June 8, 2014
Then on Saturday afternoon, Miriam and I decided we would drive to Gloucester MA. We had heard it was beautiful down there. It was the best day. The weather was beautiful. The beaches were magnificent and the Mexican food we got was wonderful. We had a grand day.
We can see that we are getting many more Sisters than Elders coming to the mission. In the July 1st transfer we are getting 4 French speaking Elders and 5 Sisters. In the August 12th transfer we are getting 1 Elder and 8 Sisters. It just keeps going like that. Then from the August transfers on, we send more home than we have coming. The surge is over.
But the work continues and it is wonderful. I sat by Gene(our new convert) in church today and it is amazing what the Gospel does to ordinary people. He is progressing so well. He does splits with the missionaries 3 or 4 times a week. He is so on fire!
Our testimonies continue to grow. We love our mission. We love the Lord so much. We thank him daily for this opportunity we have to serve here.
