Christmas Party

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. My parents called me on Christmas and told me how fun their Christmas party was and how cute the missionaries were. They sent me over 20 pictures from the Mission Christmas Party and rather than put them all on one post...I have decided to break them up into several posts over the next few days. Happy New Year!

More Missionaries Arrive

This completes all but 1 of the 18 missionaries that have been waiting to get to Mexico since September. My mom told me that this was such an excited group!! They were so happy to actually be in Mexico and thrilled to be serving where they were called to serve. I don't usually add pictures of them loading their suitcases etc., but I thought it might be fun for you to see :)

These 3 Elders also arrived. They are from Peru and have also been waiting to get their visas. My mom said they were also very excited and a lot of fun!

Welcome Elders

I spoke with my parents tonight and they were happy to receive 2 more wonderful missionaries. These were two of the missionaries that have also been patiently waiting for their visas since September. Now they will be able to celebrate Christmas in Mexico!!

Finally, Welcome Elders!!

I was reading my dads email today and the spirit touched my heart as he told his feelings of seeing these 5 missionaries that were all between 6'1 and 6'4 coming out of customs with fire in their eyes ready to teach the gospel. They have been waiting since September for their visas and they finally came! What a blessing we have in our lives...what a blessing to the people of Mexico to have these wonderful missionaries ready to serve the Lord.
