When we first heard that the Lord was hastening His work, I did not realize how personal that would feel at Adam-ondi-Ahman.  The days pass so quickly and making blog posts seems closer together than once a week! This week was mostly business as usual. For Darrel that meant preparing for and pouring 23 yardsContinue reading “October 17, 2021”

OCTOBER 10, 2021

Today is my mother’s 88th birthday. I think of her often with gratitude for the beautiful childhood I had and the gifts from her that bless my life each day.  It is also the culmination of a week of memories that will warm our hearts forever. Tyler and Katie and their children flew in onContinue reading “OCTOBER 10, 2021”

This is another early surprise post.  My nine-patch quilt is done, and I will pick it up from the quilter this morning. We have Katie and Tyler and their family flying in this afternoon, plus it’s conference weekend!  We’ve anticipated this day for weeks.  One of the fringe benefits of serving at AOA is thatContinue reading “October 2, 2021”

We didn’t get far from home this week by choice. There is so much right here that offers satisfaction, peace, and true joy, that we’re pretty content to simply enjoy it. Monday a few West Mountain friends from Utah stopped by while on a Church History tour. It was fun to watch Darrel and hisContinue reading “September 26, 2021”

Our mission statement is “To beautify, maintain and improve the land and our lives.  To make both presentable to the Savior.”  There are ample opportunities every day to do both.  Miracles are a part of life here in each area. A few weeks back, communication between the wells and the water plant became sporadic. AboutContinue reading “September 19, 2021”

It is impossible to share all I’d like to about what we’ve learned and experienced this week in a single post.  Monday was Labor Day and the missionaries gathered for a tin foil dinner at the “beach” that evening.  Tuesday and Wednesday were business as usual.  Darrel mowed both days.  On Wednesday I worked onContinue reading “September 12, 2021”

Our report this week spans to two Sundays.  Church services here are at AOA are spirit-filled and insightful. It was wonderful to share that experience with Jordan, Andrea, and Hyrum last week.  I ended up teaching section 93.  A couple of quotes I came across in my preparation have given me cause to reflect againContinue reading “September 5, 2021”

AUGUST 28, 2021

Surprise!  This week’s post came on Saturday rather than Sunday. Elder K and I are picking Jordan, Andrea, and Hyrum up at the Kansas City airport this evening and our time for a few days will be spent sharing with them as much as possible about this area. We are so excited for their visit.Continue reading “AUGUST 28, 2021”

August 16-22, 2021

August 22, 2021 First,  a quick addition to last week. Sunday evening Elder Kenison and I took a drive to see the 10-acre sunflower field near Richmond, Missouri. We’ve heard that the flowers are not as tall and spectacular as last year, but we found it was well worth the drive for us.  It wasContinue reading “August 16-22, 2021”
