The Journey Homeward

Just wanted to send one last post saying that Amanda's parents arrived in Salta, Argentina this past Monday to pick her up.  They then spent 2 days visiting with the members that she served and the new converts that she introduced to the gospel of Jesus Christ.  They will be spending the next 2 weeks touring South America, including Macchu Picchu, and will arrive 'home' May 20th. 

We will post pictures of their journey home if we receive any.

Baptisms and More Baptisms

Hermana Castillo is winding down her mission and will be leaving the Salta, Argentina Mission on May 3rd when her parents pick her up.  She is doing great!  She had 3 baptisms this past Saturday and has another on this coming Saturday.  This baptism coming up means a lot to her because of all of the hard work that she had to put in to help out this person.  Today, she will be getting her final companion.  She will be a 'newbie' from either Chile or Arizona.  She's very excited to finish this final leg of her mission strong and continue to share the gospel with the Argentine people.

Final Transfer

So, Hermana Castillo has been to her final transfer.  She loves her new location, is having great success and is not ready to fathom returning home.  Her emails have been with her parents planning their trip to pick her up in May.  Her final day as a serving missionary in the Salta, Argentina Mission will be May 3rd, in which her parents will then pick her up for a fabulous vacation around her mission and to Macchu Pichu.  Continue to keep her in your prayers and below are some photos of her new area with her companions & Mission President
