We are blessed! For the third year in a row, since my own Baptism, we are pleased to host the Missionaries and extended family for Thanksgiving!

November 24, 2014 Missionary Prep Day

Every so often we have the great pleasure of hosting the Zone Missionaries for their Prep Day in the California Fresno Mission! This is such a day between their getting their needs fulfilled (Laundry and Groceries), and getting back to the Mission later that evening. This day we were allowed to show them the LDS film Ephraim’s Rescue of which they thoroughly enjoyed while sharing several pizza’s we provided for their time with us. We do this often to give them a taste of home…as these young adults have come out to work the Mission of Jesus Christ for a few years, leaving all their comforts at home, wherever that may be in the world. There are several countries and continents represented by these amazing Missionaries participating this day. We are blessed to have them with us!
