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.

Some exciting news!!!!!!

Hello! 01/28/14

So last week was super busy again! We also received some exciting news!!!!!! So we baptized this guy in December and his wife was Methodist I think? But anyway at first she said she would never get baptized into another religion so we didn't bother to push her at all but her husband was progressing like crazy and got baptized. He was really looking forward to being sealed to his wife and it hurt him that she wouldn't get baptized. It was cool though 'cause after he was baptized she asked if she could still come to church and wanted a Book of Mormon so we just kinda gave her her space and invited her to read and pray about the Book of Mormon. We thought for sure she would get baptized in January but it wasn't happening and we were a little sad but then one day at dinner she said when her husband gets the priesthood she wants him to baptize her and we were so not ready for that!!!! And, the week before her husband was interviewed by the bishop and will be getting the priesthood this next Sunday! It's so exciting. So next weekend she will be getting baptized and then in a year right before Elder Hoggan and I go home they will go through the temple! And we get to go! So exciting! We also got a new bishoric this last sunday. The Elders Quorum president got called to be the bishop. He's a farmer from Idaho and we get a long a little too well haha. He's an awesome guy! But then our old ward mission leader is the 1st counselor and a ward missionary is the 2nd. The whole bishopric is really missionary minded right now so it's so exciting to be in this ward as a missionary. And to top it off the whole stake is getting in gear with missionary work. It's a great time to be a missionary right now. Something that has been brought up a lot is how missionaries are called to teach. Members are supposed to find! Our mission president had all us full time missionaries stand up in conference then said everyone else thats a missionary stand up. It took a little while for everyone to realize that they all needed to stand up! I think it really hit home for this stake. So it's just an exciting time for this mission right now! I hope all is well for everyone back at home and that you all are praying for missionary opportunities and thinking about people to introduce the gospel too! Love you all!

Love Elder Espinoza
