Elder Oliverson and Elder Hamblin, serving in the Yakima 3rd WardElder Oliverson: 3 things I love best about living in the WYM are 1. The greenery–it’s so green here! 2. The people–how nice they are–some even listen to us! 3. The Crazy People–you get epic stories to tell your children!
Elder Hamblin: There are interesting/crazy people on the streets, we get funny stories. It’s a beautiful place with lots of trees and good weather. I love being surrounded by people who care about me (missionaries and members).
