Mother's Day, Week of May 12-18, 2013

On Mother's Day we got to Skype with this handsome Elder.  It was great to see him and see for ourselves that he is the same fun-loving Tay.  Forty minutes was too brief a time to spend with him but it was so great.
Taylor was amazed at the changes in his nephew and younger siblings.
 Time to sign off after our brief visit...
The Elders went this past week with Elder and Hna. V. to a pueblo to conduct a baptismal interview.  The children in this pueblo love Elder V. and always surround him.  He has served previously as a mission president in Argentina.  Elder Jaussi thinks the world of him and his wife.

The office missionaries presented Hna. Salinas with a cake for her birthday.  Elder Jaussi looks very tall standing next to everyone else.

Elder and Hna. V. practicing their "boxing" skills.  He says he has learned everything he knows from his wife.  Our family had the chance to visit with both of them while Skyping with Elder Jaussi on Mother's Day.  They are a wonderful missionary couple.
       Taylor says that the DearElder letters have come to him very quickly in the office.  He loves the normal letters but says that it is nice to have "fresh news."
       One of his responsibilities in the office is to translate English correspondence into Spanish for Elder V. and his wife and others.  He isn't that confident with his Spanish writing skills but feels like it is improving with this practice. 
    Taylor said, "When the new mission presidents get here, the offices are changing to the corner right next to the temple. Right now, the building says "Bar Principal" but it will soon be new offices. I've been able to see inside and they look sweeeet! One Elder put it this way: You know this church is great because we not only change people, we change buildings! Changing drunk people and drunk buildings too! We were supposedly changing over to the new offices this transfer but they've been held back in construction for this, that, or the other."
