We felt privileged to have a part in teaching Dave Thomas and witnessing his baptism. He asked Rob to baptize him, however Elder Hales filled in since Rob (elder Zollinger) was still recovering from carpal tunnel surgery. Dave asked me to speak at his baptism which I was happy to do. Dave's journey began when he was given a blessing at a time when he was ill. He felt the Spirit and wanted to learn about the gospel. He is now a changed man. So happy for him.

I love to bake! I'm always "on the lookout" for extra special recipes. These bran muffins are superb. We eat a few and share the rest. These muffins were shared with the Yoes (a couple we visit who have become dear friends). Missionary work is furthered by sharing baked goods for sure!

We enjoy and have so much admiration and respect for all of these outstanding young missionaries. They serve with all their hearts and give their best. Monday's are sometimes transfer days. From left, Elders Etherington, Jarrard, and zipper are staying, and Elder Borden (from Pearl City Oahu Hawaii) is being transferred to Corvalis. We will miss Elder Borden. He is quiet and humble. He says beautiful prayers.
We always enjoy attending Zone Conferences. This one was especially good as we become better acquainted with all of the missionaries. One segment of the meeting featured showing the DVD "Infinite Gift" which was so powerful. We loaned the DVD to President Russel and thought he might like it. He liked it so much he showed it to the entire zone! We learned new ways to teach and tried to take it all in.
