"Colorful" Activities

We had the privilege of attending the confirmation of Gonzalo Machuca last Sunday.

President Laycock was thrilled (and surprised) when they announced from the pulpit in Sacrament Meeting that Gonzalo would be confirmed by President Laycock. What a blessing to see this wonderful man receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

These types of experiences
"color" our mission service every day. It is a privilege to serve the Lord as Missionaries. We love these people with all our hearts. Brother Machuca will be our brother forever.

We feel so privileged to be invited to participate in many "colorful" activities in the Mission.

This particular activity was held in the Nunoa Stake. It was a Primary activity to encourage the children to become Missionaries. What a beautiful sight for us to watch as these young people were taught, at this young age, to kindle a desire to serve the Lord as His Missionaries.

These are beautiful children of God, and we love every one of them.

President Laycock and I got to speak to them and to have fun with them. Then I got to kiss every single one of them. What a treat for me! They are so loving and so sweet.

Missionary service comes in many different "colors."
We are absolutely loving every
"color" of our opportunity to serve.
