Teaching these great people....

When we arrived in Zona Los Santos, the Elders were only teaching one person, a young man named Jose. We have continued to work with him in tandem with the Elders so that there would be an easy transition when they left the area. We have done many visits to members and new members of the church in the area. We have found that our greatest link to teaching new people is through the members. The Blanco family has helped us tremendously and they introduced us to our very first family to teach. Here we are walking up to their home......Honorio & Maria are in the middle and their 3 little ones are sitting in front of them. Maria's mother is wearing a pink blouse on the right. The other "big" kids are Maria's brothers and sisters. They are a very nice family and we had a wonderful discussion with them. They, all of them, agreed to read the Family Proclamation and attend church with us on Sunday. We are very excited to be working with them. Brother Blanco and Pat walking down the hill after we had a very nice time with the family.


  1. Looks like you are really getting to know the people and trying new things. I'm so happy for you. Must be cool, because Pat is wearing a jacket or sweater. Such beautiful scenery.

  2. We'll pray for your continued success with Honorio and Maria and their family. :)

  3. Tomorrow will be our 3rd lesson/discussion with the family and we will be leaving a Book of Mormon with our testimonies inside. Exciting!

  4. Hi,
    Sounds like you are doing good on your mission. You are in our prayers all the time. Enjoy seeing the pictures also. Love to hear from you also. Mick is busy doing landscaping in the front yard. Sure looks nice.
