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

New Arrivals with Silblings

We received 20 new arrivals with our Changes this week. We also received two siblings of two of our Sister Missionaries. They will keep their missions "all in the family". Sister Calderon received her brother Elder Calderon and Sister Cajti was happy to receive her brother Elder Cajti. It just so happens that these two Sisters are also trainers which is why they were able to see their brothers. Welcome Elders Anderson, Borjas, Cajti, Calderon, Cantillo, Eskelsen, Proctor, Sorensen, Trunick, Welch, and Sisters Zuñiga,Portillo, Molina,Cabrera, Cruz, Rodriquez, and Nuñez

Sister Wixom and Sister Thompson Visit Guatemala

We are so fortunate to have had a visit of Sister Wixom of the Primary Presidency as well as Sister Thompson from the Relief Society. We even had a celebration of the Relief Societies' 169th birthday. They were so impressed with our wonderful and faithful members as well as our beautiful children.

4 Missionaries, two stories

We have missionaries from many parts of the world. When two find they come from the same country, this immediately brings them great joy. Such was the case when our two Canadians saw each other for the first time during training. Elder Mark Jensen from Delburne, and Elder Brett Payne from Balzac, Canada.
We are blessed to have two wonderful nurses who do their best to keep a watchful eye and help our missionaries stay healthy. Sister Mitchell and Sister Westenskow.
