Missions are Fun

A missionary is someone who leaves his or her home for a little while so others can have their families forever.

Curious about Mormons? Go to the source and find real people at mormon.org--read what they believe and have live chats if you wish! (an official Church website)

Or, go to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, official web site: lds.org.

Our Mission Scriptures

Our Mission Scriptures:

"Oh, that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart . . . Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth." Alma 29:1-2 (Book of Mormon)

" . . . be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58 (Bible)

Wandering Gypsies

These are REAL Gypsy horses.  The Gypsies' have some type of trust where they can use anybody's pasture.  The horses mysteriously appear and disappear in different places, coming and going, popping up in various pastures.  The Gypsies are still travelling (Eng. spell) people, originally from India.


  1. So beautiful! I love these horses!

  2. I'd a never thunk the Gypsy Vanner was really a Gypsy horse! Very cool - they are among my favorites!!!

  3. Yes! REAL Gypsy horses! We'll take more pictures for you if we ever get out there and they happen to still be in that pasture. Maybe we can go find so Gypsy camps and convert them to the gospel!! They'd certainly relate to Moses wandering with his people in the wilderness, and Lehi wandering with his people in the wilderness . . .

  4. That's very interesting that they can put the horses wherever they want. I would let them camp at my house! I love Gypsy Vanners!
