February 2019-Departing Missionary Temple Trip

Usually, our departing missionaries get to spend their last day in the mission at the temple. However, this transfer the Tucson Temple was closed for cleaning the week of transfers.

With that, we took the missionaries to the Gila Valley Temple (the other temple in our mission) the week before they left.

Tucson Rodeo Parade: Mormon Battalion & ATM Missionaries

February 21, 2019

President Browning;

Thank you so much for allowing some of our great Tucson missionaries to participate in the Rodeo Parade this morning. I’m glad the weather held out and they didn’t get drenched! From all accounts, they seemed to enjoy themselves and there couldn’t have been any better representatives of the original Mormon Battalion.

Attached are some pictures you might enjoy. What is not shown in the pictures is a wagon drawn by two horses and carrying the Tucson Mormon Battalion Brass Band playing period music all along the route. Also, there were two of the elders assigned to walk alongside the horses for safety sake.

Thanks again for providing these fine young men!
