Missionary Day Report '09

We had nine young men that participated in the Annual Stake Missionary Day yesterday. Zach Gubler led our Ward with 12 door slams. He also had many other interesting experiences as well. Alex VB, and Hayden Miller were actually taught door approaches by their Elders and we very successful in their endeavors. Alex was able to schedule an appointment for someone to be taught, and Hayden placing a Book of Mormon. It was a great experience for the boys.

Nice pic of Carson Whitlock and his companion, Schriver Christianson of the Santa Rosa Ward, with Elder Goff, tracting down a street in Palm Desert. In total over 500 contacts were made, and 81 lessons were taught by the entire Stake during the event.

Temple trip coming up

We have another trip to the Redlands Temple on Friday, October 30. We will meet at the Stater Brother's Shopping Center parking lot at 4:00 pm. It is always a great experience to go to the Temple. Last time we went in August we had three Young Men go for their first time. (Jared Broadhead, Nathan VanBuskirk and Carson Whitlock) This time it will be Tanner Doria's maiden voyage so to speak. We should be coming back around 10:00 pm.

Congrats to Nick Broadhead, our newest teacher. Nick, you have the responsibility for bringing the bread for the month of November. Make sure that you are there 15 minutes before church starts to help prepare the sacrament.

Thanks to Thomas Halpenny for bringing the bread for the month of October.
