I served on my mission from July 1974 – July 1976. I was called to the Dakota-Manitoba Mission, which was changed to the South Dakota Rapid City mission. I spent half the time on Sioux and Mandan Indian reservations and half in small towns throughout North and South Dakota, Eastern Wyoming, and Western Minnesota. I have ended up being a perennial student, earning a BA in English, MA's in English and Philosophy, and a Juris Doctorate. Hoping, before dying, to publish a few things here and there!
I am currently an undergraduate at UC Berkeley studying BioChemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology. I began my mission in Tucson, Arizona where I waited three months for my visa to finish the rest of my 2 years in what was the Mexico, Hermosillo Mission (now the Mexico Hermosillo, and Ciudad Obregon missions). I served in Hermosillo, Nogales, Navojoa, and Puerto Peñasco (aka 'Rocky Point') and was a full time missionary from August 11 2010 – August 13 2012.
Current UC Berkeley undergrad studying Chemical and Nuclear Engineering. I served my mission from Aug 11, 2010 to Aug 13, 2013. My first 5 months I served on Vashon Island and Burien (Spanish speaking Seahurst branch) in the Seattle, Washington Mission. Then I finished out my mission in the Hermosillo, Mexico Mission in state of Sonora, which borders Arizona to the north and the Sea of Cortez to the East. I served in Navojoa, Obregon, and Nogales.
I served in the Singapore mission from 2008 to 2010. I spent time in Kuala Lumpur, Sibu, Kota Kinabalu, Kuching, Bintulu, and Singapore.
I served 06/09/1973 to 06/09/1975 in the Thailand, Bangkok Mission. President Paul and Betty Morris presided. It was a time set aside to serve others without regard to my own needs or desires. The best of times with wonderful companions and friends. Now, some 40 years later those are still defining days in my life. Since then, I married Claralyn Tanner, we had six children and they now have provided us with 10 delightful grandchildren with one more on the way. Currently we are living in Laguna Beach, CA.
I served in the Singapore Mission (Singapore and Malaysia) from July 2007-July 2009. I served in Kuala Lumpur Branch, Klang Branch, Bintulu 2nd Branch, and several Singapore Wards.
