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)

Happy Halloween-Children & Grandchildren from Last Year

"Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh.  For the Lord shall be they confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken."  Proverbs 3:25-26

This Halloween you can "be not afraid of sudden fear" as it states in that scripture, which I thought sounded funny and quite Halloweenish.  Halloween is some of our family members' favorite day of the year.  Since Elder Blain and I can't really dress up as anything but missionaries for Halloween, and all missionaries are in by 5 p.m. that night, and we wouldn't be trick-or-treating on Sunday anyway, I decided to celebrate by posting some of the Halloween pictures from last year.  Oh, and I was told that children still trick-or-treat in various areas. which means trick-or-treating isn't totally non-existent in England as I previously had been told.
B. and me last Halloween--everything is just ducky with me!
Daughter and grandson E.
Some family member loathe the Cowboys, but not grandson S. apparently
Granddaughter L. is dressed as some character of whose name I've forgotten
Grandson B. was Michael Jackson
Last year, I went to visit daughter K. in Denver and her husband had put this bony fellow on my bed to greet me.
Grandson D. didn't really dress up--too cool, I guess, but I did manage to get a pose out of him and turn him purple!
