Pictures of LDS Missionaries playing music in Spain

Somebody in a FB group was asking for missionaries playing music photos for a website that they're building. I was blessed to be able to have a guitar on my mission in Spain, and I went through all my photos of where I was playing guitar, and here's a compilation. It's fun to go back look through these!

One of the less active members was paralyzed on the right side of his body, so I helped him strum some chords while he moved his left hand into the shape of chords.

We had a triple baptism this day, and we played some special arrangements of our favorite hymns.
In Spanish music, they use a lot of "las palmas", which is a percussive clapping technique. Here I'm playing guitar while a ward member, Bruno, is demonstrating "las palmas".
Here's me sporting my Barca tie at one of the most famous Spanish landmarks; Plaza de Espana.

My companion was awesome for putting up with the photo shoot.
