Family Photo Album #1 / Mission Pictures

I am working on a project for my boys and this post is the first of four parts. It is a family photo album that is broken into specific sections. I am doing this mostly for my boys but I hope everybody will enjoy it and that it will bring a smile and some good memories along the way.

I served in the Indiana Indianapolis Mission from 1986-1988 and it was the best time of my life! I served in Linton, South Bend, Frankfort, and Cumberland (Indianapolis). I was also able to be a District Leader and Trainer which gave me some incredible experiences and great friends.
