Elder Espinoza
Alma 26:12 Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

Heading to the MTC today!

The Missionary Training Center in Provo Utah.
He will be there for 2 weeks then off to New Mexico for 2 years.

Last night he was Set Apart to be a full time Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later day Saints.
President Andelin gave him a wonderful Set Apart Blessing.

This sums up what Elder Espinoza will be doing for the next 2 years

My Missionary Commision

by Elder Bruce R. McKonkie

I am called of God.

My authority is above that of kings of the earth.
By revelation I have been selected as personal 
representative of the Lord Jesus Christ.
He is my master and He has chosen me to represent Him--
to stand in His place, to say and do what He Himself
would say and do if He personally were ministering to the 
very people to whom He has sent me.
My voice is His voice, and my actes are His acts; my
doctrine is His doctrine.
My Commission is to do what He wants done; To say 
what He wants said; to be a living modern witness in 
word and deed of the divinity of his great and 
marvelous Latter-day work.
How great is my calling!

Last week this was one of his facebook posts on the last day of his job from Life-guarding and teaching swim lessons at Columbia Basin Racquet Club.
 He said- 
Today was my last day at work. Gonna miss all my little kids:( but in a week the real work starts and I can't wait

Elder Espinoza is ready to go and excited to serve!

 I think he's going to be a pretty good Missionary!
We are going to miss him but we can't wait to start hearing all about his experiences as a Missionary.
