4 x 4 or "Cuatro por Cuatro" = 300

We are so charged and prepared for the month of May. It is another 5 week month so our theme 4 x 4 reflects our goals of 4 in the Chapel, 4 New Investigators, 4 Baptisms with the developement of serving in 4 dimensions, 1) With all our Heart, 2)With all of our Might, 3)With all of our Mind and 4) With all of our Strength. We have the obsession and we are off and running. (But so is Satan) Our first hurdle presented itself April 25th; the obstacle, Swine Flu. Our Church mtgs in San Luis Potosi were cancelled and this weekend they are cancelled all over the country of Mexico. We are experiencing some hesitancy for the missionaries to enter homes to teach their investigators...but we are trying in every way to have a positive attitude...We know the Lord will bless us. I am posting some pictures of our recent Zone Conferences. They were all centered around the
4 x 4 Theme with great capacitations by zone leaders and class room participation. President Cox even got into the action....competing against Elder Sherman. He was defeated by Elder Sherman 60 to 50...But he still can compete and is in fine form. I think the Elders were impressed. What fun we have with these special servants of the Lord. Pictures of Elder Camargo, ZL in Leon Oeste; Elder Saucedo blindfolded and trying to convince his District to help him....using his 4 strengths...heart, might, mind and strength; and Elder Callen and Elder Martinez working together as a team to pass the egg.....demonstrating that everyone has to do their part....WE ARE OPERATING AS A TEAM....Can you tell how much we love this Work we have been called to Do. What great joy we have Serving the Lord.

Your zone conference looks so fun--not quite like ours! Great theme 4 X 4. Sure you will make positive progress. So fun to see you enjoying those Elders so much. Life looks good in Leon Mission (except for the Swine flu scare. Hope it doesn't slow things down or catch anyone there)

I have been thinking and wondering about you all with the swine flu scare. I hope you and all your missionaries are doing ok and that it isn't hindering your goals too much! I love reading about your BUSY lives! All these things are so familiar from my mission and I remember the excitement over mission goals! You two are so amazing and I know your mission will be blessed for your service! We love you!
