Hey family, where did July go?
Week 2 in Chelan has been splendid! I got lucky with the shuffle, and scored a second zone temple trip, so we went there on Tuesday o' course. Things are going good here, Bishop unveiled a plan to revamp the spanish membership. The goal is to make it a branch, we're going to start doing activities every week for los hispanos and giving them there own sacrament meeting in the relief society room again. So we're excited to see that happen. It's that kind of concerted effort that makes things happen.
We had the pleasure of meeting the Fournier's. Anyone meet any fournier's down in AZ? They moved from Mesa a while back. Bro. Fournier got baptized here a couple of months ago, and his wife and kids are joining him soon. They are a wonderful family. Their son is a prodigy pianist, actor and baseball player. One of those people that make you want to develop your talents more.
They're awesome though, Bro. Fournier works as a school teacher during the year, but during the summer, he's been working at blueberry hills, apparently a blue berry farm with a restaurant. Sounds like they have some good food. They gave us a tub of blueberries, some of them the size of grapes. They were delicious, and "full of anti-oxidants" :)
We also had a zone conference, in which they had me bare my final testimony, I shared a realization I had, the lord needs his missionaries a ton, but he needs his Returned missionaries just as much. I look at the great work Brian and Jordan have and are doing in there callings and see that.
We had our Pioneer breakfast at the church on saturday morning and had a good turnout.
All is well, all is well
Have a great week everyone
