From Selah, we drove to Cle Elum to visit with our Elders serving there. Cle Elum is in the Selah stake at the far eastern side of our mission. It’s up in the Cascade Mountains, a beautiful resort-ish area on the road to Seattle. In the summer, the population explodes. Fow not, it’s still a sleepy little mountain town.
Here is the Branch building. Elder Ranta and Elder Hanna, serving in the Cle Elum Branch. Elder Ranta: People would say I’m confident and hard-working. Elder Hanna has a really really good smile. When he’s comfortable, he’s warm and welcoming and can be a fun goof ball! His brain is like a computer–he has an excellent memory, especially with maps and remembering conversations.
Elder Hanna: I enjoy good things about everyone. Elder Ranta is very good at helping others feel comfortable in a very non-threatening way. He’s positive and good. He builds others up and is a people person. He’s full of positive energy. He does a great Batman voice and tells silly stories.
