A Happy Day!
Sunday, May 24, 2009 our first group of Elders bade their farewell to the Leon Mexico Mission. We had met this group of 5Elders,ElderPickett,Pugmire,Schmidt,Smith and Bigelow at the MTC when we received our training in June 2007. It is incredible to think that their 2 years have come and gone. They combined with Elders Morales,Carhuapoma,Paz,Romero and PerezP who had been in the mission field for 6weeks and Hermanas Velazquez, Mandujano and Martinez to make this generation complete. We will miss them all...but they return home knowing they were apart of the generation that baptized 302 new members into the Church. We are grateful for their faithful service. Behind them....followed the new group from the CCM. Elders Velarde,Tepale, Jacobo, Leija,Tolentino,Marin,Ortiz,Ibañez,Policarpo and Mendoza,from top to bottom. They are very nice-looking, well-behaved, missionaries, trained and prepared to serve the Lord. We are grateful for their desire to Preach the Gospel. The 13 from the MTC have not come yet. They were detained with visa problems due to the swine flu...so this is what we do best..WAIT!
