|The cycle of receiving new missionaries into the mission |
continues. This is the latest group to enter the mission. We
received our first missionary from Honduras and El Salvador.
|Elder Ojeda and Elder Frost enjoy a ride in|
a moto taxi in Tarapoto Peru.
|This is the mode of transportation in all the jungle cities.|
By US standards these would be declared unsafe and outlawed
The greatest danger comes when you mix motos
with autos on the same road.
Way to go Hermana Gee!!!
Each missionary comes to us from different countries and with
different backgrounds. Many of them have come to the mission from
broken families. Often times my heart just cries for them when I hear of
their circumstances. There are times when I think no child should have ever
been raised like that. It is so important that we protect the family so children can be raised in a home with both a father and a mother.
These young people come to the mission with a hope and desire to
serve the Lord. As they serve and learn about the atonement of Jesus Christ
their lives begin to change. The hurt and anger they have carried with them is swallowed up in the atonement of Jesus Christ. He takes away their pain and they have hope of having a better life for themselves through the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is an amazing thing to see, it a a miracle!
It is a priviledge and a blessing to see this process in
the lives of so many young people.
It is only Christ that can lift our burdens, take away our pains
and heal our hearts.
