Elder & Sis. Ochoa 9-20-18

Elder Ochoa and his wife visited the AZ Scottsdale mission in September.  What a joy they were to have and share their testimonies of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Elder Ochoa is a General Authority Seventy.  He has previously served with his wife presiding over the Honduras San Pedro Sula Mission, then President of the Central America Area, and then second counselor in the Young Men General Presidency.  He now serves in the presidency of the North America Southwest Area Presidency.  We were privileged to have the Ochoas with us for two days.  We learned that our main objective as missionaries is to baptize and retain.  And if someone asks, “Elder why are you wearing that great tie today?”, the elder is to respond “to baptize and retain.”  All done in fun but to drive home the point that we need to always keep our missionary purpose front and center in everything we do.  Following are pictures of each zone with the Ochoas and then random pictures taken during lunch.
