Ixtlan del Rio

Several weeks ago as we were driving to Vallarta, we passed the city of Ixtlan del Rio and President asked the assistants if we had missionaries serving there, and they said no.  After a few minutes President said, I want you Elders to go as soon as you can and check Ixtlan del Rio out and see if you feel we need to open that city up for missionary work.
They went last Thursday.  They got up early and took a bus the several hours away and spent the day there.  We got a text from them late Thursday afternoon that said, the field is white President, the field is white.
I testify and am confident that the Church of Jesus Christ, and indeed the Guadalajara Mission is lead by inspiration.  We are seeing the hand of God each and every day.  It is awesome to be a part of it all.  Here are some pictures Elder Wilson and Elder Molina took on their journey to Ixtlan del Rio.
