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)

Blessings!

First of all, the greatest mission adventure we are having at present is getting to know a brilliantly amazing and lovely family of four females, whom I have previously mentioned.  They have enriched our life, enlightened our minds, and livened up our existence.  This energetic, wildly creative, and loving bunch have introduced us to not only their interesting and varied life experiences, but also to the surrounding area of the 1,000-year-old English village of Cheadle in which they live.  How lucky are we to have the on-going treat of teaching them and them teaching us!  Second of all, because of their generosity of their time, we have now seen the oldest buildings we've seen to date while in England.  Those pictures will be posted as I get to them.  So little time and so much to do in mission work.  Teaching people is our priority and everything else is secondary.  Teaching this family is frosting on the cake and the blessings are just as sweet and rich.
This beautiful young woman wrote the poem that was posted a few days ago.
These two beautiful young women are sisters.  The one on the right is in her gorgeous prom dress.  The one on the left is in her pretty horse shirt (she loves horses and has been riding since she was four years old).
Sisterly love.  No need to choke her.  She leaves for Uni (university) in a couple weeks.
Happy because she's finished college.
Contemplating her future higher education.
These girls are very polite except when I'm taking their picture! 




See how sweet I am?  A regular little angel.
The mum in the family shares pictures of her family.
I'm an angel too, okay?
