Missionary Housing Guideline for Missionaries:
Missionaries demonstrate gratitude to the members housing them by:
Properly protecting and caring for their homes.
•NEVER leave without making the beds and making sure the bedroom and bathroom are neat and clean.
•Clean the kitchen after EVERY use.
•Report damage or stains IMMEDIATELY to the member. Missionaries are to pay from their personal funds for any repairs because of their negligence.
•Turn off the lights, lock doors, and make sure the heat or air conditioning is set to the family’s instructions when leaving the house.
•If allowed to set the thermostat it is NEVER TO BE SET LOWER THAN 75 DEGREES IN THE SUMMER, OR HIGHER THAN 70 DEGREES IN THE WINTER.
•Closely follow the posted cleaning schedule and reminder of “House Rules”
•Neatly store personal belongings in designated locations.
Respecting their privacy and family life.
•Obtain the members permission BEFORE other missionaries visit.
•Use of areas in the home outside of the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom designated for missionary use is by invitation ONLY.
Acting as dignified obedient servants of the Lord.
•Be strictly obedient to the mission rules. Obedience brings blessings.
•Exact obedience brings miracles.
•Avoid loud and unruly activities.
•Share testimony and faith promoting experiences with members as appropriate.
•Express love, respect, and gratitude in word and actions. As appropriate, volunteer to assist with yard work on your preparation day.

Sister Anandan presented the Winders with a special necklace from her parents in American Samoa to thank them for their service.
Unfortunately everyone in our community knows someone who is battling cancer. It is a horrific disease that doesn’t play nice and spare even the littlest in our community — the children. Baldapalooza is a family friendly music festival organized to raise money to help Idaho’s children who are battling cancer. On Saturday we had the opportunity to participate with our oldest daughter, Andi, and her family in one of their fund raisers, the Bubble Run.
It wouldn't be Saturday without chores...
On Saturday evening Dave and Janie Pollmann's oldest grandson, Connor Nelson, received his Mission Call to the California, Sacramento Mission. He reports to the Missionary Training Center on September 7th. We are so excited for him and look forward to hearing of his experiences as he hastens the Lord's work.
