Here we are, one year exactly to the day that we arrived in Germany to be oriented by the Area Presidency. We stayed the night and then the next morning, June 30th, 2009, we landed in Bilbao, Spain. At that time we had no idea we would only be here for one year, but boy what a year it has been. We loved the green mountains, the quaint and colorful houses and the beautiful ocean shores. But mostly we fell in love with all the wonderful members and our dear missionaries. You have all made our time here a heaven on earth.
So what more can we say than we love you and will miss you all! You welcomed us and showed us the best that Spain has to offer. As our final blog post we felt like showing a few pictures of the wonderful new members who were baptized during the year we were here. We don't have a picture of all 191 of them, but the ones pictured are a great representation of all of them. We have chosen not to put their names but rather just enjoy the many faces of some of the newest members of the true church.
We leave with a greater appreciation for the love the Lord has for all his children. Our parting words upon leaving are....
