We traveled to Sunnyside this morning so Pres Lewis could have an exit interview with Sis Van Orden after church. Sunnyside is always a delight to visit. It’s one of the places in the mission that makes missionaries cry when they leave. There were some tears today, and many were from members who had to say good bye to Sis Van Orden. What a great ward this is. They love missionaries in Sunnyside.

I learned today that there is an elementary school in Sunnyside that has 27 Kindergarten classes! It’s a Kindergarten School! Amazing. Sunnyside has about 15,000 people. During harvest that number goes up a few thousand. This is a great place to raise a family.
