The Andersens

Elders Adams and Quierolo with a new sister in Alcoy.

Elders Reynolds and Fisher in Alicante 2 with a handsome new member.

Elder Ellsworth, who is really into family history, with his mission posterity:  Elders Farrell, Nyland and Reading.

Elder Guffey with a new friend!

Elders Weenig and Sharp and Hermana DeMayola with our mini-missionary friend ready to ring in 2015 with their grapes.

President Deere and I would like to introduce you to our new friends the Andersens, who have been called by a prophet to leave their family, work, friends, home and serve the Lord for 3 years in a foreign land.  After the first few minutes of talking with them over the internet for the first time, we felt like our missionaries and this mission will be in the best hands when they arrive.  We love them already, and appreciate their faith, sacrifice and even courage to accept this new call.

Introducing the future mission president and wife of the Spain Malaga Mission:  Darvel and Marilyn Andersen from Blackfoot, Idaho. And yes, that's the same city as our Elder Marshall and former Elder Keller!

Here is the Andersen clan with their 7 children and 16 of their grandchildren.  They now have 18 grandchildren.

Their youngest son, the only child not married, is currently serving his mission in Brazil.  He will finish his mission in June 2015, about 4 weeks before his parents report to the MTC.
