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)

What Matters Most--YOU, Duck!

Duck:  (Unique to Stoke-on-Trent, England) translation is a term of endearment the same as the word "love" is used, such as, "Okay, love, see you later" or,  "Iya, duck, yalrite?"  It also means "darling."

Each one of you matters most in our hearts and life.  Don't ask me how there are these little individual slots that each one of you can fit into within ourselves and we can love you uniquely.  That seems to be the miracle of family.  Perhaps that is a small insight into God's love for us.

Thinking of each one of you and feeling that love, I thought we should follow the Prophet's advice and let you know.  This love and gratitude goes out not only to family, but to friends as well (we are all family in the end anyway, right?).

Thank you for the joy you bring to us.
