The Field is White Already to Harvest

Wow Elder Bailey, what a great picture! This one is for the Ensign or Liahona. "The Field is White and ready to harvest", here in Spain.
Yes, we baptize in the Spain Malaga Mission! Elder White and Elder Lignell know how to do it.
So do Elder Ferreira and Elder Roa in Elche.
Algeciras is a busy place for baptisms.
Elder Velasco and Elder Bailey are seeing great miracles in El Puerto.
The past week was a week of Specialized Training starting with the great Zone of Sevilla.
Elder Kusseling says, "Come see the great Zone in San Fernando."
So we did, in the same day. Way to go San Fernando.
The next day found us in the Malaga Zone.
This was followed by a great training in Granada with a special visit from Elder Texiera and Elder Justenos who were in Granada for the Stake Conference.
Murcia was ready for a great training.
With Elche following the next day.
We are in Ciudad Real but where is Hna Clegg?
Well at least they found one of the Hermana Clegg's.
We had a return visit from Grandpa Smith and his parents. Good to see you again Elder Smith.
Oh, oh, why are Elders Card, Rencher and Bradley pushing the Zone Leader's car?
Pte. Clegg is wondering too.
Not a fun call for Elder Hamilton to make. Somehow the gas attendant put regular gas in the diesel tank. But fortunately, nothing seriously happened and the car was up and running the next day.
Some of the Elders in the Sevilla Zone shared some pictures of a fun p-day at your every day castle!
Be careful Elders, don't fall out of the tower!
They all join forces to pull out the sword of Excalibur.
Elder Bailey is willing to teach and talk to everyone.
While Elder Bradley thinks he can recruit a new missionary? I don't think so.
We love the windmills of LaMancha.
Elder Taylor is trying to see if anyone is home.
Repent ye, repent ye!
We enjoyed a fun pre-wedding celebration just outside of Ciudad Real at the summer home of Ana and Julio.
This was a fun, casual evening with all the members of the Valdepenas branch and a few other friends.
Bea and Kenny were good sports at the "tests' and games they were put through.
The 4 Cleggs with Julio and Ana in front of their wonderful home. Generous people who are willing to share with others. It was a wonderful evening.
The next day in Valdepenas for church. Kenny has asked Elder Bradley to be our photographer.
Some of the Valdepenas Branch after church.
Elder Rencher and Elder Bradley are doing great things in Valdepenas and it is always fun to take a picture with the President. We love our missionaries, everyone of them.
Sujay and her husband Juan and their two wonderful children invited us for dinner after church. We enjoyed a wonderful meal. Then it was on the train to return home.
Yes, this is Hermana Clegg in Utah with her 5 children. My younger sister passed away after many years of battling diabetes. All 5 of our children were in attendance for the funeral. One came from Texas and another from Washington State. It was a tender few days with the family. We enjoyed being together but missed Dad. The stay was short and very quickly I was on the plane back to Spain where I belong for another year.
But in honor of Father's Day we will let 8 or our 12 grandchildren shout out a "Happy Father's Day, Grandpa," and a Happy Father's Day for all the Fathers of our missionaries. They love you and miss you and are doing all they can to serve the Lord in righteousness.
