Let Us Introduce Ourselves

Hola to all the missionaries, family members and anyone interested in the Spain Malaga Mission. We are Presidente and Hermana Clegg, the newest lucky couple to be able to preside over this incredible mission. We are pictured here in the MTC in Provo actually one year ago as at that time we were assigned to the Spain Bilbao Mission. But as of tomorrow, June 30Th, the Spain Bilbao Mission will be officially absorbed by the Spain Madrid and Barcelona Missions. Fortunately we aren't being sent home, rather we are traveling on a plane tomorrow morning to Malaga to start what we anticipate to be a wonderful, spiritual, growing, loving and fun experience. But first and most important, let us introduce you to our family.
Here we all are in June of 2009. We have 5 wonderful children who are all married to 5 wonderful spouses. We love them all and are supported by them in all we do. We have 3 daughters and 2 sons. All of them are out in the working world except our youngest son who is in the MAcc program at BYU. He will graduate with his masters degree 2 months before we return home in 2012. We are the proud grandparents of 11 grandchildren, 9 pictured here and two more who have been born since we left.
This is Cameron Richard Christiansen born December 18Th, 2009.
This is Abigail Anne Poulton born May 24Th, 2010
Here we are this past week participating in our last week of missionary work in the Spain Bilbao Mission. We are one year wiser and experienced, yet the butterflies are flying again and we feel like we are brand new. We have heard nothing but wonderful things about the south and the members and the missionaries. We are excited and ready to start! Please follow us through our blog and hopefully we can give you a flavor of what it is like to be a missionary in this part of the world. We know we are going to love our missionaries and can't wait to meet the many wonderful people who we will have the privilege to work with. Hasta pronto!, Los Clegg.
