I am so excited for the holidays coming up. I love the spirit of service at this time of year. Everyone seems a little more grateful and wants to give more. Ross Farnsworth, my dad, has a charity foundation down in Honduras. The people down there live in poverty and have very little. What great lessons our family have learned being able to witness such grateful loving people despite their circumstances. We are so blessed to live in America and have what we do!
3717 E. Clovis Ave.
Mesa, AZ 85206
LIST OF NEEDS:
*Men's suits and ties
*Shoes-both church and tennis shoes
*Women's skirts and pants
*Shoes-church and tennis shoes.
Please take note that EVERY size is needed desperately. However, a handful of the missionaries are Latin and very petite people. So smaller sizes are GREATLY needed in both men and women.
This is a great time to clean out your closets and instead of going to Desert Industries...COME BY MY HOUSE. I will send out pictures of the Hondurans receiving their clothes via email to all of those that contribute so you can see who all will be getting your clothes. It will be an amazing experience for them, especially around Christmas time.
Thanks for all of your help!! We all can make a difference.

As you all know, we are having the Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction for Troy Wendt on November 9th from 6-8pm. We are in need of a couple things if anyone could help us out. We still need more tables and chairs for people to eat on and to display the auction items. Also, we are looking for a few people to volunteer their time at either the ticket table when people arrive, serving the food or at the auction table. If you could help out in either of these areas, it would be greatly appreciated! You can call Maren Urkov or Susie Packer for more information. Thanks!!

chicken (i have used anywhere from 2-4 pounds and the only noticeable difference with less meat is it's a TEENSY weensy bit spicier)
Sprinkle the following on:
1 cup sugar
1 heaping tsp dry ground mustard
1 heaping tsp cumin
1 heaping tsp minced garlic
pour over all 1 1/2 cans coke (I buy the 2 liter and just pour 18 oz or so)
How long you cook it depends on your crock, tenders or breasts and if they are frozen. I've done frozen breasts on high and they were done in like 4 hours, but my crock pot is crazy.
Once chicken is done, take ALL chipotles out. Shred meat and put it back in sauce and keep warm until ready to serve.
I put the following in the blender:
1 ranch dressing envelope
1 cup mayo
1 cup milk
1/2 bunch cilantro (cut most of stems off)
3/4 fairly good size jalepeno (seeds removed, that is the spiciest part)

very funny, but all inspiring video clip made for all of us.
Maybe we can talk the makers into making
a "Home Teaching Movie"! (: ~Enjoy!!!~
The Visiting Teaching Movie
"(Visiting Teaching) is a very serious
responsibility; it really is.
But it is not a heavy burden,
it just takes a little more faith.
It is worthy of our very best effort."

Our neighbors are getting a little bit desperate to sell. They have asked us to get the word out to the members of our church. :-) The house is vacant and ready to move in!!! If anyone knows anyone who wants to buy, tell them about this nice house. It isn't everyday you get to choose your own neighbor! i also have flyers to give out, too!

I just received a phone call from a non-member friend of mine who has been put in charge of helping find volunteers for the spooktacular this year! It will be held on Mon. October 29th at Harmon Elementary from 5:30-8pm. They are scheduling in 45min shifts and really need the support of the neighborhood parents! Please contact her and sign up for a 45 minute shift so that we can all enjoy the spooktacular with our kids! Her name is Jennifer Heiken and her e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org . They are also looking for volunteers to help set up and clean up so if you would rather come before or after the event that would be great! Thanks so much!
