10 May 2015- Happy Mothers Day from Mexico

Life isn't meant to be easy- for it allows us to grow.

"I have often said one of the greatest secrets of missionary work is work! If a missionary works, he will get the Spirit; and 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

I was so touched by the kind texts, messages, pictures and gifts from all my children through out the WORLD. 

"The discipline contained in daily obedience and clean living and wholesome lives builds an armor around you of protection and safety from the temptations that beset you  as you proceed through mortality."
- Elder L Tom Perry


"Every morning..., missionaries should get on their knees and plead with the Lord to loosen their tongues and speak through them to the blessing of those they will be teaching. If they will do this, a new light will come into their lives. There will be greater enthusiasm for the work. They will come to know that in a very real sense, they are servants of the Lord speaking in His behalf. They will find a different response from those they teach. As they do so by the Spirit, their investigators will respond under the influence of the same Spirit."
- President Gordon B Hinckley


.....Pudimos tener unos 4 bautismos este sábado pasado y estamos muy complacido con el padre celestial por bendecirnos tanto. Hemos trabajado con estas personas por toda este ciclo y fue maravillosa ver su progreso. Mirando hacia atras, me doy cuenta de que la clave de nuestro exito fue las cosas basicas. Hablando del fecha bautismal y la capilla y enfocandonos en sus nececidades. Cuando hagamos eso, las cosas siempre irán bien.....

......This week we were able to find one new family while we were contacting in one area where we have not investigators, we knocked their door and after presenting ourselves they leaved us to join in their house. We shared a short message and we invited them to baptism, they accepted the invitation and they are very excited to learn more. This week we went to visit them with one member a recent convert, we did not know that he knew this family. It was a nice experience!.....

Sometimes lost sheep need a little help coming home! 
What are you doing to help?


.....Tuvimos una experiencia muy espiritual el otro día! Estuvimos en un lugar desconocido a los mapas de Mixquiahuala porque queda lejos y es nuevo. Pero estuvimos por allí y la cita se cayó, y sentimos la necesidad de ir a una casa naranja que habiamos visto al final de la calle y al llegar a la casa sentimos que no. Dimos la vuelta y seguimos caminando sin hablar y llegamos a una casa verde al final y dijimos los dos, que sí tenía que ser aquella casa. Tocamos y sí! luego dejamos la Harvesting Blessing, y aceptaron, hasta nos dijeron que estaban buscando un lugar para asistir! El viernes fuimos otra vez y decidimos llevar un Converso Reciente, Miguel, y teníamos la duda de porque sentíamos la necesidad de llevarselo, pues en el final, Miguel y Esta Familia son parientes, wow... Me quedé sorprendido y muy feliz! La familia podía ver el cambio que Miguel Se había hecho y ahora quieren acercarse aun mas al Evangelio!!! Fue una experiencia muy linda!...

Gracias por Todo!

Zone Capacitations on Thursday
Valle del Mezquital Zone and Tecamac 1 Zone



.....las lecciones que tuvimos fueron edificantes y reales. tenemos personas progresando y conociendo el evangelio, y eso me da mucho gusto. disfruto mucho la misión, y la verdad, veo milagros cuando abro mis ojos espirituales y mi corazón. esta semana hicimos el ayuno como lo hacemos todas las primeras semana del mes, pero la verdad, se que la hice con aun mas intención, y corazón, aun mas de lo que lo he hecho en el pasado. teníamos muchas buenas razones para ayunar. la meta, la hermana la laguna (estoy muy triste de lo que ha pasado a ella..... :( ), prepararnos para la visita de Elder Bednard, y tambien para encontrar una familia completa y lista para recibir el evangelio y bautizarse. y de veras, hubo un milagro. el domingo llegó un matrimonio, que escucharon a las charlas en california, y allí asistieron por un mes, listos para bautizarse. bueno, tenemos cita manana, pero sabemos que ellos son una respuesta a nuestro ayuno, y nuestras oraciones. dios escucha, dios prepara, y dios contesta. no me cabe ni la menor duda. estamos animadas. queremos seguir trabajando!!!.....

"Did someone give him his medication today?"
 I love our Elder De La Cruz (bike helmet) he was our very first arriving missionary  here in Mexico. 

 Hey there little chicken... it's fast Sunday. So probably not a safe time for you to be running around on the church lawn.

 Are these Hermana's from Mision Mexico Pachuca or from Jamaica ?
District - Zone- and Birthday Celebrations

 Oh NO.... not my sweet Hermana Bailey! 

 When we commit to talk to EVERYONE- we take it SERIOUS!

 This Wednesday we say farewell to 11 Hermana's who have made a significant impact in the Mision Mexico Pachuca. We are so grateful for their service here in Mexico and it may be an emotional goodbye!

So this is so funny.... I called these Elders 15 minutes out from their house letting them know my status. I was double checking their emergency funds and 4 required medications and garbage disposal from previous house checks. I pull down this street and I see two Elders (speed walking) towards their house as fast as their legs can go- with a little white bag in their hands! Then they turned around and realized it was me and there reaction was hilarious!!!
I love and appreciate them for having their emergency funds, garbage disposed of, and required medications in HAND (LITERALLY).

 They didn't mind my return too much because I came bringing mail and a big box from "GRANDMA".... thank you so much for sending boxes to our missionaries! 
Makes their entire week....

 Dropped off mail here and the mission vacuum for another set of Elders and found all well in this house hold! Laundry was even hanging out on their front clothes line! Impressed!!!

Another celebration of a successful mission for one of the eleven sisters leaving this week! Thanks to her great district for their efforts...

 Pizza and Root beer----- doesn't get better than this!

 Business meeting with President...and now all headed to the bus station with their zones pouch!
Good times and great memories! 


 Mother's Day (today) in the Apan Branch with these two fantastic Elders. They were so thoughtful with a little gift for "Mom Egbert"... 

We have the most incredible missionaries in the World, and for so many reasons!

  1. We love this blog so much! Thanks for all the time and effort that it takes every week. We love to watch all the missionaries and are learning their names and faces to the point that we feel like we almost know them all. Is that SNOW on the lawn in that picture of the courtyard? Many prayers and much love sent you way!
