Today we began another round of interviews throughout the entire mission. We started in Moses Lake bright and early with these beautiful Sisters. This time while Pres Lewis interviews each missionary, I’ve decided to visit with them about the Book of Mormon. I’ve got several pages of handouts for them, as always. It’s interesting to hear each describe to me how they came to know the Book of Mormon is true.
My question for each this time is, “What are 3 interesting facts about you?”
Sister Jensen and Sister Wadman, serving in Moses Lake 2nd and YSA WardsSister Jensen: I am legally blind (I started wearing contacts in about the 3rd grade). I’m an abnormal contortionist. I’m 5’3″ but I tell people I’m 5’4″.
Sister Wadman: I’m terrified of ET. I can shake my eyes. I love bruises (battle wounds that go away).
Sister Rose and Sister Crookston, serving in the Moses Lake 2nd Ward, West areaSister Rose: I don’t have a left pinky knuckly. Organizing is one of my favorite hobbies. I like oatmeal raisin cookies.
Sister Crookston: I want to be a novelist. I was a drum major for 2 years in high school. I played soccer for 12 years.
Elder Hamblin and Elder Coker, serving in the Moses Lake 5th WardEldElder Hamblin: I can bend my pinkies and thumbs back to touch my wrist. My right foot is shorter/smaller than my left foot by an inch. I know how to juggle really well (from my years as a lacrosse goalie).
Elder Coker’s planner:
Hermana Burrup and Hermana Lin, serving in the Moses Lake 1st Ward and 9th Branch, southHermana Burrup: I do not like tacos. Or baked potatoes. I am serving next door to my home town (Kennewick). I love volleyball!
Hermana Lin: I’ve lived in Taiwan 6 years, Canada 2 years, and the USA 14 years. I once got 4 shots in one arm in one day and I didn’t cry. I don’t know how to swim.
Elder Reusch and Elder Buchanan, serving in the Moses Lake 9th Branch, centralElder Reusch: I’m not from Utah (I’m from Indiana). I’ll go home exactly 3 years after being baptized. I was scared to death of the water until I was 12 and then I was a swimmer in high school.

Elder Shoemaker and Elder Klossner, serving in the Moses Lake 9th Branch, northElder Shoemaker: I like hearing my sagacious, melliflous remarks time and time again. I am and am not an open book. I model my personality after that of a tiger and a house cat. A tiger because they are strong, methodical and observant and they like watching more than acting. A house cat because they go from sitting and napping in one sunny window to sitting and napping in another sunny window. And they love to have their backs scratched. I also served in one zone for one year!
Elder Klossner: I have an identical twin but I am 1/2 inch shorter than he is. I’ve lived in the same house my whole life (in Salt Lake City). I was majoring in business before I went on my mission.
Sister Richmond and Sister Castle, serving in the Moses Lake 4th & 7th WardsSister Richmond: I am very, very good at whistling. I’m left handed! I rode a bright yellow bike to school 1.5 miles every day for 3.5 years.
Sister Castle: I’ve taught piano lessons for 5 years. I was learning Spanish, German and Danish before coming out on my mission. My dream place to live would be in a cabin in the woods with my own personal lake.
Sister Baggett and Sister Tenney, serving in the Moses Lake 11th WardSister Baggett: The weirdest thing I’ve eaten on my mission is a worm. I can talk really fast, and a lot. I’m basically a Rapper. I like to sing.
Sister Tenney: My secret talent is the claw machine game. I can say the alphabet backwards. I am majoring in music education.
Elder Anderson and Elder Bird, serving in the Moses Lake 3rd WardElder Anderson: I love to hunt elk. I love to rock climb. I love to snowboard.
