On Wednesday Tim had the opportunity to interview Pres. Randall Bennett of the Russia Samara Mission for the Mormon Channel, the Church’s new 24-hour-a-day audio station. This is an episode of Into All the World which will be aired in the near future. Next week Tim interviews Kenneth DuVall recently returned mission president of the Spain Bilbao Mission (see the July 5th blog entry).
Deforestation Party @ the Taggarts
Last week-end we had a party for all the fellers. With four old trees in the back yard that were dying, misshapen or both we decided, with Joseph's insistence, that they had to go. With the help of Elizabeth and Denny, his Dad and Grandpa along with neighbors, friends and ward members we cut them down. When the County took away the dumpster all we had left was 3 of the 4 stumps. It was a lot of work but a great success thank to everyone's caring service in our behalf.
Stump Grinding Afterparty
With the trees gone all but the stumps, yesterday was the followup party of one. Tim and the rented stump grinder. Joseph enjoyed the show and Gloria supplied cold drinks and encouragement. By the end of the day all that was left was several piles of sawdust.
