Son's baptism in Banning Building 19 Feb 2013
I just baptized my son in the Banning building font this past Saturday the 16th of Feb. 2013. It was the weirdest feeling because I baptized converts in that same font in late 1997/early 1998. I never thought I would be anywhere near the area again in my life but here I am living in Beaumont and baptizing my kids here - crazy!

Missing Mission Reaper 15 Feb 2013
There was a reaper sent out during Pres. Alexander's term probably during 1995 that had a list on the front page of things that have to transpire before the second coming. I have all the other reapers but lost this one. It might be a lot to ask because of course all mission memorabilia would be buried deep in a closet somewhere. But does anyone have it and could you possibly send a copy my way? My email is mkagren@gmail.com.

Thanks,

Mark Agren

questions about the mission 22 Apr 2011
I'm entering the MTC to go into the Riverside Mission on June 22nd. I wanted to know a little about what it's like there. (I know things change, etc... but) I'd still like to hear about some of the interesting things to see/do on P-days. Also, is this a bike, driving or public transportation mission? If it's a bike one, I wanna get started on some preparatory biking workouts.

Fresh from England 03 Apr 2010
Hi everyone, especially those who served between Feb 1995 to Jan 1997 under President Alexander / Brown.

As a new update on life in England - married for 7 years and we have had our 3rd baby last Nov - Candice.
Alexander has just turned 5 and enjoying school and primary, loves singing follow the prophet of late. Megan has just turned 3 and daddy's big princess (as I am sure all daughters are).

Linda is a teacher in RS. She didn't like RS before and I did forewarn her the Lord has a funny way of dealing with our likes/dislikes by calling us... and sure enough she got called into RS and has grown to love it and be a great teacher.

Having served as Ward Clerk for 2 years I am now 1.5 years into Stake Exec Sec. When I said 4yrs as a EQP was challenging, that is nothing in comparison to serving on the Stake. I guess it keeps me humble. We are also expecting Elder Cook (Q12) to visit in May so a lot to organise between now and our Stake Conference.

Our Stake is back up to having more missionaries serving out than we have serving in our Stake. This is really exciting to see and includes y brother Joe who is in Germany Hamburg Mission and my baby brother Travis just got called to the South Africa Cape Town mission.

Our Stake President has had a strong vision for the growth of the Stake which is coming to pass - in my ward alone we have had about 10 baptisms last year which is unheard of. The YSA programme has also taken a significant step forward with the 3rd Centre for YSA created in Bristol last year. The gospel is true and the field is certainly white. Our new mission president has said that when he was set apart by President Eyring that the promise that the Lord's work would take off as it never has before is now and to go to work. This is marvellous to hear that revelation continues and that we can all be part of it where ever we are.

The only thing I could really do with is more California sunshine, don't think my body can handle anymore snow and rain. So if you over that way, send a little sunshine to the UK too.

Best regards and love
James and Linda
Bristol, England

29 Palms missionary flat -- 6'x6' McDonalds sign 03 Apr 2010
Hi Elder Clements - about the 29 Palms missionary flat -- 6'x6' McDonalds sign. I definately remember the story going around the mission... but I am innoscent. The closest I got to 29 Palms was Indio, served there for 5 months in the summer of 95 and it was a hot one, 128 F was our hottest day. I do recall starting at 8:30 and taking 2 hrs in the middle day for lunch / comp study although I suspect it was an extra special case of Lehi's vision on that one occaision which in hind sight was heat stroke. If I remember right, Elder Haymore looked like a lobster too, not helped by our dedicated service being on bikes! Thinking back to missionary stories, I also remember hearing about 'Jump Qualification' in the high desert - either President Alexander or President Brown (not sure wish) got wind about it and a severe rebuking given at the next multi-zone conference. I am sure the heat did funny things to the brain, although I never did get around to cooking an egg outside - it was hot enough. Always did say after serving in the desert that if hell was anything like this, I wasn't keen on repeating the desert experience.

The Messengers 14 Jan 2009
I was a member of the Mt. Rubidoux ward, Riverside Stake in 2004. There was a group of five missionaries serving at the time who sang and called themselves "The Messengers". I have a copy of their CD that President Christensen (I believe) endorsed which has finally worn out. My CD player won't recognize it anymore. Does anyone have one that they can burn a copy of for me? This is my very favorite CD of all time!

FWD: Message from Fiat 28 Sep 2008
Hi there fellow Alums of the California Riverside Mission.

I have had this feeling for a while now and wanted to act upon it. I also need your help please in this event. I think it would be something cool for President Reid Brown. I spoke with him recently and I know he can use some "pick me up" moments in his life now.

I would like all of us to send him a small card. Don't worry about the cost of the cards or the stamps. I will personally take care of that. All I need is a little of your time in writing down some thoughts about the California Riverside Mission, your current addresses, and for you to send it to President Brown directly.

I will buy the cards and send it to you in pre-paid postage envelopes. All you have to do is write down some thoughts, what you are currently doing, your life, pictures, etc... and just send it to him on a pre-paid envelope.

I hope you all can participate in this. It will literally take 15 minutes of your time as you write and put this in the mail box to be sent out.

Please let me know what you think and let me know your addresses. I will try to have this sent out within a week.

Please forward this message to those that I do not have their addresses/info.

Sincerely,

Fiat Vongpunsawad

29 Palms mission flat -- 6'x6' McDonalds sign? 17 Sep 2008
I must say, we did some dumb things on the mission, but WHAT were we thinking? Does anybody recall the old McDonald's 'golden arch' sign in the missionary flat in 29 Palms?

I just got to thinking about our not-well-planned, not-well-executed idea of stealing that old sign and putting it in the flat, in hopes that it would become some sort of historic mission relic. We all signed our names as the 'founders' of the sign, and then showed up for church on Sunday, only to have to field questions from the local members, "What's the sign for?"

You could literally see the thing from the highway -- you know how a kid can spot the 'golden arch' for miles?

Surfing in the back of the mission truck on the way home, so that the sign wouldn't blow away, waving and honking at the locals as we did so. No wonder they thought us Mormons were crazy. I'll chalk it up to dumb youthful ideas and desert heat 'brain damage'. Maybe our brains were fried that summer -- it was a hundred degrees that evening (the sun was down).

Does anybody recall this? Are any of my co-conspirators willing to come forward? Any pictures or memories from others? Did the sign get thrown away/burned? (Bonfires were the P-Day 'eve' normal activity there, so I wouldn't be surprised.)

Looking for a companion 20 Nov 2007
Hi I am looking for a companion that I had in the Riverside area his name was Scott Hamilton. He had to suddenly leave the mission and I never heard from him again. I tried to find him and look him up and find out how we was doing, but I have never heard from him.

I served in the Jurupa stake in 1992 in the La Sierra Heights ward. If anyone knew him or knows about him pleas reply to my post or send me an email.
