The Whole South Zone was in Hull

As we drove to Hull for the first time, we were surrounded
by fields of brilliant yellow.  This plant is made into canola oil. 

A lovely lunch prepared by the Relief Society sisters in Hull.

The missionaries collected money to have this watercolor painting and framed as a thank you gift for President and Sister Lindley.  The painting is of the Farnley Church which is 1 1/2 miles from Lindley Village where President's ancestors are from.   The missionaries love and appreciate the hours they have given to serve the Lord for three years.  They will be dearly missed for they are dearly loved!

Happy to serve!

Elder & Sister Olson live an old Victorian home.  They have church in their home for the Chinese group each Sunday.
