Dad's Rule!

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!  Elder Smith is the prime example of “practically perfect” in that category!  Love you Sweetheart!

The week began with quite a splash!  The Zone Leaders have volunteered to keep our front lawn trimmed.  We don’t think they had any idea what they were getting themselves into but..Monday morning bright and early they were out with the machetes chopping grass.  They took a basketball break and returned with a couple of branch missionaries for reinforcement.  Three large garbage bags of clippings later they were finished.  Then, things went a bit whacko!  The Sisters had been cleaning and they were all on P-day.  The Sisters decided to help the Elders cool off and a monster water fight ensued. 

You’ll notice that the pics are all from a distance as it was quite a war zone.  Elder Smith thanked everyone afterward for not only cutting the grass but watering it also!

Thursday was Zone Conference and our Zone sang “Love is Spoken Here”.  It was so fun to have soprano voices in the group and they hit some high notes at the end that were lovely. 
Once again we have a group of great singers!  If we can get it to come together we’re going to try to sing “Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho” for next ZC.  We’re reading the Old Testament as a Mission and when we read about Joshua we got inspired!  If we can pull it off it will be great fun.

I could use a good water fight right about now. Glad for days like that in the mix with serving the Lord.

I came across your blog while searching for the mission phone number so that I could send my son a package. He is Elder Adam Kuchar. Don't know if you know him, but I know Sister Frost. She is good friends with my niece. Just thought I'd say hello!
