Christmas Party and Missionaries Coming and Going

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed talking to your missionaries. I received a few pictures and wanted to make sure I got them up for you. The first picture was taken at the Christmas Party. The second picture is of a few Elders who had a Family Home Evening at the Mission Home. The next two pictures are new missionaries and the final picture is of the missionaries who returned home right before Christmas.

Home Again

What a fun trip! It seemed like a dream, it went by so fast. We didn't have as much time to get around to see all the missionaries, but it was fun to see the ones I did. These are the final pictures from my trip. The first two were at a baptism in one of the zones, the next two are a very small part of the mission (so many houses!!) The last pictures are in front of the temple and a few missionaries playing basketball.

Happy Thanksgiving

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving...even though it didn't feel like Thanksgiving here in Mexico...imagine that :) Yesterday we were able to go to Zone Leader Training and take a tour around the mission. I can't tell you enough how wonderful these missionaries look!!

Another Visit To Mexico

My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to bring my Grandma Tervort to Mexico so she could see the mission and my parents. Our flight got delayed in Phoenix so we didn't arrive until 3 am yesterday morning so we were tired, but feeling much better today :) My brother and his wife were just finishing their visit so yesterday we had the opportunity to have a Thanksgiving dinner. This morning we have spent time making invitations for the Mission Christmas Party, which was a lot of fun spending time with my mom and grandma.

Explanation on Sending Packages and Letters

Nothing has changed with sending letters or packages, but some of the mothers of new missionaries are a bit confused (and rightly so :) so I thought it might be good to put a post to help explain.

If you would like to send a letter:

Your Son/daughter's Name
Apartado Postal 118-184
Gustavo A. Madero
Mexico, D.F. C.P 07051

If you want to send a package:

You write this exactly, including Elder Jose Luis Escobar Maya (They don't like more than one name coming to the same PO Box when dealing with packages).

Elder Jose Luis Escobar Maya
Apartado Postal 118-184
Gustavo A. Madero
Mexico, D.F. C.P 07051

To make sure your son/daughter gets their package just make sure their last name is in the return address (or next to the return address).

If there are any questions, feel free to ask :)

The first picture is of the Elders that went home this last change. The rest of the pictures are of the new Elders. When they arrive they are fed a meal, receive 3 hours of training, have an interview and are sent with their new companions to their first area.

Sorry that it has taken me a few weeks to get an update. We just moved and it has been a bit crazy around my house. These are the newest missionaries in the mission.
