A Magic Moment
Five of this group of missionaries will be returning home on March 15th. I am having a little difficulty these days thinking about the changes that are coming to pass sooooooo quickly these days. We only have 3 more Concilios after this one and then, yikes, it'll be our turn to return home as well. These experiences in the mission field are unforgetable. Today we listened as these 5 leaders of MML bore their testimonies of truths they now embrace personally; of their love for our Savior, Jesus Christ and appreciation of his Atonement, of the Book of Mormon as another Testimony of Jesus Christ, of the Restoration of truths of the Gospel once forgotten, of the Prophet Joseph Smith and President Thomas S. Monson. There is such a special camaraderie between these great young leaders who in the course of their unselfish service have become Mighty Men in the Faith of our Lord.(Jarom 1:7)
I get teary eyes just thinking about their farewell. Those in attendance...SLP, Elders Ditto and Trejo; Benito Juarez, Elders Martinez and Perez Miller; from Aguas, Elders Cano and Luis; from Aguas Jardines, Elders Peña C and Jirano; Leon Este, Elders CruzR and Ramirez; Leon Oeste, Elders Killen and Aguilar; Irapuato, Elders Toutai and Ramirez; Celaya Oeste, Elders Holt and Su'a; CelayaEste, Elders Leininger and Ruiz. Two new ZLs were in attendance without assignment, Elders Sherman and Whittle.
