When we get supplies out of the freezer at work, we have to wear a heavy coat. It’s zero degrees in there with snow on the floor. After work every day, I helped do yard work for members of the ward. I drove the John Deer to a sister’s home to mow her grass. Since it was Alpine Days, I went to the rodeo Friday night, and the next night watched fireworks. It was really fun. On Sunday, I made appointments to help other ward members with yard work.
I love my mission. Working at the bishops’ storehouse has opened my eyes to the needs of the patrons who are in need. Service missionaries take turns helping patrons get their groceries. We also stock shelves and clean. It is an 8-hour day of hard work. The service missionaries are divided into two districts at the bishops’ storehouse—the Anti-Nephi-Lehis, and the Jaredites. My district is the Jaredites. On Saturday my grandfather and I did baptisms, confirmations, and initiatories for family names at the temple. On Sunday I taught my first “Plan of Salvation” lesson to the Dunns.
Here is Elder Jacob Weir stepping off the plane July 31, 2017 to begin his Church service mission. He is ready to work and ready to serve with an upbeat attitude.
