More FREE stuff!

I have a habitual need to get rid of stuff. Instead of "Buried Alive" our TV show would be called "Stark Naked." Mark can't understand why I'm always getting rid of stuff, it helps me breath easier, I don't know, its a compulsion- one in which someone else benefits from, so whats the harm. Any way, Christmas makes me even crazier because I feel like I'm being suffocated by toys. I only post it on the blog when I think its nice stuff and hate to see it go to DI. Its like trying to find a home for a pet or something. This is all stuff from my old house. We have lived here for almost 6 years and its still not hung up, so I'm finally giving it away. I have: a white framed mirror with shelf- from Down East Home, a framed "Proclamation to the World" with dried flowers in the matte, a large wreath-green leaves, red berries- not christmas, a large wall hang clock- wrought iron. I also have boys valences with car and trucks on them and a couple other little home decor items. If you are interested, stop by and you can take what you want. thanks - michele reich

A word of caution

Two friends here at work have had their homes broken into so far this season. Times are very hard right now which will make people more desperate. Please make sure that your homes are locked, and that lights are left on when you are not home. Maybe even the TV or some music.

One of the friends had money taken, the other friend had medications at least moved. Please take precautions.

Also have a plan for your children if they are home alone.

Sorry for dismal news, but better to be safe than sorry.

I hope that you all have a safe, loving, jolly, merry and spiritual Christmas Season.

Love to you all,

Kevin and Debi Marriott

Wooden Art Easel (FREE!!)

I knew the word FREE would make you want to read this. I'm not trying to use this blog as my new "" but when I have nice items to get rid of (legos are not in this category) I would rather see if someone I know would like them first. I have a wooden art easel. It has a chalk board on one side and a wipe off board on the other. It has a roll of paper that comes out of the center. My kids never use it. Why use an art easel when my walls are a clean canvas for them. I have Picaso living right here in my home- he's two, he comes with the easel if you want. If someone wants this for a Christmas gift for their kids or for whatever let me know.

I Hate Legos!!!

My favorite sound on earth is the sound of a lego rattling up the vacuum cleaner hose. We have thousands, literally (this is thanks to my husband, who loves star wars and the four boys he has brain washed).I am going to get rid of about a garbage bag full, because I want to share the insanity. If anyone would like free legos to drive yourself mad, let me know. Of course the exchange must happen while my boys are at school and Mark is at work. They will never know- I could throw away three bags full and they would have no idea. If no one wants them I am going to throw them in the garbage can, maybe that will be my new favorite sound. Thanks much- call me if you want some- michele reich!

Great Pediatrician anyone?

If you love yours, will you tell me who & why?

The one we're with recently undermined our trust in him (I won't go into details here), and our baby may have some unusual health problems. So, like the dentist post... any suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Primary Program Practice....

Hey all...are you sick of hearing from me yet? :) Just a reminder that there will be a practice for the Primary Program on Friday at 4:30.

Suggestions, Please!

Hello neighbors!!  This is my first time writing on the neighborhood blog, and I think it's such a great idea!  Thanks for inviting me to it!

So, I need all of your expert advice...  We do not have a dentist in this area yet, since we are still relatively new to the area, and I need your recommendations on good, wait, no, not just good, but fabulous dentists in the area.  I have had amazing dentists in the past that I really trusted, but have heard horror stories of bad dentists that do work they don't need to, and so I really don't just want to choose any random dentist.  So, as my neighbors that have been here much longer than me, please comment on this post and give me your suggestions of who you go to and if you like them and would recommend them.  Also, my husband heard some good things about Stonehaven Dental from someone - does anyone go to them too and recommend them?  THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP! :)

Holiday Flag Service

Displaying an American flag on state and National holidays helps show our patriotism and that we are proud of our country. When groups display flags together is gives a feeling of unity. The Reich boys want to help make our neghborhood look more patriotic on National and State holidays. Here's how you can be a part of this:

Who: The Reich boys
when: Starting Feb. 2011, includes 8 holidays
what: An American flag
Where: Displayed in your front yard for the entire day
Why: The Reich boys are trying to earn money for their missions.
Cost: $30 a year (This is $3.75 per holiday.) We are providing the flag but the cost does not include purchase of that flag, just the service of displaying the flag in your yard.

To avoid confusion, the cost will be per year, rather than per holiday. If you would like to sign up for this service you can call 801-766-5180 or email us at . Your first flag will be put out on Presidents Day in Feb. 2011. Reserve your flag today!

Holidays Included:
Presidents Day (Feb)
Memorial Day (May)
Flag Day (June 14)
Independence Day (July 4)
Pioneer Day (July 24)
Labor Day (sept.)
Patriot Day (sept. 11)
Veterans Day (Nov 11)

Note: we passed out flyers, but there may have been some confusion because I put "does not include actual flag"- We ARE providing the flag. I meant that you are not puchasing the flag with the fee. The fee is for set up and removal of a flag we provide on 8 holidays a year.

First Dibs on Old Bedroom Set

This was my old bedroom set that has been wrapped in plastic and sitting in our basement since we moved here 4 years ago. :) I was planning to post it on KSL but thought I'd post it here for a day to give anyone in the neighborhood first dibs. It has 2 nightstands, a dresser, another dresser with a vanity, and complete queen size poster bed frame. I have a boxspring but not a mattress for it. We had an olympic queen mattress on it which fit fine. (The bedding is not my bedding of choice, but I wanted to show what the bed frame looked like. :) ) If anyone is interested in buying it let me know and we'll come up with a fair price. Thanks friends!

Stephanie Nielson, author of the NieNie Dialogues, is coming to BYU on Thursday!

NieNie Is Coming! Yep. Stephanie Nielson. And You’re Invited.

You heard right! Stephanie Nielson, author of the NieNie Dialogues, is coming to BYU!

11 x 17 Stephanie NielsonSo mark your calendar for Thursday, September 30th at 7:00 pm. The event will be in the Wilkinson Center Ballroom.

Stephanie is helping us kick off a new campaign here at Women’s Services called Recapturing Beauty.

Through experiences with hundreds of women in our professional and personal lives, we couldn’t help but notice that every single woman we knew had something negative to say about her appearance. What a shame! We are literal children of God. How can we have so many harsh things to say about the incredible bodies we have each been given? How can we reject these magnificent gifts with our nipping, tucking, molding, and controlling?

To combat the fallacies surrounding beauty, Women’s Services presents a series of events and support groups to help women live lives of greater fulfillment, at peace with their appearances.

Recapturing Beauty is a campaign to reshape our ideas and attitudes about beauty away from those promoted in our popular culture. The definition of beauty has been hijacked by a group of people and industries who have in mind profit more than beauty. We are sold ideas of beauty that are very hard to attain unless, of course, we have enough money.

When we make beauty exclusive and difficult to attain, it sets up a culture of self-loathing, competition and envy. None of these reflect the true nature of women.

Instead of embarking on more meaningful quests, we place our faith in products and images. Rather than loving our bodies and being peaceful, respectful and gentle with them we attack, manipulate and try to control them, never feeling satisfied.

Recapturing Beauty is about reclaiming the truth about beauty so that we can find peace and contentment in our bodies and in our lives.

Stephanie Nielson will speak about her experiences and how each of us can find beauty in ourselves.

The event is open to the public! Community members, men, women, students, spouses of students, people who have never heard of BYU—all welcome!! There is no need to register; just be at the Wilkinson Center Ballroom on BYU Campus on Thursday, September 30th at 7:00 pm!

Hallmark Family Tree- for sale

I have a Hallmark family tree, new in the box. I paid $40 for it (still have reciept). It's a metal tree that is meant to hang small ornamental frames with family photos in them. Its 23" wide and 22" tall. It can be hung on a wall or be free standing. It would make a great mother-in-law gift. I bought it for that reason and then another family member gave her one and now its been too long to return it. I also have several frames to go with it (11 to be exact, also new in the box). I paid about $45 total for all the frames. I am selling the tree and frames together for $40. So you are basically getting all the frames for free. If anyone is interested let me know.

Free Apricots

Last week, she gave us 4 bags and I was able to get 12+ pints of syrup and more fruit leather than I can remember! So, there are plenty here to make it worth a few hours of canning. (They're a little over ripe for eating, but still good for canning). I hate to see them go to waste! Please call me if you can use them!

If you would possibly be interested, please contact me (if you prefer a certain day-please indicate) so that we can start planning for it. More info to come....

Temple Dress

I have a temple dress I don't need anymore. I decided I'm definately a skirt person. Its a size Medium (those were skinnier days) and I bought it at Dressed in White. I haven't worn it much so its still in great condition. I was going to donate it to DI, but since its a temple dress, it seemed weird to do that, so I'd thought I'd see if anyone was in need of one. You can email me or call if your interested or just stop by and look at it. -m.reich (

Megan Wootten asked me to post this information. There is also a flyer with more information, dates and prices. Email me if you want the flyer sent to you.

There is a Young Single Adult in the YSA Lehi 31st ward that is sponsoring a Music Camp for children this summer. She is a very accomplished piano player and instructor. Could you please forward this to any in your ward/s who could gain benefit from top notch music instruction at a very reasonable cost? See the flier attached.

Not only will the children benefit from this greatly, but it will be assisting Alyssa to continue her music education at BYU.

Here are some samples of her music:

Wacky Wednesday- Splash Pad & change of plans for next week

Look who forgot to take her camera! What the! We had fun though, and I know Rhonda took some pictures so if I can swipe some pics from her I will post them.

Heads Up: Next week we were originally going to go to the zoo, but plans have changed. We are going to a park in Cedar Hills. It has a stream the kids can play in, plenty of shade, a playground, and areas that kids can ride scooters, bikes, skateboards, etc.

We will meet at my house at 10am to caravan. If you would like to meet there the park is behind the Cedar Hills Walmart (across the street from Loan Peak Highschool). When you turn East at the Walmart you will see a round about with an elementary school just beyond it. The park is connected to the elementary school.

Please help me spread the word, I would feel awful if there are those who could or would want to come and they just don't know about the activities. Thanks!

Wacky Wednesday- This is the Place Heritage Park

This is the Place Heritage Park is so cool! We had a great time, and for those who weren't able to join us, you ought to go up sometime this summer. Every Wednesday admission is only $2 per person. Here are a few pics, sorry to Kelly who had to leave a bit early, I didn't grab a family shot at the wagon with your cute crew so the picture of Sam will just have to represent. :) We also LOVED having Collette join us this week. It was fun to see how much Eli has grown!

This Wednesday we are heading to the Highland Splash Pad. Let's plan on meeting at the splashpad anytime between 10:30 and 11am. Wear swimsuits, bring towels and sunscreen, and a lunch. They have bathrooms there but limited shade. If you haven't been there before, turn right after the Wendy's and you will run right into it.

In Need of a Miracle

I know its strange sometimes to ask people to pray for someone they don't know, but I'm going to anyway. My dear friend has a baby named Annie at PCMC that is in need of a miracle. She has been there since birth and will be 3 months old this month. She just had her third surgery, the first two were open heart. She is critical and the doctors are asking her parents to make end of life decisions. Annie will most likely choose to stay or go in the next couple of days. She has had many wonderful blessings and because of this her parents believe she was meant for this life. So if you could keep her in your prayers and pray that she will begin to recover quickly, I know her parents would appreciate it. Her Mom keeps an amazingly beautiful blog if you want to read the whole story.

Free Rocking Chair

I have a black mission style rocking chair from gardner village. I had it on my front porch for a year or so and it did not weather so great. I never used it and am not willing to sand it down and repaint it. So if anyone is ambitious and wants it you are welcome to it. If you like the weathered look you could leave it as is. I will hang on to it for another week or so and then I'm going to DI it.
email or call if you want it.

Snowcone Syrup recipe

We just found this new recipe and tried it out this afternoon. If any of you are like us, we love our ice shaver / snow cone maker but rarely use it because the syrups are so pricey. We're pretty pleased with this recipe - yummy & cheap!

1 pkg Kool-Aid powder
2 c. sugar
1. c water

Heat everything together until boiling. Make sure the sugar dissolves. Cool in the fridge. (The original recipe suggests using a funnel to pour the syrup into a squeeze bottle, we used a dressing carafe.)

Wacky Wednesday- Lehi Round up Week

I know, I know, you are all impressed at how fast I am at posting about Wacky Wednesday this week. It was today! So we started out at the Sidewalk Party at Pioneer Party and we waited in a ridiculously long line for face painting. The kids didn't seem to mind the wait though, in fact, I think I was the only one who complained about it. :) After the mayhem there we headed over to Hutchings Museum, (which is rad by the way) and looked at stuff. We stayed for the reptile show at noon and to be honest, I didn't pay attention at all to the show. I was too busy yapping with all my friends. :) But the kids seemed to enjoy it. Thanks to all that came.

Heads up: Next week we will be going to This is the Place State Park. We are going to try to leave promptly at 10am, so if you are running behind make sure to let me or someone you know who is planning on coming so we don't leave ya. This is an all day activity, one of the few this summer. We loved it last year. Bring picnics, sunscreen, camera, strollers if needed, and some money. I will let you know how much admission is, I am going to try to find discounts first. Meet at my house at 10am.
Okay, I know admission is $9 for adults and $7 for kids (3-11) and that there is a buy one get one free coupon in the Happenings book, but I am really hoping that what Kelly said is true about Wild Wednesdays being only $2. I am going to call tomorrow, but in the meantime, locate those Happenings books. :)
Update: Yes, tomorrow is only $2 admission! yeah!

Wacky Wednesday- Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls was beautiful as always, and the bad weather arrived just as we finished lunch, so we lucked out! The kids loved riding their scooters up the path to the waterfall. We had such a fun group too! Thanks to everyone who came, you made it so much fun! (Even you Doug, even though you were the only dad to come. :) Lol)

Home Decor

I redecorated my guest room (my daughter made me since she took all of the furniture and it was now an empty room!!). Thus I have some bedding and pictures available. I have a cream colored/red strip duvet cover(you would need to add the down comforter, bed skirt in the strip, red and cream regular size toile pillow shams, larger pillow shams in the red strip. Also a valance, some accent throw pillows and a couple of pictures that go with the whole ensemble. It would be great for a girl's or teen's room, would fit a queen or double bed and it's yours for the taking!! Call Jan Beames at 768-0810

Baby Sitter Needed

Hi everyone. Cassie H., who used to be in our neighborhood, is looking for a babysitter for her daughter who just turned 1. Here's some info from Cassie:

It would be Monday through Thursday for about 6-7 hours a day. I never work holidays or Fridays. It would be between 8:30-9:30 in the morning to around 3:30-4:30 in the afternoon; however, my schedule is as flexible as I need it to be. I pay $3.50 an hour, plus more each month for food. Copper is an incredible baby; she's one now (well, in two days), and is independent in a lot of ways. She's walking, eats great, naps well, and is very good natured. Smart as a whip. I don't think there's a better baby around. :)

If you are interested, call or email Mary and I'll pass along Cassie's contact info.

yard/craft/bake sale

This is very short notice, but I thought I would throw it out there. My sisters and I are having a big yard/craft/bake sale on Saturday, May 15th. We are raising money for the American Diabetes Associations Tour de Cure. Several members of my family (including me) are riding in the Tour de Cure and we each have to raise $150. I might not be able to walk for a couple of weeks after the ride, but it is a great cause. :) Our Tour de Cure team name is Ride for Javin, Javin is my 30 year old brother who was married a couple of years ago and shortly after he got married found out he has diabetes. We are doing this ride for him. If you can come to the sale it is at 1049 W 1100 N in Orem (directly behind to the North of the new Winco). It goes from 7am till noon. If you can't make it, but want to buy some baked goods, just email me or call me with your order! :) I have been baking all day today and I have chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter bars, and banana bread, and my sister will have cupcakes and chocolate dipped pretzels. Thanks! Hollie 801-318-8976

Free Dollhouse

Also, besides the river birch trees, we have a large dollhouse we can't use. It needs a little work to glue some shingles and wallpaper back up. If you have a hot glue gun it will be as good as new. Weather permitting, we will put it out in front of our house this Saturday. It is a bit heavy and will not fit into a small car trunk; a small SUV should be fine. You can call if you would like to see it sooner - we don't want it out in the rain. The doll furniture can usually be found on e-bay. It is probably a good fit for Barbie dolls.

Casey and I have been struggling to grow things in our awesome clay like dirt, so we bought a huge dump truck worth of really good dirt from down by Utah Lake. We have used all that we need to fill our garden and flower beds and we still have quite a bit left. If you need some let me know and we will give you a great deal. :) We really need to get the dirt out of the cul-de-sac so the sooner the better.

Also, we have a pile of red lava rock that is yours if you want it. Just come and get it! Thanks!

Letter from Mission President in Chile...

Hey ladies, this letter is from the wife of the mission president in the Chile Santiago East mission. My brother served in this mission and it was forwarded to my mom. I thought it was neat so I wanted to pass it along. It is a bit long but well worth reading if you have time!

"Dear Everyone,

"I am writing to let you all know how very grateful we are for your prayers, concern, and love. Please keep praying! We need
the Lord's help and guidance in order to do all He would have us do to learn what He would have us learn from this earth
quake tragedy, and to minister in the way He would have us minister. During the past few days, we have witnessed many
events which serve to remind us that the Lord is in charge and that as missionaries and members of His church, The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we are performing His work, and as President Monson teaches, "When we are on the Lord's
errand, we are entitled to His help." I want to share with you a few miracles that will help you to understand our profound
feelings of gratitude.

"When we were set apart for this calling, Elder Scott of the counsel of the twelve apostles taught us many important lessons.
He spoke from personal experience when he was a Mission President in Argentina. One message that he shared with us is this:
"At times, during your mission, you will be awakened in the middle of the night or the early morning hours with thoughts of
specific things you should do for certain missionaries. Do not ignore these thoughts. They are promptings from the Holy Ghost
who will communicate with you in the stillness of the night or the peace of the early morning hours. He will speak to you then
because that is when you are still enough to hear." Elder Scott further instructed us to keep a notebook beside our bed so that
we could record these precious promptings. He said that by the next morning, we would be likely to forget the promptings if we
didn't write them down.

"We have been astonished at the fulfillment of Elder Scott's prophetic words. We have received many promptings in the exact
manner that Elder Scott described. We are so thankful that Elder Scott taught us how to recognize and act upon these
precious promptings. Had he not taught us, we may not have given these promptings the attention they require.

"Nearly two and one half weeks ago, I was awakened at around 4:00 AM by just such a prompting. I did not hear a voice, but
the thought was as clear as if it had been in the form of spoken words: "There is going to be an earthquake. Prepare your
missionaries." I sat up in bed and immediately remembered Elder Scott's counsel. That morning I told Larry what had
happened. He immediately set to work organizing our missionaries to prepare for an earthquake.

"In talking with our office missionaries to arrange for them to put together a list of everything we would need to
both Spanish and English...we discovered that the Lord had also let two of our office missionaries know of the possibility of an
earthquake (in the form of dreams) and the need to prepare our mission. We set a goal and arranged our schedule so that we
could visit every apartment in the mission to check for safety and to review with our missionaries what to do in case of an
earth quake. What a wonderful experience we have had as we have met with them and shared scriptures with them about
being spiritually and physically prepared. "...if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear" (D&C 38:30). We instructed every missionary
to have a "go-bag" (36 hour kit). We reviewed our emergency action plan with them of where to go and what to do if they had
phone service and in case they did not. We gave everyone a paper with all instructions in English and Spanish, and !
we reminded them that "this life is the time to prepare to meet God" (Alma 34:32-34). We shared with them our thoughts
and feelings about the need for spiritual and physical safety. Some of them became frightened and asked us if we knew
something they didn't know. We smiled and repeated "...if ye are prepared, ye shall not fear." We didn't want to unduly alarm
them, but we did want to impress upon them the need to be prepared. We tearfully reminded them of our recent transfer
conference where we had shared our feelings about our dear Elder McKay Burrows who was unexpectedly called home in
January while serving his mission in he was prepared in every way to meet God. We reissued our challenge to
"be prepared" in every way. Then we knelt with them in their apartment and dedicated each apartment, asking for a blessing
of safety and security to be upon every apartment.

"When the earthquake came, we were prepared. We did not experience the panic that many felt. We knew we were prepared.
Because of the words of the Lord's chosen Apostle, Elder Scott, we had listened and heeded the quiet, but clear promptings of
the Holy Ghost. We were blessed with peace in the midst of chaos. We learned an important lesson: our preparation helped us
to avoid panic and fear, but the Lord, in His wisdom, allowed us to experience enough discomfort to know that He has all
power. He is in charge. We are nothing without Him. We are dependent upon Him for every breath we take. Only He can save
us from death and destruction. He is the way, the truth, and the life. He is our perfect example. If we follow Him, we will be
saved through obedience to the laws and ordinances of His Gospel.

As the earthquake became more violent, the mission home groaned and wailed. The power died, so the whole city was black.
The windows made a hideous screeching sound, and flying objects banged against swaying walls. The printer/fax machine,
books, book ends, and fifty-pound television burst from the entertainment center and crashed to the floor, cabinets emptied,
drawers flew open, the refrigerator moved, water sloshed out of the toilets, the floor jolted up and down as we ran across it
trying to hold onto the walls to keep from falling down, and the piano toppled over like a small toy. As we made our way to the
back yard, I remember thinking, "God is all-powerful. He is our only refuge from this horrible mess." I prayed and prayed for
Him to still the earth. When we reached the back yard, we watched in terror. By the light of the moon we could see the
swimming pool water form giant waves and crash out onto the rocks. House and car alarms screamed into the night...some
from b!
eing crushed by falling debris and others I guess from the bizarre movement of the earth. I am not sure if the intense
rumbling sounds came from the earth itself or from everything else that was shaking so violently. Finally, it stopped. When the
calm came, we had to sit down because our legs were weak and unstable. My legs stayed wobbly all day and night yesterday.
Today the muscles in my legs hurt like I ran a marathon. The aftershocks have been extremely unsettling. Each one begins
like the one last night started. We just close our eyes and wait to see if it escalates or dies down. I have never experienced
anything like this!

We were awakened this morning by a very strong after shock. Larry jumped out of bed and yelled, "Welcome to another
glorious day in Chile!" We just had to laugh. We moved a mattress into the floor in our bedroom and made Landon sleep in our
room. He was in his room with the door locked the night before and we couldn't wake him up. He never locks his door, but he
was playing a joke on Larry because every morning Larry wakes him at 5:30 AM for seminary by tickling him unmercifully. So
Landon had decided to stop him. When we couldn't open his door, in the middle of the quake, we thought he was trapped, so
we screamed and banged. Landon thought that everything was falling off the walls because we were banging so hard on the
door. I think we scared him more than the earthquake did!

Today, we attended a strong ward where Larry was invited to speak. The entire chapel and beyond was filled. People were so
humble and so teachable. Larry taught the importance of doing the small things. He taught about Jesus Christ and the
opportunity we have to love one another and to share what we have with others. It was a great blessing for us to be with
these beautiful Chilean people. Some have lost their homes...or at least parts of their homes. But they are strong and they
want to serve the Lord. He taught of the scripture in Luke 21:11,13 which says, "and great earthquakes shall be in divers
places...and it shall turn to you for a testimony." He also welcomed the sweet young woman who was in the congregation with
the missionaries...her first time attending church...and then he invited her to be baptized from the pulpit. He asked her to
please invite us to her baptism, and she said, "I will." The Lord always knows what His people need. Landon was reading in
Alma 15:17!
today. He said, Mom listen to this. This is what is happening here in Chile just like in happened in Ammonihah. The people
were humbled and "checked as to the pride of their hearts and began to humble themselves before God, watching and praying
continually that they might be delivered from Satan, and from death, and from destruction."

Our hearts are filled to the brim with gratitude for all of the blessings we have received in the Chile Santiago East Mission. We
see miracles every day. In the midst of great pain and suffering, we can always find our Savior. He stands with His arms open,
pleading for all of us to humble ourselves and come unto Him. He loves us. He invites us to accept His gift...the atonement. He
invites us to repent. He wants us to love one another and to serve one another. He wants us to bring our families and those
we love to Him. We can do it. We can do all that He asks, no matter how difficult it may seem. "With God all things are

OK, sorry this is so long. I will end now. We are having a devotional tomorrow for all of our missionaries to talk about the last
week of Christ's life in preparation for Easter. We want to remind our missionaries to teach and preach with increased vigor and
animo of Christ. Last Monday in our office meeting, Larry suddenly stopped in the middle, and said, "During the prayer, I had a
very strong impression that March 2010 is going to be our best baptizing month we have ever had in this mission." Now we
know why he received that feeling. We are going to prepare to bring many souls to the waters of baptism in March. Please
continue to pray for us and for the people of Chile. Please pray for the missionaries to have strength and courage to do all that
is being required of them, even in difficult times.

We are so thankful that the tsunami did not turn out badly in Hawaii. Who would ever think that an earthquake in Chile could
threaten the shores of Hawaii? Thankfully, the Lord is in charge. He is the one to whom we must turn for refuge from every
storm. He has the power to save us.

Con mucho amor,

President Larry and Sister Lisa Laycock
