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)

More Young Single Adult Fun

 " . . . learn wisdom in thy youth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God."  Alma 37:35

We are slowly learning our duties to support the young adult program for Preston and Chorley area.  Elder Tom Perry received revelation that the future growth of the Church in Europe is within the age bracket of 18-30.  They are our strength and our leaders of tomorrow.  Centers for Young Adults are popping up all over Europe to provide a means whereby these wonderful young adults can attend Institute classes and other activities that strengthen them spiritually and provide support in their life.

Thursday night was another fun activity that was totally organized by one of the leaders.  Everyone was invited to taste the numbered items on the table to guess which one is the most expensive brand.  Most of them could tell the better brand, which did usually cost the most.  Is the lesson here that we get what we pay for?  Can a person really tell the difference if they don't have the expensive brand from which to compare?  The only answers I got from the evening is which brands we should purchase where the least expensive were truly bad.

Before the big tasting tests
Taking eating seriously

Most people guessed the drink just by looking at them.  Coke won over Pepsi.


big difference in the chips
