February in Mukah

Thomas had a great February in Mukah. Many people started to attend church.  There were 93 people at church on Feb 5th, a record for Mukah.  The amazing thing is that people are very enthusiastic about the gospel and the happiness it brings into their lives.  They want their relatives and friends to have the same experience.  They bring their families and friends to church to meet the missionaries.  Thomas has been doing the translation for visiting speakers from other parts of the mission.  In the audio messages he sent home, the words "great", "awesome", and "fantastic" were used frequently.  He and his companion, Elder Parker, are having the times of their lives, seeing how the gospel changes families for the better.

Here are some pictures Thomas sent home in February.
