Thinking outside the BOX
life is good in the Leon Mexico Mission. We are busy about the Lords work trying to improve and find new ways to reach the goals our zone leaders have set for the mission this year. The goal for March was 300 baptisms and we had 220 Convert Baptisms. That was a new record...our Buzz word was "¿Tiene Hambre? and the missionaries really worked hard to find, invite and teach others about the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ...hence, satisfying their hunger to baptize. We added an additional Assistant to our Office Staff. Elder Pacheco has been our traveling Assistant. He has served in Irapuato and Celaya and finishes with San Luis Potosi this week. We like the results we are seeing and are considering 3 Assts in the future as well. He and Elder Diaz will leave for home this coming Sunday and Elder Wille will be "the man". Our Office Staff has increased from 4 to 7. We have in the back row, Elders Pacheco, Verdeja(new Exec Secr), Wille, and Maxfield(financialSecty); front row, Elders Robledo (leaving the office to be a new ZL), President, Elder Hernandez(his companion, Elder GarciaH, left early) and Elder Diaz.
Also I am posting a picture from one of our Zone Conference capacitations. Our Elders are so very creative in their teaching. Elder Hines is the Zone Leader in Leon Oeste and is capacitating on #Tangue Lleño(which means Full Tank). Elder Gray and Elder Yañez are trying to fill the garafone with water and keep all the water in the garafone but there are holes and they need to be creative in keeping the water in the tank. They did the best they could. The water represents new investigators and there were many ideas shared of effective ways to keep the missionary tank full so we can baptize every week. It is so fun watching and learning from our missionaries. We appreciate their example and hard work. Elder Hines is one of the best and we appreciate his creativity.
