A day in the Mission Field.......Paradise!

August Training Meeting

August 8, 2011

Well this week was pretty good, we worked really hard. I attended a leadership training meeting, and I learned a lot. The two things that stuck out to me, while at the training meeting was the purpose that God has for us and what our purpose is while here on earth. The purpose of God is to bring to past the Immortality and Eternal Life of man, that is his work and his Glory. And our purpose is to become like him, to love, and serve one another, and to teach and grow in knowledge. I am thankful that I have the opportunity and blessing to be constantly reminded of these principles, and then to go forth as a Missionary and teach them to others. I love being a Missionary!

This is my Mission Boundries

TORREON MEXICO! Torreon is about 850 miles south of the Arizona/Mexico border. Mission boundaries go south, almost to Mexico City, and west, almost to Mazatlan Mexico, and east almost to Monterey Mexico. The climate here is hot in the summer reaching 100 degrees or more, but because it is high desert, it can freeze in the winter. Our elevation in Torreon is over 3,200 ft. Population is about 610,000.

Things you might see in a shopping center.........

So my Companion and I had gone into town one day to pickup a few things. We were surprised to see this Army tank parked in the parking lot just "chillin". I guess it is something that you have to get used to. I will admit it felt really strange, and made me feel uneasy. But I guess I will see a lot worse.
