Brownies vs. Valentine cookies?






This has been a week of interviews. Normally I prepare Costco brownies for all the missionaries and they love them. But with Valentines Day approaching, the missionaries in Leon received heart-shaped sugar cookies. It was a fun for me, so I hope they liked them. We post pictures in our monthly newsletter (La Cosecha) of the top baptizing zone and district for the month...but because Elder De Hoyos was with us for the conferences we did not take our normal pictures. I am including a sampling of our great missionaries here in the Leon Mexico Mission:
#1 is Elder Mozo's District in Leon Este Zone #2 Elder Salazar, one of our newest Elder's in for his first round of interviews #3 Elder Gray's district in Leon Oeste. Silao had 11 investigators in their House of Prayer on Sunday and Guanajuato had 3. This District is really experiencing some great progress. #4 Elder Solt's District in Irapuato. Elder Toutai is poising in a rather unpredicatable fashion...you'd never believe that he is one of the Zone Leader's in Irapuato. #5 is a picture of Elder Calvillo's zone in San Luis Potosi. They are furtherest from the mission home so we combined their interviews with our Stake Conference in Benito Juarez Stake. It was a long day as we rushed home to attend the wkly mtg with Assts and break the fast with our Office Elders....We are eternally grateful for these special experiences we continue to have as we Serve the Lord with these great missionaries...and so many more (We have a total of 153 missionaries now.)

Your Elders look so enthused and fun. You two have a unique way of inspiring, uplifting and filling them with determination and faith. And those Valentine sugar cookies surely add to their love for you. You need to start "weening" them to maybe store bought Oreos!!

Thanks for everything you do for your missionaries. As a mom of one of them I can say I know they feel your love and encouragement. You are both special people.
