Conference to Create a New Stake
December 2, 2012
This was a great day for the Church in Spain as 2 Stakes were re-organized into 3, creating the new Cartegena Stake. It was also a great day for Elder Mambo, because his family lives in the Valencia Stake, and they were all there for the meeting! Look at all those future Elder Mambos! Normally it is against the rules for missionaries to see their families while serving, but this was a case of two Stakes from 2 different Missions meeting on the same day. Lucky for them! (No moving to Spain just to see your missionary!)
As our Missionaries all know, we had a group of 21 outstanding missionaries return home on December 6. Here they are in small groups:
Back row: Elder Thomas, Thornley, Mervai and Lyman
Front row: Elder Philips, Long and Elder Jordan
Hermanas Crowder, Letendre, Gibson and Sypherd
Elders Cooper, Rencher and Pearce
Back row: Elder Shaver, Forrest, Bailey and Card
Front row: Elder Hales, White and Elder Peterson

Our victorious office staff (also baggage handlers, travel agents and party planners). No problems this time--all returning missionaries are loaded onto the bus and ready to go to the airport at 3:50 am. Elders Manning, Valenzuela, Nally, Mockler, Berrett and Peterson. These Elders worked really hard to get everyone home. Thanks Elders for all you do!
Here's the whole group. It's hard to sum up the work that these great missionaries have done in the past 18 months to 2 years, but this next picture is a good start.
