"All Creatures of our God and King"

This week we had a great P-Day at the zoo! And when you're a missionary, you know what song you sing to yourself as you walk around at the zoo? "All creatures of our God and King..." 

Here are some pictures of the sister missionaries in my district: Sister Silva, Sister Pipkin, and Sister Adams.

We also had a great chance to serve the other day, hauling hay and painting. Dressing up for the occasion was a plus!

This week, we got to travel up to Albuquerque for a meeting with our new mission president. We loved getting to know him and his wonderful wife and we're so excited to get to work with them for the next year. He invited us to list and ponder the talents, abilities, strengths, weaknesses and gifts of the Spirit that we've been given. God gives us both our strengths and our weaknesses for a reason, and he's promised that as we turn to him, he will "make weak things become strong." What gifts has he given you that you can use to bless those around you?
Last week, we were so happy to see that Jorge took that big step, baptism. Jorge is only 14 years old, the same age that Joseph Smith was when he was searching for the truth. Joseph Smith prayed to know which of the many churches was Christ's church and he received an answer to his prayer in a big way. God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ appeared to him and called him to be a prophet. Christ told Joseph that through him, Christ would organize his church. Joseph Smith must have had a lot of faith to be blessed with such miraculous visitors. Our friend, Jorge, has got a lot of faith too and we're so proud of him!

Well folks, that's it for this week! I think I'll end with some advice that's written on a mountain right across the border:

Have a great week!
