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)

Another Walk Through the Moors & Ponies!


A messed up photo I took today through the trees that I turned into "art."
For I, the Lord, have put forth my hand to exert the powers of heaven; ye cannot see it now, yet a little while and ye shall see it, and know that I am, and that I will come and reign with my people.  Doctrine and Covenants 84:119
Walking on the moors
wind break at the top of the hill
rushing to see if I have something to feed them
Who will win the race?
getting closer . . .

Surprise!  This little one got my attention first.
The others tried to crowd her out because I was giving them dried grass to eat.  The grass isn't always greener on the other side, maybe, just dry and crunchier
Please let me in!
The others go back to their green grass and this one waits patiently for some attention
Still trying to get the yellow grass on the other side.  Maybe the saying should be changed to, "Da ya dunt 'ave, ya wonts."

This looks like a long forgotten headstone used for a fence corner post.
Some of these stones were used for fence posts, I guess.  It would be nice to know the history.
Another old headstone?  All around are crumbled stone buildings mostly grown over.  Who is to say there weren't houses and farm building . . . and people buried here?
A remnant of once divided farms.
Soon these trees will be leafed out.
The old horse that wouldn't visit me.  See Darwen tower on the hill?
Here is evidence of why the stone walls are not going to last forever.  The tractor must have bumped the wall, or someone was mischievous and pulled rocks down.
Free eggs?
The roundabout sign in front and evidence that the painted roundabout on the road is ignored as cars drive over it.  It serves a purpose of regulating the traffic flow as cars did yield to the car on the right as is required in a roundabout.
