Birthday Celebrations


In the midst of all the missionary activities going on since I returned home, we had the special opportunity to celebrate with Elder Robledo his 20th birthday on February 21st. Elder Robledo has served so patiently and faithfully as our Executive Secretary since Elder Mendoza left....I think that will be about 8 months in the office. He has always "cheerfully and willingly" performed his assignments. I love this picture because it captures the special ability he has to always make others happy. He will start training a new elder beginning with the March transfer...so we will enjoy this special time for only 6 more weeks.....Elder Robledo we love you!

Your missionaries are really lucky to have you! Last week ryan's grandfather died. We wanted to call the mission presidents of his brothers so they could notify them personally- rather than just getting the news from an email in an internet cafe. Casey's mission president was easy to get ahold of. Very friendly, called Casey right away. Colins- doesn't even give out the mission office number only his email. We emailed him and he never contacted Colin. It was really frustrating. Anyway- sorry for the tangent- I am just sincere when I say the missionaries in your mission are truly blessed.

Hey there Hermana Cox. I found your blog through Tina's and have perused and skimmed most of it. You've got some great pictures and a lot of good memories. Looks like you guys have been having a lot of fun! And the Pres is looking really good! Good to catch up, and congrats to Matt and Brenna.

What a very handsome missionary! And nobody can throw a birthday party better than you. How very blessed and lucky the missionaries in Leon are to have you and Bob. Your devotion to the work blesses everyone fortunate enough to cross your path.
