|This is a happy man...he has waited so long to be a full time missionary!|
As mentioned in our last blog, the Anaheim Mission has a unique breed of missionary knows as a "Truck Elder" and they work with Elder Collett in setting up new apartments. At left is Elder Hollowell (who's favorite show is Duck Dynasty), center is Elder Dilworth (recently named "most likely to end up in jail" by a few sister missionaries), and Elder Bode (who's addition to the Word of the Week was "widjadidja". "You didn't bring your planner widjadidja?")

|This is what the parking lot looks like on transfer day and this is one of our favorite missionaries, Elder Munguia. He heads home soon and we will miss him. He's from Brooklyn, NY and is great at helping Elder Wade with his Spanish.|
|Beautiful Sisters Aholelei and Hawker. We're sure each of these sisters will get proposed to at least three times while serving their missions. (Its already happened once to cute Sister Hawker. )|
He just turned twenty and already owns his own business that he manages to keep running while on his mission. He recently purchased a lovely home that he will return to after his mission. He is a real go getter and also competed in triathlons before his mission. He is dearly loved and appreciated by all.

Here is a fun link to one of our Canadian missionaries. (Don't you think he looks Canadian?)
Elder Zahrabelny, our remarkable Ukrainian Dancer!
|This is the other Elder Wade! Go Max...we hope to be half the missionaries you are.|
Sister Smack received a special delivery cake from a missionary's parents.
(She met this missionary at the MTC and must have left quite an impression.)
If you knew how happy it made missionaries to receive care packages and letters, you would send them more often. They nearly die of delight when they get mail and are ecstatic when they get a package. It has given us a whole new perspective on sending mail to missionaries. We really had no idea.
