President Kretly's letter to parents... It's a Miracle!

Dear Parents and Leaders of Missionary from Mozambique Maputo Mission,

Your missionary is doing great. All are in good health and today we are having zero problems with that and obedience. The mission is growing and the Sacrament attendence is growing each Sunday.

About 20 months ago the Sacrament attendency was 1,700 in 18 branches. Today the Lord blessed us with 3,200 total attendance in 24 branches. It's a miracle! What your missionary is doing here is amazing and we have no words to thank you for preparing such a great missionary. I think we can have wonderful missionaries in other missions even great ones like we have here, but not better. We really enjoy working with them and my wife loves them as her own sons and daugthers. They are adorable!

Please, keep praying for them, and the families that they are working with. By the way, since we started to measure that, (Dec 2012) the Lord blessed us and they baptized 274 complete families! Is this not a miracle? More than 85% of them are still active on the church!

Our next big goal is to send these families to the Temple this year.  This will be a big challenge  but with God nothing in impossible and our missionaries knows that.

Thanks again for all you doing to help them and lift them.

With love and appreciation,

President and Sister Kretly

PS. Please, be aware that today is holiday here in Mozambique (Women's Day) and your son or daughter will write to you tomorrow.
