Blanca Navidad

Blanca Navidad
A goal for the mission was to have a Blanca Navidad, or in other words, for every companionship to baptize on December 26th. We were able to attend many wonderful baptisms that Sunday. Here are a few photos of the happy missionaries, the happy new members and their happy families.
There was great family and ward support for the 5 new converts in the Torreon Jardin Stake as shown above.
Here are the 5 new members and the missionary or member who baptized them, including, Elders Ramos, Navarette, Polo, and Miranda.

Elders Smith, Martinez Vasquez and Brother Jasso are shown here with their two honored guests, dressed in white and ready to be baptized.

Sr. Teresa and her husband are shown here with Elders Navarette and Bickmore. These missionaries will always be special to her.

Elder Miranda had his first experience using his priesthood authority to baptize this young lady in Sunday's special baptismal service. Elder Heffernan, his companion will return to his home in Hawaii next week, knowing that he has trained his companion well.

This beautiful young lady followed Jesus' example by being baptized by immersion by Elder Lopez Juarez. Elder Scothorne is his companion.

Elder Franco and Elder Barfuss baptized these two special young people in the combined baptismal service in Torreon Reforma Stake. They serve in the California area.

Here is the group from Torreon Reforma together. The district of Elder Franco helped 4 new converts in all. (shown here, Elder Franco, Elder Martinez Vasquez, Elder Barfuss and Brother Jasso.
