We Deliver

   . One of the favorite analogies that my husband refers to when he is teaching new missionaries is his analogy of the milkman. A milkman's purpose is to deliver milk. What good is a milkman that doesn't deliver milk? A missionary also delivers. His purpose is to deliver the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He can't be timid or shy as he lets others know why he has been sent to teach them. What good is a missionary who doesn't deliver? 

  This missionary delivered. He said,
"Now I say unto you that ye must repent, and be born again; for the Spirit saith if ye are not born again ye cannot inherit the kingdom of heaven; therefore come and be baptized unto repentance, that ye may be washed from your sins, that ye may have faith upon the Lamb of God, who taketh away the sins of the world....come and fear not... and show unto your God that ye are willing to repent of your sins and enter into a covenant with him to keep his commandments, and witness it unto him this day by going into the waters of baptism. And whosoever doeth this, and keepeth the commandments of God from thenceforth, the same will remember that I have said unto him, he shall have eternal life, according to the testimony of the Holy Spirit, which testifieth in me."  (Alma 7:14-16) 
In March, new missionaries arrived and some faithful ones returned home. We will miss them. Here are pictures of the latest arrivals, transfer day, and the outgoing missionaries:
