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)

Beautiful Horse on Beach in Rhyl & a Church in Wales

He has made everything beautiful in his time:  also he hath set the world in their heart . . . I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to 
do good in his life.  Ecclesiastes 3:11-12
Elder Blain wasted no time gathering rocks and shells when we got out between flat appointments to walk the beach in downtown Rhyl.  The tide is waaaaaaay out.  This will all be covered in a matter of hours.
Lots of shells and rocks to find
This is directly across from the beach.  How would you like to live here?  The rent isn't even too high.
Where's Elder Blain in this picture?
Okay already, I know you want to see the HORSE!  We saw it coming up the beach from a long way away--just beautiful to watch.  I always dreamed of riding on the beach totally carefree.

The young woman riding told us later she rides slowly in one direction and checks for soft spots.  The horse's hoof prints are her guide to ride at a faster pace on the way back.
The horse didn't like the camera much and he was very alert keeping a watchful eye.

His ears were always perked up, so perfect for posing.

Quite the shave, huh?  I don't see where sweating is much of a problem in this country--go figure why this is done.

The horse seemed interested in hearing about the restored gospel.

There they go back down the beach.  I know, you wanted more horse pictures--sorry but I can't take up too much space!
LOVELY CHURCH outside of Rhyl over near the Bodelwyddan Castle posted a couple days ago.
This church is seen directly across from the Bodeleyddan Castle and right off the Motorway

These dogs were on every corner of this church.  I'm not sure what is in his/her mouth.

I want a door like this.
Obviously I like the hinge.
The mall in Rhyl with the Welsh flags over the door.  The people are very proud to be Welsh and it is a separate country.
The last of the Christmas scenes for 2010 for us.

  1. Love the horse pics! What a lucky lady to live close enough to ride on a beach like that. :-) The dogs must have a newspaper in their mouths LOL.
