Coro de Cumpleañnos con Mis ayudantes
This year we are kicking off birthday celebrations with a special choir number performed under the direction of Elder Moreno; each missionary with a birthday is given a Leon Mexico Mission label pin. Zone conferences are completed for the month of July. I had so much fun with my presentation. I used Elder L.Tom Perry's conference talk about the 5 ingredients for eternal life....and chose 5 ayudantes(helpers) to mix up a cookie recipe with 5 ingredients. I taught the importance of having an image...of eternal life in our minds, like a illustration in a cookbook of a perfect dish or cookie. The missionaries loved wearing my aprons and they all took on a Martha Stewart imitation as the spotlight was placed on them to do their part. This was Michael´s death anniversary week and I was able to share my testimony of the plan of salvation and how our family is trying to do what is necessary to follow this 5 ingredient recipe of faith, repentance, baptism, gift of the Holy Ghost and then enduring to the end in righteous living. Melanie came for a visit on Friday and Saturday and was able to participate in our zone conference in Leon. That was such a treat for Bob and I, Saturday we ventured to my favorite city... Guantajuato. The pictures attached are of our birthday choir and chefs in the Leon Oeste and Este Zones, Melanie and I at the Catarina store in Guanajuato.
