Pres. Risenmay teaches the sisters how to safely use the eclipse glasses for tomorrows event.

The sisters are amazed at the show...they noticed the temperature cooled, the shadows lightened, and their scence of communing with nature was heightened!  Amazing day!!

The sisters love this part....They make a wish for the future, then send their balloons up through
    the glass ceiling, which theyve opened for them, thenwatch them fly into space...

Sister Torres (Mexico) and Sister Chang (Taiwan)
West 2 Zone spent their time at D.I. sorting  and serving however the
store needed them to...these sisters were in charge or sorting stuffed animals into colors
.

Service Projects...a very important part of
                                   Missionary Service.  They are assigned up to four hours at a certain                                                   predetermined site once a transfer, to pull weeds,  sort items, serve up the
                             homeless, rake rocks, plant plants, paint garages and curbs, or anything else
                             the Sr. Couple (in this case the Heeschs) can get approved by the presidency
                             to do.  The blog will be dotted with pictures of their hard working experiences
                             due to the fact that the sisters are only allowed to email in their pictures to the
                             blog on their own P-day.  We'll show you when we get them!!!!!
Our new Relief Society President, Sister Newlin,  and her Counselor (Companion),  Sister Burke.

 The Sisters have access to many less requested Book of Mormons in exotic languages most of
us have never heard of before.
Examples:   Amharic, Aymara, Bikolano, Cakchiquel, Chuukese, Efik, Guarani, Igbo, Ilokano, Kekchi,
Kiribati, Kisii, Mam, Niuean, Palauan, Quichua, Sinhala, Tzotil, Urdu, Waray, Xhosa, Yoruba.

These are just a few.....did you recognize any of them?
Yes, we know the Lord God loves his children, and they are ALL  important to Him.
The WORD will be introduced to ALL nations and to ALL people in their own tongue.

      A family brought in a wonderful dinner
      for all of the sisters on a Sunday evening.
      They had salads and rolls and pulled pork
       and dessert.  What a bolster to the sisters
       moral this was.  This time of year they
       very tired and not having to fix a meal
       serves them well!








                        Did
     we
    say    
    tired????????
                 
                                                Sister Sneddon and Sister Herr
                                   Two German Sisters share a sidesplitting experience with
                                  each other having to do with a language glitz with a tourist,
                                 the visitor asking if Joseph Smith was Irish.  Hahaha..I guess
                                one must know German to appreciate this humerous question!


           

                                         Occasionally we are reminded of what a small world
                                     we live in..Sister Romney was called to work at Temple Square
                                  where her fathers sister, Sister Spencer, was already working as a Senior
                               Missionary!!

 We all feel very blessed to have President Risenmay to lead us, teach us, and answer our questions.
  Some of us missionaries have  joined the Church a very short while ago and have many things
  we want to know about.  Pres.  Risenmay is an avid reader and historian so we enjoy the additions
  from historical events to go along with the scriptures we study daily.  His iron clad testimony gives us added strength and knowledge in our preparations to meet and teach people from all over the
  world.  WE ALL LOVE PRESIDENT AND SISTER RISENMAY!!

          Elder Spencer teaches us the easiest way to move apartments using only sealed boxes, large plastic bags (for light items), and suitcases.   We must be  good drivers and passengers. " SLOW IS BETTER" and "STOP" are important phrases we learn!! Three point parking in the tiny  D.A. parking garage is a must.   Being on time is imperative !
          Budgeting is taught, hoping we can make it to the end of the month with money still in our accounts!!
