It is always sad to see our missionaries go because they each one contribute their special gifts and talents to our mission family. They leave a legacy of love and truth. This is Sister Santos. She came to us from Temple Square. She did her 6 month rotation in our mission. She is from Brazil. We will miss her as well as the Elders that are leaving. Elder Stratton served as one of our Office missionaries. He worked hard to keep the cars and referrals up to speed. Well maybe that was a poor use of words (we don't want the cars up to speed)
We love them and will always consider them our dear friends.

This was a welcome sight. Eight of the eleven new missionaries in this transfer are spanish speaking. The spanish work here in Louisiana has been growing. There are so many good people here from Honduras and mexico to earn money an send it back to their families. we enjoyed our time with these good missionaries getting acquainted with them and feeling their spirit and hearing their testimonies.

The Spanish people In Louisiana will miss Elder Jensen, Payne, and Knight. These three great elders mastered the Spanish language and loved the people and their culture. They truly had become loyal servants of Jesus Christ.

These three amigos met their fourth compadre, Elder Sandres who arrived from Texas earlier that day. We enjoyed the day together and felt their great spirits immediately.
It didn't take us long to discover Sister Jack's beautiful voice and she and President enjoyed singing Nearer My God to Thee
