 We love our Zone Leaders, but every once in awhile, 
their true natures come out and we're not quite sure what to think...

Elder Avendano, one of our return missionaries, came to visit with his fiancee and both of their parents.  It was so fun to meet them all and hear the story of how they met.  They plan to marry in April.

Because of some knee problems he was having, Elder Alba had to go home a few months early.
