3 August 2014- "Secrets of missionary work..."

"I have often said one of the greatest secrets of missionary work is work! If a missionary works, he will get the Spirit; if he gets the Spirit,he will teach by the Spirit; and if he teaches by the Spirit, he will touch the hearts of the people and he will be happy. There will be no homesickness, no worrying about families, for all time and talents and interests are centered on the work of the ministry. Work, work, work- there is no satisfactory substitute, especially in missionary work."

-President Ezra Taft Benson

Happy and hard working Elder Jacobson and Elder Rodas in the Teotihuacan Area... 3 August 2014



Celebrating new converts in the Mexico Pachuca Mission


Mondays are Fun Days...

 Elder Cardon left this cute red shirt behind so its became Mom Egberts new Monday work shirt ... Thanks Taylor!

 The Pachuca Sur Zone leaders moving houses on Monday. When we got their leaky house cleared and cleaned out everyone commented that we should do this every other month- "Pretend you are moving out" as it sure didn't look to bad when we were ready to close the door for good. Elder Beasley and Elder Russell just moved around the corner to a pretty BLUE house ...

 Look at what the WIND blew into the offices today??? Loving us some missionaries. We had five Elders take their final English Exams. So proud of everyone's efforts!

 Mondays are NOT p-days for the assistants. They were trying to work on their presentation for Leadership Council scheduled Wednesday. Intense focus right there!

 "Needing us some Books of Mormon"

 "Who said the Burger King slide is for 8 and under?"

Missing us some Elder Cardon... 

But so glad he made it safely home and was welcomed by these 3 cute brothers. I love the sombrero and mustache!!!

"Welcome home Taylor"


 "Gotta love the Pachuca Rain!" 


"Gotta love the Pachuca lights"

 This could very well be next weeks lunch...

 Only the weather in PACHUCA can fluctuate from pouring rain, sunny days to hail storms...

 Seriously? They sent me to the farm this transfer?

So Saturday is P-day kinda for the assistants. They got to work cleaning their house and scrubbing down their bathroom (Elder Kearls job) and had more fun doing "selfies" than mopping. Way to go Elders- also nice baptism Saturday night.


With Gratitude from Pachuca

Thank you doesn't seem sufficient to those friends/family back home who have so willingly donated bikes to our mission to help move the work forward. We are so grateful and the missionaries send their sincere "Thank you's" . They promise to use these bicycles to help the Work of Salvation in Pachuca move at a faster pace. 

Does a ten minute tutorial on how to change gears cover the basics? These Elders are so excited... it will totally change the dynamics of their work in their areas specifically!
