Madrid MTC Missionaries Sing on 12 May 2013

On Sunday, May 12, 2013, the missionaries of the Madrid MTC performed on the steps of the entrance to the Madrid Temple Square. The following are pictures of the missionaries and a link to the YouTube video of their performance of "We'll Bring the World His Truth (Army of Helaman)."

As Pres. Sullivan directs, the regular sister missionaries from the Madrid Mission (seated by the fence) and non-member passers-by (standing by the gate) listen to the music:

Sisters Hansen and Smith in Madrid

Earlier we posted a picture of us with Sister Smith, who was then a new missionary at the Madrid MTC. Since then, Sister Smith has received her assignment in the Spain Madrid Mission. And to our surprise, she was assigned to the Madrid 6th ward, which we attend! Her new companion is Sister Hansen, from Norway, who speaks English like a life-long resident of the United States, in addition to speaking Norwegian and Spanish.

Sunday evening, May 5, we invited these sisters for a Mexican dinner at our apartment. We had a chicken fajita buffet, with homemade refried beans, cheese, jalapeƱo peppers, a Spanish version of sour cream, homemade guacamole, lettuce and tomatoes. Here are Sisters Hansen and Smith at the "buffet":

 After the meal we posed for a picture: Scott, Sister Hansen, Sister Smith, and Beverly:

The sisters then shared a spiritual thought about having faith in our Heavenly Father. We love these wonderful sisters!
