Happenings of the week

We had dinner with our new sister missionaries at a cheap,
but really good Mexican restaurant in Garden City, after a meeting.
 We went to a birthday party for 90 year old Dollie. She lives as far
east as our ward boundaries go. We visit her every month in the rest home she lives in.
She has been telling us about her birthday since last December,
so of course we couldn't miss it! Lot's of her family came. Ron and I sang to her.
We had a ward picnic. Fun getting to visit with everyone. Our building
doesn't have a cultural hall like most ward buildings, but we have this
huge lawn out back that is perfect for gatherings like this.
Ron celebrated Fathers Day opening gifts and cards from the kids.
We had our last Zone Conference with the CCSM : (
Here with: Sisters Hendrix STL,McDermit,Macovichuk,Olsen,Bitter,
Pres. wife Sister Anderson, Mcquay, ME, Prince, STL Tisdale & Smith.
After this conference President and Sister Anderson took me and Ron
out to dinner. They gave us a book called "The Power of Everyday Missionaries",
a book that has been on my Deseret Book wish list! We love the Andersons, and
we'll miss them and all our friends in the CCSM office.

We also had an amazing week teaching an investigator couple. It is such a privilege to be in the Lords service and witness first hand the change His Gospel makes in the lives of those who he has prepared for it!

  1. Love seeing all the pics on your blog! Miss you both!

    The choir was supposed to sing in Sac Mtg yesterday, but because of low attendance numbers and the illness of the choir director, we ended up be a quartet -- Lee Wells, Jon, Angela, Janelle Alef (I played the piano). They did the Hymn Book version of "Love at Home". Susan Coleman held the baby so Angela could sing. They sounded wonderful!


Give me some shuga!
