Semana Santa 2014

 Families and friends at home, this week we begin a week of complete consecration to the work of the Lord Jesus Christ.  We do this by being perfectly obedient and completely consecrated missionaries every moment of each day this week.  We invite you to join us by being perfectly obedient in your prayers and scripture study, in offering service to someone each day, and in fulfilling your duties you currently perform.  Have a wonderful week with us, and ask your missionary how their week went!

The heat is coming

Elders Buckway and Chumbipuma in Alcala.

Elders Baker and Antezana in Murcia 1.

Elders Marchant, Wiley and England (not pictured) in Malaga 2.

Look who came to church in Malaga 4!  The Malaga 4 district and a bunch of geckos.

This looks like a huge baptism in Elche 2, but it was a family history theater performance the missionaries did with the youth.

Bring on the heat!  These Hermanas aren't scared!

Three generations:  Elder Guarcax, left, is the son, Elder Bassett is the dad and Elder Peroni is grandfather.
Elders Flint and Dansie getting leftovers at the mission home.

Meet The Happy Wall in the kitchen of the mission home.  This is a mixture of wedding announcements from former missionaries and personal friends, Christmas cards from family, friends, neighbors and families of missionaries. Both our family and the missionaries LOVE it, so have fun finding yourself, and send a picture of your family next Christmas!
