All missionary work is founded on the doctrine of Christ.  As we come to understand that doctrine, then all other aspects of missionary work and of growth in the gospel take their proper places.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday was Idaho Boise Mission's Zone Conferences. The Doctrine of Christ was the overall theme and we feasted both spiritually and temporally.
Assistants to the President, Elder Bowler and Elder Bird, led the way as testimonies were born and counsel was given.

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.
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.

 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.

As we remember with gratitude and pride all those who served and died for our country and for our freedom let us also give thanks for the "good news" of Jesus Christ. 
"Simply put, the good news is that death is not the end of existence, and our separation from God is temporary.  We have a Savior, Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God, who by His Atonement has overcome death and hell so that all will be resurrected and all who will repent and be baptized in His name may have place in the heavenly kingdom of God forever."
Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
