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)

Who'll Give Me $50.00 for an Old Leg?

Sometimes injuries from years ago have a way of creeping up on a person.  I think Elder Blain's leg problems are a result of his leg being smashed by a heavy metal utiltiies cover when he stepped on it at the campground he used to take care of in the summers when he still taught school.  Someone had not put it back properly and he fell in and the lid came down on the leg.  His was laid up for a couple months with that injury and the leg has never been the same since.  He is now pushing through the pain and trying to get out and do some teaching, but it really needs to rest more.  I hope the pain will ease up and we can be going full steam ahead soon.  It wears us both out being less busy.  Patience, I guess.

Meanwhile, we were out and about a bit today, so I'll send the photos of the day.

The scripture that a special lady we meet and share scriptures with was impressed to read to us today is from Alma 37:36-37  Yea, and cry unto God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and withersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord; yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord, ; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever.  Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up a the last day.

She also gave us one more quote (she doesn't know the source):  Though no one go with me, still I have to follow.
Yes, they are still rooting for England and will be until the World Cup is over.
Cute car, huh?  The lady we teach owns it.  At least we got one spiritual fix today!
Last night was Family Home Evening with this special family.  The boys are five and six.  This young man is a single father and doing a really great job bringing up his boys.


Queen Victoria stands in the Newcastle Towne Centre.  The following pictures are flowers from her garden.
 The "flower" in the back is quite unique.

Busy Bee.
