Elders Elescano and Randall

Elder Randall has been training Elder Elescano
who is waiting for his visa to Bolivia.

They are doing very well together and in fact
Elder Elescano asked President Turk if there was any way that
he could stay in our mission and serve in Peru
and not go to Bolivia.
Oh how we would love to keep him and all of those waiting for visas.
You bond very quickly to these great young ones.

While they were out teaching today...  a young man who was a member
came running out in the street and asked if they could come and give
his grandma a blessing.  She had just traveled down from the mountains
and was very sick.  The missionaries were so happy to help.
There was a very sweet spirit there in the room.
Oh the peace and power that come with the Priesthood.
The family was so thankful.

President loves the time he has to talk about
family and the work with these companionships
as they are walking form appointment to appointment.
The elders asked president about his family growing up
and he told them that he had two siblings that have
both passed away and he is the only one left.
Each of these Elders have lost a brother too.
They shared sweet and tender experiences 
with each other.

They are so thankful for the answers the Gospel teaches 
about life and death and eternal life. 
We are thankful for our testimonies on life after death.
