missionary service

we are currently serving a 2 year mission, in the California Fresno mission. Elder Williams is vehicle coordinator, and sister Williams is housing coordinator. The picture with the four Elders, was our first assistance to the president that we worked with. Elder Assay, Elder Ure , Elder Alexander, and Elder Taylor. The group picture, were seated to the left of Elder Zabrowski, member of the quorm of the seventy. The mission van and trailer are much used vehicles for Sister Williams. The tagged car is one of the things Elder Williams deals with.... never a dull moment.

A new addition to our family.

What a blessed day! Our youngest was married in the California Fresno temple, To a beautiful young lady on June 11th 2011. We had all 6 children, and their spouses, in the temple for the first time. All 22 grandchildren were present (not in temple.... but running wild outside). Sean and Brooke are now residing in Provo Utah, and expecting our 23rd Grandchild. We have never been happier.

We've been busy to say the least!

Hope this works. Yes we're still alive. And we've been extremely busy. Dad recently put a new sink in the laundry room, with all the hoses, faucets, and valves. Hey it turned out pretty good. (and it even works) Dad also replaced all the faucets and the shut off valves in both bathrooms. He also replaced all the fixtures in the guest shower and tub. Now I couldn't have done this without Mom's help. We also removed a large dead tree in the front yard. We've cleared alot of trees in the forrest to expand our hay ride. (unhay ride). Friday we had two families from England stay with us. It has been a real treat getting to know them. There are 4 adults and 5 children. The adults are about 27 to 30 years old. Children are 4 months to 8 years. They have been jolly fun. It really makes us miss our own children and grandchildren. We had a great Thanksgiving and Christmas with our sweet families. We can't wait tell this summer. We would like to have our reunion July 23rd through the 29th. This works best for Ryan and Lacey and family. This year will be SUMMER FUN AT GRANDMAS AND GRANDPAS. (WITH LOTS OF SUN) More details to come. Hey we forgot to tell you we took out the doughboy pool. We now have a very large hole in our back yard. We have some fun stuff planed for it. Stay tuned. Seany recently got transfered to Vila Brasilia Goiania. Only his 2nd area. He has a companion from Texas. We'll try to post some recent pictures but first things first. We love ya all, talk to you later.

Blog comments:

We're better at reading and enjoying everyone's blog, than blogging ourselves. We've tried to make comments on your blogs but our computer starts to load for a comment but never finishes it. It's got to be the computer ?? If any of our kids would visit us, we could get personal tutoring (Angela and Nate exclused). We offer a great bed and breakfast-lunch-dinner deal. We're going to try to put a picture on this. Hold on! SORRY DID'NT WORK !

Called to Serve

We can't believe our baby is leaving on his mission! We are so blessed to have a whole family full of righteous people! Sean will be leaving for his Brazil mission on August 7.

It takes time to create!

Thank you so much for helping us with this new experience. This is going to be fun. It will encourage me to be better on the computer.(I won't have to do much to do better) Be patient with us, it takes time to create. Now for words of wisdom- We are preparing to teach the plan of salvation . In a talk given by President Boyd K. Packer ,talking about our second estate he said "If you expect to find only ease and peace and bliss during act 2, you surely will be frustrated. You will understand little of what is going on and why things are permitted to be as they are.Until you have a broad perspective of the eternal nature of this great drama, you won't make much sense out of inequities in life. Some are born with so little and others with so much. Some are born in poverty,with handicaps,with pain, with suffering. Some experience premature death,even innocent children.( here comes the best part) DO NOT SUPPOSE THAT GOD WILLFULLY CAUSES THAT WHICH, FOR HIS OWN PURPOSES,HE PERMITS.When you know the plan and purpose of it all,even these things will manifest a loving Father in Heaven" I know this is true!!! I love you,Mom

Can't wait to read your posts!

Hi Mom & Dad-
I am so grateful we have this avenue to keep in touch...

I think you should consider posting a "Words of Wisdom" section as well.... things you study or learn for Seminary and can share to all of our benefit.

Mom mentioned HS pictures and and your wedding picture! I love that idea. You need to take the pictures over to Nate and have him scan them in and he can email them to me and I will put them on your blog (or even give you a step by step on how to).

Anyhow, think up anything you want to put on here and we CAN do it! Yah.

I love you.
