Early Spring

These trees started blooming around the last of Jan.-1st of Feb.  We couldn't believe it  The daffodils came out the middle of Feb.  I was talking to a fellow and he said this was pretty early for things to start blooming.

Artist Elder Padilla

This is Elder Padilla from Washington D.C. he lives in our complex and is now our District Leader.  His father is the recorder at the D. C. temple.  He is also an artist, expert on bicycles ect.  Before District meeting he just started drawing this picture of Christ, it took him about 10-15 min.  You might have to get a close up by clicking on it a couple of times.

Elder Hancock was also there and when I wanted a picture he wanted me to take one of him also.  His picture is what he drew that he is pointing at with his left hand.  Crazy but fun Elders.

Our Zone

We were able to go to the temple and see the new film as a zone.  Yes I'm wearing a coat.

Just our zone at zone Conference.  Great Missionaries

Elder Wain from England.  He was serving in the 6th ward but since has been transferred.

Seals at Cambria

Calf nursing mom and seals going out to sea.

Cambria with Torgesons

Harvey and Jan Torgeson invited us to go with them for a couple of days to Cambria on the coast.  We stayed in the Gubler home there and had a great time.  One of the days was our P-Day.

 We're eating at this great little place by the ocean.

This is a picture of the Hearst Castle.  We were a long way away from it so I had to zoom it in.

I guess the Hearst love Zebra's because in the field they had these.  What a surprise.

This is at Morro Rock.  A man was just sitting there with a cookie and this bird came up and started eating it.

This is Morro Rock bay.  The rock is made out of granite I guess.  It was beautiful

Babies and Christmas

                                       Boy how these babies have grown.  This is Trey Graviet

                                           And Allie Jensen.  Aren't they cute.

This is Leah Lara and her father Carlos at Leah's baptism.  She had been 8 for about 9 months but she's doing it now.  This is the family we had a wonderful Home evening with.  They have 6 kids.

This is the day after Christmas in Visalia, Ca.  It got up to about 62 so it was pretty nice.  We had Elder Padilla with us because his companion had to go with someone that was sick so he came with us and we were looking for a lady out in Woodlake.  She is a member but hasn't made it back to church since she moved here.  We found her!!!

Christmas in Visalia

Andy Nava, the husband of our new convert that we've been working with for months, wanted to give us something.  This is the cutest  music box.  He is such a sweet man and needs to be baptized.
