" And now I say unto you that this is the order after which I am called, yea, to preach unto my beloved brethren, yea, and every one that dwelleth in the land; yea, to preach unto all, both old and young, both bond and free; yea, I say unto you the aged, and also the middle aged, and the rising generation; yea, to cry unto them that they must repent and be born again."
Alma 5:49

Who says all Missionaries Look Alike?

Note from Hna. Williamson, mission secretary:  "Elder Bahr and Elder Leifer were so excited to see their great taste in ties!!  Elder Bahr is a very fantastic missionary.  We really enjoy him here."

Throughout all of the craziness of this week, I felt rather calm and I know that the Lord was helping me to complete everything that I needed to do. Ever since I have gotten here, I have noticed how much I need His grace in my life. I am far from perfect, and I need His help in everything that I do. He gives me the strength that I need, and he will help me as I put my trust in him. 

We are currently teaching a single mom (Elizabeth N.) and her 16 year-old daughter (Alejandra). The mom was baptized over 30 years ago, and soon after fell away from the church. Her daughter did not know much about the church until just a few weeks ago. They have a friend who is a returned missionary that currently lives in the US. She invited them to attend a couple of weeks ago, and they accepted. The mom, who had been asking to find the truth for a couple of months now, felt like she was able to find an answer. We started to teach the family, and the daughter currently has a baptismal date for the 17th. They read in the Book of Mormon every day, and truly have been prepared to receive the gospel. I know that the Lord is preparing people for us to teach, and as we keep searching for them, we will be able to find them and help them come unto Christ.
