We Are All Enlisted

A future missionary!!
He was just baptized with his father. Hna Ackerman and Hna Sypherd are doing great in Cartagena. Hna Ackerman is working down to the last minute in her mission. Way to go.
Algeciras is baptizing again. Great work Elder Jordan and Elder Lignell.
Double blessings.
Valdepenas is all smiles and thumbs up with Elders Triana and Bradly. This was a special baptism with many people there to celebrate.
Our dear members in Caseres are learning about missionary work. Elder Allred and Elder Shaver made them their own missionary tags. Such a special branch.
Elder Waite and Elder Dunoskovic are talking to everyone in Granada.
We returned to Algeciras for a wonderful dinner with a few wonderful members who invited us to come to their home. We went on their roof for our picture.
Elder Jordan isn't sure what to think about the look that Elder Lignell is getting from the Presidente. Hmn, what have you been up to Elder Lignell? Just keep on smiling and keep on baptizing.
We were out in Sevilla at the Plaza de Espana and we found Malaga! Yes, the best mission on the face of the planet.
Two couples from our home ward in Utah came and spent two days with us. Linda Reeves and Jill Taylor and I are by the beach at Fuengirola. A beautiful day to be with friends.
We took another picture with their husbands and President Clegg. Brian Taylor is our Stake President and was a missionary in the Sevilla mission 27 years ago. He is sitting by his wife Jill. Mel Reeves was released as the mission president over the Riverside Mission in California this past June. He and his wife Linda were fabulous in their assignment. They also have a son in the Barcelona Mission right now. Oh so close, too bad he didn't come to the best mission.
Elder Taylor and Elder Fagerston spent their p-day and Elder Taylor's birthday visiting Mijas, just up the hill from Fuengirola. See the beautiful blue mediterranean behind them.
They are ready to take on anyone today.
The Stevens and the Massaros went along for a fun p-day.
We spent the weekend in LaMancha with Elder Weidman and his wife. He is an Area Seventy from Switzerland. We went visiting a few members on Saturday. We drove to Alcazar to be with Albalino and Elder White and Elder Crawford. The Cleggs also came along to keep us on course.
We were able to spend a little time with Hna Letendre and Hna Sturgess. They love Hna Clegg and working with her in Ciudad Real.
I wanted to get a hug too.
Saturday night before the conference we had a dinner with the leadership in the District. Here we have Elder and Hna Clegg holding the LaMancha cake made by the Presidente Pedrajas, the District President.
We took a group shot after our wonderful meal. We were missing two branch presidents and their wives, but all in all, it was a wonderful night. The next day was a wonderful branch conference. The mission is moving onward and upward and we are going to reach our goals for 2011.
