Grinning from ear to ear..........


I wanted to add this picture to the week's blog. Our Assistants were so excited to report the number of baptisms for the month of August. Our goal for this 5 week month was 400 and we were pushing to set this new record. It was a sacrifice month and all the missionaries were working extra to make it happen. They know they have to pass by me before they report to President Cox and this was their report.......
Oh how we love our missionaries. Our Assistants, Elders Robles, Hatton and Schow are responsible for the success of the mission and they eat, sleep, study, plan teach, think some more...then with constant communication with their zone leaders.......they empower others with enthusiasm for this great work of the Lord.....We are grateful for the 417 (one more was added later tonight)new members of the church who have access to the saving ordinances that can bless their lives.

If those Elders were any prouder they would be bursting their buttons. What a fantastic accomplishment. I can almost feel their excitement. You are leading these young men to unbeliebable success in saving souls in Leon.

What adorable elders. I'm sure there is nothing more exciting or motivating to them than their baptisms. Love the new look of your blog - it is so YOU!
