District Meeting with Yakima Valley

2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (3)This morning we attended an excellent District Meeting at the Englewood building here in Yakima.  This is one of our Spanish-speaking Districts.  It was a wonderful meeting.  We all learned and were edified.  I am often speechless as I listen to these missionaries teach and instruct each other.  They are so good and have such insight!  They also help each other with suggestions and ideas for working with specific investigators.  They more than friends, they are like family to each other.  2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (4)2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (6)2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (9)2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (1)2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (10)2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (11)2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (14)2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (18)These Hermanas have drawn their “family trees” on the board.  Everyone keeps track of their “pedigree” or who trained whom, making them “parents” or “children” of each other.  It’s pretty crazy to hear them talk about “aunts, uncles, nieces, grandparents, etc.”  Everyone is related somehow!The2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (21)The District:2016-3-30 District Meeting Yakima Valley (20)After the meeting, some fixed food they brought and some went to buy food and bring it back.  Cheers to Elder Jimenez for a healthy meal featuring a salmon patty and veggies.  I always suggest to the missionaries to invest in a simple seasoning called Mrs. Dash because it makes every vegetable taste GOOD.  (If you want an idea for a care package item, please send some to your missionary!)  I’m slowly converting them, one by one, to eating more vegetables!  I gave Elder Jimenez a bottle a few weeks ago, and it’s changed his eating life!  Take a look:

A note on Sister Hawkins–she is trying a new medication and Monday had NO fainting episodes, and yesterday only a tiny one.  We continue to pray for her every day, every prayer.  She is surrounded by faithful good missionaries who are exercising their faith in her behalf.  Thank you all for your continuing prayers.IMG_1472.JPG
