A special thanks to everyone who has supported Sean and all the missionaries around the world. The Argentina Buenos Aires West Mission is the best mission in the world!
Elder Gilmore leaves Buenos Aires on Monday, June 21 and arrives at the Billings, Montana airport on Tuesday, June 22. We will be happy to be reunited after two years, but also know he leaves his heart in Argentina.
On Sunday, June 27, he will be speaking in the Livingston Montana Ward at 10:00 a.m.
On Sunday, July 18, he will be speaking in the Powell 1st Ward in Wyoming at 9:00 a.m.
Inbetween those dates we will be visiting his Grandmothers in California and perhaps throw in a visit to Disneyland and the beach!
Keep praying and supporting the missionaries !!!

Add-On - Week #52 cont.
I forgot that I wanted to say something else about that zone conference at the end of the email. President is really focusing on Patriarchal Blessings, and shared some of his with us, which was interesting. Patriarchal Blessings are probably the most interesting thing to me in the gospel. He told us that his doesn't say anything about serving a mission, but in Sister Benton's it says she will be a great support to him in the missions he will serve. Then he cracked a little joke, "Missions! Not mission...missions! plural! Well...alright, if this one doesn't kill me." Then he let out his Captain Barbosa laugh from Pirates of the Carrrrrrribbbbbbean. Haha I forgot how to spell Carrribbbean so I figure you can't go wrong adding lots of r's and b's...no spelling correction needed Dad. Haha, anyway, I just love Argentina, as unexpectedly hard as this mission is, I find that there are more and more things about this place that I fall in love with, and yesterday I made the personal goal to bring my future family, that is yet to be created, to Argentina so they can experience all the little things. Good stuff.
