Our next stop was in Moses Lake to visit with these fine Elders and Hermanas.
This is the Family History Library where the missionaries email home each week:Remember flip phones?? They are alive and well in our missionary world!
Elder Reusch and Elder Colunga, serving in the Othello Zone, Mattawa Waluke WardElder Reusch: The people here are awesome–super big families, and they drop everything to help us. Every area here is unique. I love the small town personalities. It’s the best mission in the world because of Pres & Sis Lewis.
Elder Colunga: The people are amazing–the members are super nice and willing to do anything for missionaries. I love the beautiful places (mountains, rivers, trees). I love that we have 4 seasons here.
We also feature slider phones:
Hermana Mangum and Hermana Shewell, serving in WardenHermana Mangum: The people here are great and welcoming and truly desire to be your friend and talk about your passions, such as the gospel.

Hermana Shewell: I love building friendships with the people, the changes in the scenery and the COWS!
Elder Kiser and Elder Aguilar, Zone Leaders serving in the Othello 1st & 4th WardsElder Kiser: I have a bunch of new best friends that I can visit whenever I want since I live so close to the WYM. I love the fact that I have Pres & Sis Lewis who are perfect for me. They have been so inspired for me specifically. I love the missionaries that were sent here to be the WYM–they’ve become my best friends.
Elder Aguilar: I love the agriculture (farming, fields and crops and the cows). I love having No Bills! I love the accents, or how people here say things: “a couple three” or “worshington” or “a worshing machine.”
Elder Christensen and Elder Hodges, serving in the Othello 2nd & 4th WardsElder Christensen: I love all the missionaries–the atmosphere, the same standards, the feeling of Zion and one heart and one mind. I love the people–the members are awesome, humble and hard-working. I love the beauty of the landscape of this area. We have mountains, flat lands, desert, rivers.
Elder Hodges: I love the members and their love for missionary work. I love the desire every missionary has to serve. I love the companions who want to work with everyone.
Elder Gaeta and Elder Horsley, serving in the Othello 3rd & 4th WardsElder Gaeta: I love meeting people, seeing people’s lives change and having crazy experiences/memories.
Elder Horsley: I love that we are a family. I love that “Yakima” sounds Asian. We get stuffs done here.
Pres Lewis and I are always trying to melt Elder Horsley’s set smile into a natural one. Today it happened!! Beautiful!!
