Missions are Fun

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

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)

The Critter Stuck is Out!

We have had some drama for the past six days.  Something was stuck in our fan unit above the stove.  I thought it was a baby bird and got distressed more and more each day as we couldn't figure out how to get it out and save its life.  When we called the flat manager, they couldn't come for a few days, so it got worse each day as I heard the scratching sounds and felt helpless to save it.  Elder Blain could never hear it.  I could even see something in there when we shined a light one it.  He couldn't see it.  So, I was a crack pot.  I think the guy who came to get it out thought so as well, until he saw it!  It took us two days to identify what it is.  We think it is a field vole.  He is very cute.  We have to release him into the woods.  I think I kept him alive in the fan by shoving pieces of wet bread through the cracks.  He is thankful and quite friendly, though he did try to bite me when I picked him up the second time (not when I first pulled him out of his trap).
