"Tied" to our friends in Las Vegas

Elder Robb is one of the Assistants to President Clark. He is shown here with his companion, Elder Gutierrez. The Young Women of the home stake of Elder Robb in Las Vegas collected ties as a service project this fall. They sent some of them to the 17 missions in which their stake currently has missionaries serving--all over the world. We were blessed to receive 70 some new and gently used ties. We decided there were people here in the boundaries of our mission who could really use a tie. Our missionaries were challenged to give a tie to an investigator or new member and then take a photo of the gifts to send back to the Young Women in Las Vegas. Here are some of the photos...
Hermanas Velazquez and Garcia found a good home for one of the ties.

Elders Edwards and Curiel are serving in El Orito in the Zacatecas Zone. They gave their tie to this future missionary.

This young man is holding his new tie and his mission call. He is "Called to Serve".

  1. I am one of the YW presidents from this stake in Las Vegas. I just printed off all of the pictures of the tie recipients. Thank you for sharing!
