Good News! 22 Dec 2014
"About a month ago while attending the Dallas Temple with four Elders in our area, I handed in requests to print 100 blue cards for male endowments. Unfortunately, the temple gave my 100 names to someone else!!! I could have reprinted them but felt like the Lord wanted me to be patient. It fills sometimes like I’m being set up for something but have no idea for what. Then last Friday morning, I got a call from the man who had my names. We worked out an agreeable plan to return my 100 names. ARE YOU READY FOR THIS? The man’s name is Bro. Loschen, who was baptized by ELDER LARSEN in Lewisville about a year ago and was taught by ELDERS STRATFORD, STUFFLEBEAM and ELDER HARMS. Bro. Loschen is the only member in his family and has over 8,000 names in his temple reserve file and is working hard to complete all of them. How would you like to be the Elder (or Sister) that was responsible for baptizing one man and touching the eternal lives of an additional 8,000 souls? If you know any of the above Elders, please pass “thank you” along to them." - Bro. V*

Location of Missionaries 02 Sep 2013
In 1976, I was an 18 year old, baptized in Lubbock, TX by Elder William Matthews and Elder Terry Maxfield. Since that time, I have served a mission, married in the temple and raised kids in the church. Would anyone know their current address and whereabouts? I would like to get caught up on the past 30+ years.

WHERE ARE MY '82-'84 TDM'ers? 22 Jan 2011
27 years later and suddenly I'm waxing nostalgic for my beloved fellow missionaries of the Great TDM! Perhaps it's because I just sent my second son to the MTC earlier this week. Perhaps it's because I'm nothing but a "miserable, deceitful wretch". That's how barber Floyd Lawson described himself in one of the greatest Andy Griffith Show episodes of all time and kind of how I feel for losing track of some of the most wonderful people on this planet. Hope some of you are still out there and ready to reconnect soon!

Brinley/Anderson Reunion 25 Aug 2009
20 year (more or less) Reunion - Ok everyone - I am willing to start the reunion organizing. Many of you are Anderson, but alot of us are Brinley too. Maybe we can combine? Here is another question - We will do an informal poll: Do you want to have the reunion at conference time, or plan it for the summer when more people may be able to come? Everyone give some feedback!

Hey! Has everyone seen Pres. and Sis Hanks in the May 2009 Ensign on Pg 77! It's a great picture and the perfect talk for them to be in.
Sarah Price Send Email
Hello 19 May 2009
Ok everyone that served under either Pres. Brinley his last 6 months as Mission President and Pres. Anderson, we crazy Polynesian TDM'ers from 1989-1992 (Elder Leilua, myself and Sis Tafili) want to have a mission reunion because we have not seen you crazy people since our mission days. (Did that sentence even make sense?) Guess getting nostalgic in my old age. Well, trying to get something together and will let y'all know when and where. And yes I still say y'all 18 years later. Send me an email if y'all get a chance or just reply to this message if you have current contact information for any former TDM'ers from 1989-1992 that have not registered on this website.

Texas Dallas Mission Song 19 May 2009
During a recent visit with the current mission president at a stake conference, President Smith indicated he has been trying to find the sheet music for the Texas Dallas Mission song. (Apparently this has fallen through the cracks over the years but he would like to get that tradition going again.) A few of us have searched and come up with the words - but as of yet no one has found any sheet music.

Is there anyone that still has the sheet music? I believe the sheet music would have been included in each missionary's mission binder provided by the mission president on their first day in Texas. If you kept that binder and all of its contents, then you probably have the sheet music. If so, could you scan it and send the pdf version to me as well as to Bill Marble. Bill said he could post it on this website for future reference.

Skousen talk from 1981 Christmas Conf. 01 Apr 2007
I have the DVD from the Skousen website. Not only is it a great blast from the past for the missionaries that were there, but they have added lots of pictures from Cleon Skousens mission also. I knew that they had recorded audio, but I hadn't known they had video recorded it also.

I believe that President Mathaney's first name is Oriville.. FYI here is a great link for all of you TDM'ers that were at the "mission conference" in December 18 1980 where Cleon Skousen spoke. If your cassette tape was lost, or mispalced you can get a cd, video or another cassette of that great event! Very Cool blast into the past!

RE: Pres Fisher Reunion? 20 Mar 2007
President Fisher is having a reunion. If I would have known that it wasn't posted on the site I would have done it earlier. The following is a message I received from President Fisher:

Dear Elders and Sisters,
We will be holding a Texas Dallas Mission reunion on Friday March 30th, 2007 at our home in Salt Lake beginning at 7:00 pm. The address is 6784 Vista Grande Drive, Salt Lake City, Utah.. Our home phone number is (801) 942-1040.
We look forward to seeing you all again. Dress is (nice) casual. Pot luck if you would like to bring something.

President and Sister Fisher

directions: 6784 is South and Vista Grande is approx. 3200 East. You enter the Old Mill Estates from a part of Big Cottonwood Canyon Road that runs from 3000 East to the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon at 7200 South.
