Today I talked with my sister, Janice. Jeff's torn rotator cuff surgery is taking a long time to heal.  He is doing physical therapy to help him get his range of motion back in that shoulder.  They are happy that the surgery was successful.

We went to see Ruth Melling about her great-grandson, Lennox.  He is Kaye's grandson, the son of Carly.  Gary Allen, Carly's husband is posting on their blog about the results of the surgery that removed a large tumor from his brain the first part of July.

lbj-lennox.blogspot.com   is the blog address.

I didn't take any photos today.

Sister Bonnie Jones, center, with her two daughters--Kylie Jones Pierce, left, and Kristi Jones, right.  President and Sister Jones visited our ward today for the Gorton's mission report.

 President Jones talked with friends at Burley 3rd Ward.
 Last week, Brother Eric Pierce called us in to tell us that on the ward records our names showed up as "members without a calling."
So he officially called us a temple preparation teachers, 
even thought we've been 
teaching the "Temple Preparation Class" for two years.
After our block today, Eric Pierce, 1st Counselor, and 
Dan Murri, 2nd Counselor, set me apart as a teacher
for the Temple Preparation Class.
Then they set Walt apart as a teacher for
the Temple Preparation Class.
 
 Then, now that we have become officially set apart,
the couple we teach on Sunday afternoons were 
not able to come today.
We will be teaching another couple on Thursday evening
their Lesson 1...so we are looking forward to that.

We pray you have had a restful and peaceful Sabbath Day.
As this Sabbath Day comes to a close,
we share our testimony of these truths...
Heavenly Father knows each one of us personally--by name--
and loves each one of us.
Jesus Christ is the First-born Spirit Child of our
Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother and came
to the earth in the Meridian of Time as the
Only Begotten Son of our Heavenly Father and
lived a perfect life.  He then gave His Life for us
so that we could repent of our sins,
be forgiven,
and work out our salvation by
following the Savior.
Because of the Atonement of Jesus Christ,
we can look forward to be resurrected.
And because of the Restoration of the Holy Priesthood
and Priesthood Ordinances, we can receive our
Endowment in the Temple of God and 
be sealed as a couple for time and eternity,
and having our children born in the Covenant,
so that we can be a family together forever in
the eternities when we keep that covenant.
Those who are sealed after their children are born
can have their children sealed to them in the temple.
These truths we believe were brought back to the
earth when Joseph Smith was sent to the Earth to
become the Restorer of all Truths.
This great event was ushered in when Joseph Smith
went to a quiet grove of trees in Palmyra, New York
in the Spring of 1820.
We also testify that the Bible is the word of God
as far as it is translated correctly.
The Bible is the Testament of Jesus Christ.
The Book of Mormon is also Another Testament of Jesus Christ.
Thomas S. Monson is the Living Prophet of God 
on the Earth today.
Of these truths we testify on this Sabbath Day of July 16, 2017.

This morning 










TThe WEPR Gathering has begun . . .
Steve and Natalie, Kimble and Carter were the first ones to pull in
about 5:00 p.m., followed within a few minutes by
Julie & John, Jacee, Jackson, Maddie, and Rigdon.

 Since the Friday before, Steve 'n Nat and the boys 
had driven 3,000 miles to Nauvoo and back for
a reunion with Natalie's parents on their mission there.
All of her siblings and families were there except
for Quinette "Q" and family
who now live in Australia.
Bert and Peggy Smith have 7 children.
 Instead of our traditional gathering meal of
"Stew and Scones" we decided to not heat up
our un-air conditioned and had everyone
eat supper at Taco Bandido.
Walt and I chose enchiladas and salad.
 Everyone is so kind to help Grampa    
to keep from falling.
 Kimble and Carter put up three hammocks.
The hammocks were a big hit.
Four of the guys slept outside. 
Janie and Sam were held up an extra hour
because of road repairs...just as they arrived
a new tradition was hatched...but Grampa
and I think it will probably be this time only.
They called Gary who was almost right
at the site of their teenage shenanigans,
so he rendezvoused at the 
KOA campground...Exit 216...about 8pm.
 ...to jump off "Gravity Bridge,"
you have to climb over a fence to get up
to Interstate 84 above.
 Then walk from the east lane overpass to...
...the overpass of the west lanes 
with traffic whizzing by at 80-m-p-h.
Right now--because of the bridge repair work--
the one lane was blocked off so they were
not in the traffic.
(That's why we think this is a one-time
adventure.  After the Snake River Bridge
is repaired, that lane will not be blocked.)
 Kimble and Carter did not pause...they were
up and over and into the canal--
even before Natalie could
take their photos...so they went back and 
jumped again.
Some took a little longer to get psyched up.
As Grampa said: "From the canal up to the
top...it does look the 40 feet it is.
However, from the top looking down,
it looks 400 feet!"
Natalie's count of "3-2-1-jump"
didn't do it for everyone, either.
 The 8 brave ones (or crazy ones)
who jumped are:
Gary, Janie, Sam, Jacee, Julie,
Kimble, Carter, and Steve.
