When we arrived in Hood River this afternoon, we found this district hard at work digitizing area books. Some wards have years and years of records that need to be digitized, so those who are finished are helping those who aren’t. It’s a team effort.
Elder Jex and Elder Pruess, serving in StevensonElder Jex: I’d like to remembered for how hard-working I was, for how much I cared for people, and for how I listened to people.
Elder Pruess: I’d like to be remembered as an Eagle Scout who loves to do a good turn daily, as a hard worker, and as someone who loves the Savior and Heavenly Father.
Elder Mower and Elder Hancock, serving in White SalmonElder Mower: I’d like to be remembered as a convert helping others, just like the missionaries who taught me. I’d like to be remembered as one who loves his family and loves children, and as one who loves helping others.
Elder Hancock: I want to be remembered as tall, quick with a joke, and as one who loved reading books.
Elder Mower is a faithful journal keeper, like so many of these good missionaries!
Elder Horsley and Elder Petersson, serving in The DallesElder Horsley: I hope people remember my genuine love for others, my funny personality and my legendary stories.
Elder Petersson: I want to be remembered as diligent, helpful and loving.
Pres Lewis had his final interview with Elder Horsley this afternoon. He’ll be leaving us soon. Sad.
