We're back !

We had a wonderful time, saw so many inspirational sights, and met WONDERFUL people. Landon and Christian Larsen (West Bountiful) were the youngest on the tour, and were treated so well by everyone. Christian has been called to Brazil for his mission, and will leave a month after Landon.

Landon also spoke in his singles ward today. He did a great job. Only 2 weeks.....time is short now.

Now we can relax......

It was a great day ! Everything went as planned. The talks by Landon and his good friend Mike Rose, and Bishop Birt were excellent. The music was beautiful, and the dinner afterwards was good. There was enough food (thank goodness), thanks to everyone helping out. Thank you all so much for supporting Landon and our family. Family and friends, co-workers and team mates, those who traveled from FAR and near. We love you all ! <

Time is getting short !!

Landon's farewell in his old ward is this Sunday at 10:50 a.m. in the Morgan 6th Ward (Porterville Chapel) located at approx. 2700 S. Morgan Valley Drive. We will have a luncheon afterwards at the Morgan County Courthouse, and would love to have everyone come and join us.

Zone Conference in Helena Montana

Landon and Gwen drove up to Helena on Sunday afternoon, arriving about 9:30pm. They visited with President Fisher at the hotel, and the next morning traveled to a church where the conference was held. There were approximately 18 Elders, 2 Sister missionaries, and one couple missionary. It was interesting to note all of the "practical" matters which were discussed, i.e. having $20 on you at all times (for emergencies), clean and trimmed neckline, insurance(medical) cards in order, watching a safety video (they had 5 wrecks in the past week),etc. There were missionaries of all shapes and sizes, tall, short, outgoing, shy, greenies (only in the field for 3 weeks) and one who only had 2 weeks left. It was great to share in the spirit that was there. We were treated so graciously, and were able to eat lunch with them, sing with them, pray with them, and share our testimonies with them. It was a great preview to what Landon will be experiencing soon. We left for home about 5:30 pm on Monday. Thanks again President and Sister Fisher - we love you !!
