A Visit to Naches!

We attended church this morning in the delightful place called Naches.  It’s about 20 minutes from our home in Yakima.  These fruit stands greeted us as we approached town:2015-8-9 Naches (3) 2015-8-9 Naches (4) 2015-8-9 Naches (5)

Here is our ward building.  It’s located right next to the high school on a beautiful rise.  The church members here are Wonderful, Warm and Welcoming.  We loved meeting with them.2015-8-9 Naches (7)

Meet Elder Coy and Elder Watts, beloved missionaries in Naches.  Elder Coy’s hand ended up under someone’s foot at a ward activity on Pioneer Day!  He is now a bionic man with 14 screws and 2 plates!  It hasn’t slowed them down one bit!IMG_0211[1]

We pulled over for a few colorful fruit stand photos on our way out of town:2015-8-9 Naches (8) 2015-8-9 Naches (10) 2015-8-9 Naches (11) 2015-8-9 Naches (12)

Tonight we President Lewis and I were invited to speak at a Stake Missionary Fireside in Selah.  We really enjoyed being there with many of our wonderful missionaries and members from all the wards in our local stake.  We just can’t get enough of these missionaries.  They are like family to us.  We are also grateful for the kindness of our new friends here.

Here is a thought from President Lewis’s remarks:
In the October 2014 General Conference, President Uchtdorf observed: “The more we incline our hearts and minds toward God, the more heavenly light distills upon our souls. And each time we willingly and earnestly seek that light, we indicate to God our readiness to receive more light. Gradually, things that before seemed hazy, dark, and remote become clear, bright, and familiar to us.”
