do their duty and share their testimonies with the people of Guatemala and El Salvador who we came to love and respect. My fondest thoughts and feelings will be with you at the reunion even though I will not be present. As a side note, I have presented the Prophet Joseph Smith over 200 times to audiences all over the West and it all began in that theater in Santa Ana with your help. Thank you for all you were, are, and the great contribution you make today to this cause.

My first missionary companion in Guat (La Florida Jan 72 thru Mar 72) was an Elder named Gerald Gillespie. I was his last companion. I cannot find any record of him in our missionary lists. Anyone know anything about him????

I am not an alumni, but my son just received his call to the Guatemala City south mission. He is thrilled to serve among this people, and we are wondering if anyone could tell us what the people of Guatemala are like? What is this mission like? Any suggestions for him as he finishes up his preparations? Thank you, and forgive me if I err in posting this question here...

It has been a while since I came home off my mission but I thought I would throw up my name and see if anyone recognized it. I got home from the Guatemala City South mission in 2001. I served in Chiquimulilla, then just north of Mixco, Teculutan and finally in Zona 13 below the airport.

Just as a matter of interest- there are three former Missionaries of the original Central American Mission now serving as senior missionaries in the Maryland Baltimore Mission. Elder Duane Harmon, Elder Larry Coombs, and Elder Eugene Romney. We all served in Guatemala, El Salvador. Honduras and Costa Rica. Two of us have assignments with the Spanish speaking branches, and the other with the Annapolis Area. We get to meet every Monday night for FHE with the Senior, and spend most of the time talking about things we had in common in Central America The experiences we had there have been a tremendous help in our current assignments in Maryland. It is a great mission also.

I had a very nice telephone visit with President Clark (1967-1970)yesterday. He is living in Draper, Utah, with his wife, Morita. Despite being 81 (and 1/2, he says), he continues to be well and active. I'm sure he would love to hear from any missionaries from that era. If you would like his phone number, please email me at

A shout out to the missionaries who worked in the Capital back in the early 70's and may have know the LaParra family. I was one of the Elders fortunate enough to teach and baptize them and we've stayed in touch over the years, which has been a great blessing. The LaParra's have served as Stake President and Mission President during the ensuing years. I'm looking to see if we can rally some financial support for them. Their oldest son Giberto (hijo) has completed the process for citizenship and is in need of some funds to help cover the legal expenses. If you can help with a donation, please let me know. I will set up a trust account at a local bank and post that information here shortly. Thank you, Doug Gwilliam '71-'73

Hello all those from the Glade era (1970-1973). This is President Glade's son. I was the third boy of my parents and the one that usually was causing trouble within the mission office. I get on this site every so often just to read the message board and see if I remember anyone from my dad's mission. I noticed the recent one about a Glade reunion in April and thought that would be fun. I called my dad and mention it to him and he had heard of anything but thought it would be nice. I thought I would give anyone from the Glade era a brief update on my folks. Mom and Dad are in their 80's now. Dad has been retired for about 3-4 years. At his retirement party from Desert Trust Co. they had a very nice dinner where President Gordon B. Hinckly, President Thomas S. Monson and President James E. Faust all came. It was a great way for my dad to retire. They loved him at the Church and were sad to see him go. My Dad's health is pretty good but my mom's is slowly getting worse. She is in the stages of dementia/alzheimer and has good days and bad. (Her short term memory is not very good but she seems to remember stuff from years back pretty good.) They both still live in their house on Wilmington Cir. in Salt Lake City. Dad spends most of his time taking care of my mom and just running errands. He is starting to use a computer now. He isn't very good at it but he can read his emails, do his banking and keep track of his stocks. He had a computer in his office when he worked for the church and I don't think he ever turned it on the whole time he worked there. My parents have 4 children, 17 grandkids, 19 great grandkids and 2 on the way. They currently have 2 grandkids serving full-time missions. They still love to talk about Guatemala and El Salvador. My dad just called me a couple of days ago to say that John O'Donnal came by to visit him. John is in his 90's now but dad said he is doing pretty good. I currently work at BYU and ran into Bob Kellet at a retreat that I attend each year. He works at BYU but in a different College. I get to see him fairly often and he seems to be doing great. I have some great memories of Guatemala and all the fun things that happened to me and my family while we were there. If you would like to get in touch with my dad, you could call him (he's in the Salt Lake City phone book or email me and I can give you his email address. Let me know about the April Reunion if it is going to take place.

I entered the LTM in November 1965, arrived in the Guatemala-El Salvador Mission in March 1966, and returned in March 1968. I am in the process of putting all my mission "stuff" online. If you would like to see what I have up so far, copy and paste the following URL into your web browser. 20Page.htm I also have copies of all the "Avantes" for that time period that I will eventually get online (webmaster: If you still have them, could you return the copies that I sent to you a couple of years would make the process of uploading a lot easier?) I would be interested in your comments.

My name is Dave Shurtz. I served a mission in Central America, which included Guatemala and a number of other countries in those days, from 1963-1965. I was married to Yolanda Galdamez Munoz of Guatemala City for 25 years before her death (cancer) in 1991. I have since remarried. My wife and I were recently released from the presidency of the Detroit Temple after 5 years of service. Before turning in our papers to serve a mission, we want to take a Book of Mormon tour to Mexico and Guatemala. We are traveling with another couple who also served in the temple with us. For our visit to Mexico, we are hiring a returned missionary to guide us around Mexico City for a couple of days prior to joining the tour. For our visit to Guatemala, we would also like to hire another returned missionary, a trust worthy member, or a member 'taxista' to guide us around Guatemala City and Antigua for a couple days after the tour ends. Unfortunately, after 40 years' absence from Guatemala, I no longer have contacts there. Does any one know of a such a person whom we might hire to accompany us around the city? I suspect that too much has changed in 40 years for us to rent a car and drive around the city with much chance of finding anything anymore. There will be 4 of us - a former counselor in the temple presidency and his wife, and myself and my wife. We will be in Guatemala March 24 and March 25, with return flight reservations at 1 pm on March 25. We are going to try to go to Antigua early Monday morning, March 24, tour the city and stay overnight, but we will have to scramble to get back to Guatemala City to catch a plane at 1 pm. From what I remember, the economic situation is always difficult and two days of steady well-paid work may well be a blessing that some member could use about now. Any assistance you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Dave Shurtz Auburn Hills, Michigan 248-370-9766

I'm informing that Luis Paiz passed away January 9, 2008. He served under President Elliot in Guatemala-Guatemala Mission during 1984 to 1986. He preached the gospel among the Lamanites in their own language: QUEKCHI. I was serving in the office when Elder Paiz and Elder Crepeau brought several buses full of people to get sealed in Guatemala Temple. They helped and prepared the whole village to get sealed as families. That was the first time the Guatemala Temple performed endowments in "Queckchi" dialect, certainly he was a faithful and hard worker as missionary. We pray for his family with the hope to see him again with Our Heavenly Father.

Dedicated to the Dransfield family: I just find out what had happened to Elder Dransfield and wife, and I felt very sad about it. I had meet him serving my mission long time ago on Guatemala, as I remembered him as a good friend and missionary, he was a happy and funny elder, and he always make us laugh. We will never forget someone as special as he was. I found no other words to say, I fell so sorry about it. This is a big loss for all of us.

I am deeply sadened to hear about Robert. He was one of my best companions in the mission. We reopened the area Las Margaritas together and had a blast doing so. We made many friends during that time. He was a great missionary and went out of his way to approach adn teach the people he served. Many lives were touched by the message he took to the people of Guatemela and I was able to witness that first hand.

I was watching the news clip from the recent conference, which highlighted the new Relief Society General Presidency. Sister Silvia Henriquez Allred (not sure of spelling) was called as the 1st counselor. She is originally from El Salvador, and served a mission in the Central America Mission. Since there's always posting on here about the "Elders" who have received callings, I thought we should hear about the "Hermanas" as well!!! The video clip has a short talk she gave at the press conference following being sustained, and is on the newsroom area of LDS.ORG

I just moved to the Salt lake area where I have taken a job as a Safety Manager for some roofing companies. So, if there are any of my old comps and buddies from the mission in the area, I would like to see you all again. I've kept in pretty good contact with Razz Nelson and my coconspirators in the Familia Unida via emails, but I would like to catch up with the rest of my mission buds and any of the members or mis conversos from the mission who remember me. Feel free to email me back. Elder randall Mundy

How time flies! I woke up this conference morning and realized that it's been 40 years since my service in Guatemala, in the Cakchiquel speaking area, under Presidents Hansen and Clark. They were years of love, and I still wish I could get back there for a look. I live with my wife of 37 years in central Vermont, about an hour and a half from the Prophet's birthplace. If anybody is contemplating a visit to the area and wants to to contact me for general information, please do so. You can visit my profile for more information. ¡Saludos a todos!

To all of you "old timers" that might be left from the Central American Mission- ( Wagner/Hancock era) I hope your health is good and that you remember the good spiritual times we had.I look at the changes from the late 50s early 60s and know that The Lord directed the work there. It was hard but well worth the effort. Gene Romney 59-61

URGENT NEED FOR SENIOR COUPLE!! Putting out feelers to any of you who have been contemplating serving a senior mission. We arrived in the Santiago East Mission in August, served in WONDERFUL little town at the base of the Andes and fell in love with some very special people in a growing branch in San Jose de Maipo. Our assignment was changed a month later to serve as Area Authorities over Family History, so there is no longer a "matrimonio" in San Jose. Please - if anyone would love a wonderful experience (as good as a Guatemalan one) get in touch with me and we can help request you to come serve here. Beautiful area, climate much like California. Today is Oct. 8th. If you could arrive October 10th that would be wonderful!! :-) If you are not free to come but know of others where at least one of the two people in the couple speak Spanish please suggest this to them! Thanks, Adele Manwaring Austin (P.S. Elder Carlos Amado from Guatemala is the Area Authority Counselor in residence here. Wonderful man!

For all you jovenes that remember Elder James C. Kougioulis ('68-'70), now President James C. Kougioulis of the Chile, Concepción Mission, I would like to inform you that he is doing fantastic there in Chile along with his lovely wife, Teresa, and that the work of the Lord is progressing very well under his leadership. My wife and I recently returned from picking up our son from his mission there and had the priviledge of meeting he and his wife. What a great man he is with such a zest for the Lord's work! The Chile Concepción Mission is lucky to have him for a president. We were able to sit down to dinner and talk of the old day's, he in the late 60's, and me in the early 70's there in Guatemala and El Salvador. Our trip down memory lane was very enjoyable. He inspired my son to become a tremendous missionary during his 2 year's there and my son say's that Pres. Kougioulis will alway's be a man that he will love and admire for his devotion to the Lord. How exciting to have such powerful men as he to have come from the ranks of the Guatemala-El Salvador Mission alumni! Pres. "K", has served there for 2 year's now, so the missionaries will be blessed to have him for their leader for 1 more year. Under his leadership, many great things will continue to happen. Of this, I have no doubt!

In response to Rose (Williams) May from September: I returned home from my mission in March 2000, but Frank and Melvy were still very good friends to all missionaries there in Tikal II when I served there. They struggled with their activity in the church after Frank was released as stake mission president, but they were great people. Some of the best friends I had while down there. They had three kids at the time. Maybe you already knew that, but thought I'd share. I don't know where they're at now, but if anyone else knows, could they email me or post it here? Thanks!

Clifford Miles Peshell "Buzz" Clifford Miles Peshell, 57, our loving dad, granddad, brother, and friend, died October 22, 2005 of injuries received in an auto-truck accident in Colorado. He was born February 7, 1948 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Heinz A. and Ruth Pratt Peshell. Clifford married Mary Lynn Tomita in Idaho Falls, Idaho on June 11, 1976. They later divorced. Cliff served an LDS Mission in Guatemala. He achieved the rank of Sergeant E5 in the U.S. Army and played the clarinet in the Army Band. He owned his own trucking business and received an award for one million miles of safe driving. He served as choir director in his ward, a calling which he found both challenging and rewarding. He loved to sing and play the guitar. His greatest joy in life was being a father and granddad to his children and grandchildren. Cliff is survived by his three daughters: Keri (Roger) Wright, Penny Peshell, and Xela (Brent) Locke; two grandchildren, Savannah Wright and Noah Locke; brothers, Rinehart (Melodee), Tony (Calleen); sisters, Lorraine Stevens and Lynnette Peshell; former wife, Mary Lynn (Greg) Nelson; and many other wonderful family and friends. Funeral services will be held Saturday, October 29, 2005, at 11:00 a.m. in the Picket Lane Ward, 390 E. Village Blvd., Stansbury Park, Utah. Friends may call at the church on Saturday from 9:45-10:45 a.m. Due to the nature of the accident, Cliff's remains were cremated. His cremains will be interred in the Salt Lake City Cemetery at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday. Published in the Deseret Morning News, Thursday October 27, 2005.

I've been perusing a bunch of the posts here - it seems like a lot of people who are called to the Guatemalan - El Salvador area have had parents or siblings called to the same area. I recieved my call to the Guatemala City South mission about two months ago (I leave July 27), and my dad, uncle, and cousin all served within 100 miles of my mission. Weird. Anyway, I can't wait to go and hope I have everything I need. Although according to my mother it will all be stolen anyway.

The brother called to be the leader of the group is Jose Ruano who lived with his growing family--ten kids, I think--in Xela when my group, La Familia Unida, did our show there. He remembered the group fondly. We also have a young guy that home-teaches with me from Guatemala, Osbeli Barrios, who served a mission in El Salvador a few years ago. Anyone out there know these folks? I can get you in touch. Randy Mundy

Hey, Nate Rogers, I concur with the comments of my esteemed Greenie, Elder Nye. In addition, it will be helpful to memorize these phrases: "Goose-bye, my lung", "Por la gracia de Dios, ya soy salvo, va!" and "Fijese, no esta ninguno". Other than that, don't let the Gambu get ya and you'll be fine.

Hey Nate Rogers, congrats on going to the best mission in the world. Just go down and enjoy it. It is hot in most areas, take talcom powder. the people are great and the work is great. I wish I were going again now, maybe my wife and I can go as a couple missionaries when I retire in a few short years.

Hey, Nate Rogers, One word of advice: Do not put any leather shoes you do not wear every day underneath your bed and leave them there for four weeks. I did that in Mazatenango and, when I pulled them out, they were covered, every square inch, with about 1/2 inch of green mold. They looked like big green slippers. So pull them out weekly and have a shoe shine boy clean them up for you! Otherwise, keep the mold out of between your toes, work hard, and enjoy! Craig Davis, a real old return missionary.

My daughter just received a mission call to the El Salvador San Salvador West mission. She leaves on the 18th of May. I'm really excited because I served in part of El Salvador in 1968 to 1970. If anyone has infro on what the mission is like now, and what area it covers it would be appreciated. The wife and I are hopeful that we can pick her up after her mission. It's been 35 years and my spanish isn't the best but hope to be able to do it.

I served in the Central American Mission from 1963-1966. My wife and I have made several trips to Guatemala over the past few years. Now we are desirous of visiting El Salvador this summer. We are performers and professors of music at Utah State University and our travels always involve teaching music and giving public performances. I am looking for contact information (preferably email) on anyone in any Salvadoran city who would be a good contact for our music-education efforts. Do you know of a school teacher, a classical musician, a theater manager, etc., whom we might contact? Or perhaps a Bishop or Stake President? We are also interested in giving firesides or concerts for church members. Thanks!

Mas de 25 mil personas salieron de esta vida in un momento terrible. Siempre recuerdo. This was a moment in time that stands still for myself and all of my associate missionaries who were in country serving under Pres. Robert B. Arnold. Now, Pres.

I served in the Guatemala-El Salvador Mission from 1969 to 1971 with Pres. Clark and Pres. Glade. I finally took the opportunity to return to Guatemala for a visit this last November, after a little over a 33 year absence. We Flew to Flores and rented a car and drove to Tikal, where we stayed at the "Posada de la Selva". On our return to Guate City we rented an SUV and drove ourselves around the country for the rest of our visit. We went to Antigua, Tecpan, Patzun, Chichi, Solola, Panajachel, Xela and Copan, Honduras. We went to church in Chiqimula on our way back from Copan, and in general just had a great time! The scariest things to happen to us were a couple of close encounters with chicken buses. The State Department issued a hightened warning for travel to Guatemala just a couple of weeks before we left, but after we had booked our air fare. We almost decided to cancel our trip, but I'm very glad that we didn't. I would recommend a return vist to anyone that is contemplating it. It was a great experience! I was amazed at the growth of the church since the old days. (I still can't hardly believe that the old mission home and Zone 9 chapel are history). It was awesome to see a Temple there and get to visit it.

We baptized a girl named Maria Virginia, and 2 brothers, Cesar and Miguel Angel.

Hi everybody! In contrast with some sad news about Guatemala, let me tell you that my family and I just got back from a wonderful vacation trip to that so beautiful land. We rented a car and traveled across the country without any single problem or inconvenience. Some of the places we visited were San Marcos, my beloved birth place, Xela, Toto, Chichi, Lake Atitlan, Antigua, Rio Dulce, Coban, Copan and Tikal. What about that! All we experienced was a delightful weather, friendly people and lots, lots of fun and a great time. Last year we did the same and have plans to be back soon. If you would like some tips please feel free to ask us. My son Tony, now Elder Scheel, has been in Guate for six months now. He was recently transferred from Mixco to Fraijanes. He’s having the best time of his life, extremely happy and having a great success baptizing the ones I couldn’t during my mission down there forty years ago. Best regards to all ex-missionaries from Guatemala-El Salvador mission, specially to my dear ex-companions from the Brewer-Hansen mission. Mario Scheel

El Salvador is pretty dangerous right now, with high crime rates. Partially due to gang members being deported from US and carrying on their gang wars in Central America. Last time I went to Chichicastenango, it was still worthwhile, but there is still a lot of crime on the highway getting there.

My wife & I just returned from a wonderful week-long trip to Guat & El Sal. (I served from 73-75.) The highlights were our visits with 3 of the families I'd had the opportunity to teach/baptize. It was very moving & gratifying to observe the tremendous impact that the Gospel has had on their children, grandchildren & many others. If any of you have maintained contact with such families there, I highly recommend that you go see them before they (&/or you!) get too old. Please feel free to drop me a line if you have questions about travel conditions down there.

When I was there there were only 1 stake in all of the two countries we covered. The Church must be true we as Elders did not break the mission after we left. My love to all. Kay la via bien.

For any of you "old timers" from back in the '73 to '75 era that knew la familia Villalta over in the Santa Lucia area of San Salvador, I have an interesting update for you. Juan and Francisca Villalta are alive and doing well and living close to their daughter Celina and her husband in Layton, Utah. My family and I had an opportunity to visit with and have dinner with them just a few weeks ago while in Utah on vacation. Juan was the man that was the deaf/mute that was a tailor while living in San Salvador and was baptized with his family back in '74. They since have moved to the states and are happy and "active" in the church in Layton. Celina married a gringo who is in the High Council in their stake and now has 4 beautiful kids of her own. (actually, they're half grown up!) We were reminicing about the good old days back there around Ilopongo and good times they remember having with elders Allen and Burch. If you elders are out there, drop me a line sometime so that we can touch base. Elder Kent Heaps-'73-'75

For Mike Evans, who thinks we are not writing enough here. In '93 when we visited El Salvador we attended two wards that did not exist 17 years earlier, in a building that did not then exist. Saw a lot of new small chapels in '93, including one in a colonia where we once joked, "there are so many mormons in this colonia, there'll some day be a chapel here. In 93 there was still a lot of earthquake damage; it seemed they had concentrated on cleaning up the mess from the civil war. Only saw one rusted out hulk of a shot up bus on the road to Cerro Verde. We went to the Guat' City temple too. Since then all my wife's siblings have emigrated to the US, so we have no reason to return. My kids were not impressed by, "this is where daddy served his mission." They justed wanted to go home. But, in spite of the civil war, there has been great growth around San Salvador. However, the little towns were just as we remembered them.

She said that they now had laws against taking a leak in public (1 Kings 14:10). I'm surprised that no one is writing any comments in here. Are we all asleep???

TIKAL RESTAURANT in Provo is awesome! I returned from serving in Guatemala 25 years ago this month, May 2002. Last night my wife and I went to dinner at this new guatemalteco cuisine restaurant located on State Street in Provo at the bottom of the Orem hill. Incredible memories began to flow from the first bite of an authenic Tamale cooked in banana leaves. The special was Carne Asada with Arroz just like we all remember. And for dessert, Platanos Fritos with sour cream. Real Guatemalan food in Provo! They have been in business only seven months and need our support. The owner said she offers catering, and would love to cater mission reunions. Her chef is from San Marcos. Give them a try at your earliest opportunity.

I am interested in finding out about a missionary from my district. He is a good friend named Elder Morazan from Honduras. I think his first name is Wilman or something like that. He served in the Guatemala City South Mission from about 95-97. I have only heard rumors that there was an ex-missionary from Honduras who was killed by a gang in Honduras shortly after the time Morazan arrived home. Most I have talked to assume it was Morazan. I want to know if this was my friend. I pray that it was not, but it seems possible. Whether it was or not, I would still like to know how to contact him or his family. If it was him, his non-member family needs to know about his mission and how he has affected other people. If anyone can help I would be very greatful. Thaks, Robert Dransfield

Hello everybody! Thanks to Craig and his wonderful web page I hope that I will be able to be in touch with all of you, specially with my ex-companions who I miss a lot and I do not know what happened to them (exept two of three of them)I surely would like to know from them. I served my mission from May 63 to May 65 under both Pres. Brewer and Hansen. My family and I were baptized in San Marcos Guate in May 1962 by Elders Fuller, Bain and Glen. After my Mission I moved to El Salvador and lived there from 65 to 80. From 1973 to 1980 serving as Stake President of the San Salvador Stake (first stake in E.S. organized in 1973 with the assistance of our dear Pres. Glade) Since 1980 we are living in the Los Angeles area. Currently I am in the Hicouncil of the San Fernando Stake. I am in contact with members from El Salvador who now live here. If I can be of any help please let me know. My love to all of you.

We always did have a close relationship as a mission and it hasn't changed. The spirit of love and caring for each other is still alive and well. I missed those who weren't there. Come next time. Speaking as a sister who was always at arm's length, it was great to be able to give "my Elders" a big abrazo at long last! :) I love you all! Thanks! Karen "Jentz" Jensen Christenson.

Greetings to all Former missssionaries and members, This past weekend Oct. 19-20 was the 34th reunion of the 1967-70 (Pres. Clark and Hansen) Missionary Reunion in Las Vegas. We had two evenings of great fellowship and sharing at a cultural hall near the Temple. Pres. Clark and his wonderful wife Morita were there and shared mucch about how Guatemala and El Salvador have blossomed now some 43 years after the Gospel was introduced in Central America. There were more that 55 missionaries plus partners attending the reunion where we learned a new mission song and talked about future service as missionaries. We attended a Sat. am temple session and ate comida tipica on Sat. Special Kudos go to Adele (Manwaring)Austin and Victor Austin for being our hosts. The thing that impressed me the most was the spirit of everyone who came. I have spoken to several of those attending and everyone has mentioned the great feeling of love that was shared by those who were there. If anyone reading this has not on this bulletin board please do so. Also please e-mail paul Mendenhall with your address, phone and e-mail so that we can keep you up to date with our missionary group.

I did not serve in Guatemala but my wife and I lived there off and on. We were in the Montufer Ward in 1989.I had the pleaure of working with a elder who I've forgotten his name but would like to make contact with. He was serving in that ward at the time.They lived with the Lopezes zone 13 like alot of other missionaries over the years. Anyone know of this elder.I had many opeurnities to work with the missionaries then. It was great.I think the mission president at the time was President Romney? Right or am I off on that one. Anyways, it would be nice to make contact with him or some one who might know who I refering to. I think he was the zone leader at the time. Thanks.

Guatemala-El Salvador mission group 1967-1970. Greetings and best wishes. The reunion committee continues to plan for the reunion in Las Vegas on Oct. 19-20, 2001. Assignments have been made for each missionary to receive a personal call from the committee by June 24th, if you have not received a call by that date then we don't have your phone number! We also need your e-mail as well as physical address to send you announcements. Remember that President Clark will be there with lots of news and stories from Guatemala and El Salvador. In the next two weeks we will be putting a list of missionaries for which we have no address on this website so please keep checking on this site. Please mail your rsvp for the reunion to Adele Manwarinrg Austin at: Hasta Pronto! Ralph & Rosie Smith
