And a second picture, because we don't want to leave out Eliza!

Be Prepared!!

Call Sister Green to order one for $25. Do not be caught unprepared! This is a requirement for each Missionary from our Area Presidency. Keep a case of extra water in your vehicle or apartment just in case. Sister Coleman and Sister Graham are getting themselves ready in Destin.

He now lives in Orem, Utah and just graduated from UVU Fire Academy.

He continues to serve as the second counselor in the Elders quorum presidency in the YSA Ward at home.

Everyone of us who knows, or served with Sister Garten loves her. She is a ray of sunshine, and valiant daughter of our Heavenly Father. Thank you Sister Garten for your example.
