President and Sister Erickson in the mission office. President Erickson in the Seventy's Hall in Nauvoo

Elder and Sister Dunn of the Seventy with us in Nauvoo.

This was a very satisfying leadership meeting. Each District was given a handful of tootsie rolls and then they needed to run through a course to the other side and hand off the tootsie rolls they had in their hand to one of their District members. They needed to get through a gauntlet of AP's and the President bashing them with pillows. Morale of the story, they needed to get the information from this meeting to everyone in their District. It felt good to be the deliverer.

My old softball games gave me alot of experiece of swinging hard and level. Tootsie rolls were flying everywhere.

Canton, IL fireside. This is where Elder and Sister Oliverson from our ward back home is serving. The branch has about 45 in attendance and it is growing with the help of the Oliversons.
Sisters Olson and Baker bowling with all the Elders on Preparation day. It was a formal affair for the bowling alley. Everyone was in awe of the bowling uniforms. There was some good conversations with others.
