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)

'ave a gday, Love 'n 'ave Faith

". . .  whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world . . . which hope cometh from FAITH, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God.  Ether 12:4
Our leaves are quickly disappearing.

We 'ad a 'appy 'alloween party on Monday for Family 'Ome Evening wit our English Family.  As President David O. McKay once said:

"No other success can compensate for failure in the home."

Yes, everyone spend as much time as you can with your family.  It is critical and a priority.  Teach values, the gospel, and how to be a good person.  LOVE and have fun!!  Have Family Home Evening on Monday nights!  Below is part of our Family Home Evening this week.
There really aren't any trick-or-treaters here for Halloween from what we've been told.  There are costumes and Halloween candy in the stores but no cards except ones for Christmas. 
Elder, you are out of character!

There actually was a real spider this size in the kitchen where the cat was batting it around.  I freaked out!!

A certain Nephi doing Laban in because he had the FAITH to follow God's direction in order to save a nation from "dwindling in unbelief"
What was Isaac thinking at this point?  (I have FAITH in my father?)
