We made a stop in American Fork to have dinner with some of our children and grandchildren. Got to see at least one new baby here. Have to wait until St. George and Alaska to see the other two.

Cancer Walk/Run for Sister Bunker

 President Bunker arranged for the entire mission to run/walk a 5K for Sister Bunker on the day and time she and her family was running in Sacramento.  Our Zone and Santa Rosa North joined together to go to Bodega Bay and Run/Walk for NO MORE CANCER! It was a surprise for Sister Bunker, a breast cancer survivor. She found out she had cancer in July 2010 - during their mission. She decided to stay and fight it while serving, knowing she would have the support of her family at home and her mission family. We love her!

We were able to get together each month for FHE or an activity. We would meet for dinner and then have a good discussion. Good missionaries!!!!!

Our last Mission Transfer & last Time at the Oakland Temple & last Time at the Oakland Airport.

Phil with Sebastapol and Stony Point Elders at the Oakland Temple.
Our last time at the Oakland Temple. It was spent with the missionaries from Stony Point, Elders Penman and Mathews and the Elders from Sebastopol, Elders Meriris and Lloyd.
The last Mission Transfer before we headed for home in May.  Some things you miss; some things you're glad to see over.

The trips to the temples were always great. Sacramento and Oakland.

Last Trip to the Airport

And we can't forget our last trip to take departing missionaries to the Oakland airport. It happened to be Elder Jensen, who was in our last group of missionaries we sent out from the  MTC Branch and Elder Pope who we picked up at the Santa Rosa airport when he came into our mission.
