Week 5 June 14 to June 21


We drove back to Lindon from Cedar City with a load of apricots and cherries we had picked for Susanne and the Teachers at the MTC. Changed clothes and headed to our afternoon session of tutoring. We gave all of our teachers a small bag of cherries that we had picked and washed for them. They really enjoyed them. It was great to see the big smiles on their faces when thanked us for the cherries.


We continued with our tutoring and for the devotional we had Richard G. Edgley of the Presiding Bishopric speak to us. He told a lot of great stories, but we had to watch it from another room instead of the auditorium with the young missionaries. They are trying to keep the Senior Couple health and not possibly expose them to the flu.

Wednesday – Thursday - Friday

We continued with our Spanish tutoring. The language is coming.


We went with our friends Chris and Rasheed Charles from England to Timpanogus Cave in American Fork Canyon. It was a great little hike up to the cave and was really fun to tour the cave with them. It rained on us going up and down from the cave but that was okay. The scenery was great and we had a great time sharing a little bit of the USA with our British friends. After the hike we went to Provo and ate lunch at a Chinese restaurant that Christina and Brian Wilson recommended. It was great and we enjoyed more stories about England and about what being a Mission President will be like for the Charles's


  1. Sounds like a great week! Hope Dan had a nice father's day! We didn't really know where we should send a card, sorry! We thought a lot about you guys though and hope you had a good day!

  2. Sounds like you guys are having fun getting ready for your mission. My parents are so jealous, I'm sure you guys going will get them going that much sooner!

  3. Susie Taylor, from Wisconsin . . . we got your letter the other day and I was excited to find your blog and read about your experiences. You will be great missionaries. Eric's parents returned from a temple mission in Montevideo last November. They loved it there! Our son, Nick, is about to turn in his mission papers. We are in for an exciting experience, I am sure. I will be checking your blog regularly.

  4. Hi Dan & Jan! Thanks for your "Christmas" letter. We were glad to see you last month! It will be fun to follow your mission, especially Josh who will probably be so excited to see pictures of Uruguay. Good luck! All our love~ Josh & Charissa
