A Baptism we looked forward to and were so happy to participate in - Casey's!

Casey with us. We had such a good experience teaching him.

We had to add a picture of Casey with his best pal, Jacob.

Temple trips since September 2011 (I know, I'm a slacker about this blog.)

We were all tearing up from the sun in this one with sister Cottle and Sister Puna'a.

The Mission Van Group! How would you like to be in a van with them for 3 hours? Good discussions.

Sister and Elder Murray (our super Office Service Missionaries) and their friend from Petaluma Ward.

Looking out over Oakland from the Temple.

A happy Zone.

Elder & Sister Simkins with the Bennett Valley Elders - Kunz & Kent. They work together in the Ward and Simkins are also in the office with us.

Elder Sproat, from Hawaii (one of our MTC Elders) Simkins and Elder Arredondo from Mexico.

Sisters Charles and Simnitt.

Sister Lewis from Pulaa.

Elders Vance & Noris. Yeah, Right! Elder Bittner looks smug because he was heading home the next week.

Waiting in Zones to have a picture taken with our visiting General Authority, Elder Grow and his wife. (See Sister Bunker's blog for the actual pictures. These next ones are of each Zone getting ready.)

Zone Conferences are always a great experience. We always look forward to hearing from President Bunker and seeing all the missionaries serving in Santa Rosa Mission. Because we are participating in each Conference by sharing information and inspecting cars, we get to attend all of them. During lunch, prepared by wonderful cooks in the individual Wards, everyone gets a chance to visit and share stories. Birthdays are celebrated with a song and homemade cookies from Sister Bunker. President Bunker announced my birthday a unique way... he said he saved the oldest for last because I was, hhmmm, 85! I had an orange in my hand at the time, and it took a lot of willpower not to throw it towards him. But, he is my President!

Sister Missionaries - I came home one day to find some "elf" had downloaded cute pictures for me. It's been so long since I added to the blog, these 2 have gone home and Sister Nestman is now Sister Menasco (one of our Elders).

Sisters Nestman, Luscher, Kahrs, and Tucker.

Sister Nestman and friend and Sister Kahrs and aaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!
