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)

Giant's Causeway, Ireland

". . . for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.  2 Nephi 30:15

Another World Heritage Site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is Ireland's northern coast area.  I've already posted some of the places we visited there, but there are more to come.  The basalt stone columns left by volcanic eruptions 60 million years ago are a site to behold in the Giant's Causeway in County Antrim, Ireland.  You can see approximately 40,000 columns of basalt rock today.

We were fortunate to have very little rain throughout our two-week travels throughout England, Scotland, and Ireland.  It was raining a bit today.

Green, green Ireland on the trail to the causeway.
