Guatemala City North Mission

...let us labor diligently: for if we should cease to labor, we should be brought under condemnation for we have a labor to perform whilst in this tabernacle of clay, that we may conquer the enemy of all righteousness, and rest our souls in the kingdom of God. Moroni 9:6

Jan 09 Zone Conference

Our first Zone Conference of the year, we had the privilege to have Brother and Sister Tilley, the Central America Security specialist for the Church, join us to give our missionaries advice on how to stay safe. We also reviewed very important doctrine concerning the Lord’s atonement, the central point and purpose for our endeavors here in Guatemala.
We met with the Peten, Coban, Alameda, Atlántico, Molino, Esperanza, and Las Victorias Zones. The Zones in Polochic will be upcoming this Monday so check for updates.

New Year, New life..the best life.

Since missionary work is the life blood of the church, missionaries must be the plasma. We received wonderful new missionaries who arrived egger to put into practice all they have learned in the Mission Training Centers. They are Elders Wixom, Chesley, Castro, Velasquez, Ralda and Tzunux, along with one very special sister, Hermana Castro. Welcome to the Best mission in the world!

Last of the Big Guys

Every six weeks we are faced with saying goodbye to our dear missionaries who have completed their assignment given them by a prophet of God. This change was particularly difficult, in that we said good bye to the last of our first assistants to greet us, guide us, and encourage us as we entered the mission field six months ago. Elder Hatch returned to Arizona having fulfilled an exemplary and honorable mission. Each missionary has their qualities and talents, we will miss them all. In the enclosed photo you will see only three missionaries, Elder Hatch, Sister Rowley our wonderful office finance missionary and Elder Romero. We had two wonderful missionaries, one who was also our assistant, leave early so they might arrive in time to pursue their education. “Study hard Elders Wade and Elder Lowell, ...we will miss you!”
