Updates on Darren

We created a new blog to provide updates Elder Novakovich's.  The blogsite is http://www.serbiamission.blogspot.com/ and a link titled "Serving in Serbia" in now included on our list of blogs.

He is doing well and in his most recent letter he commented on a conversation by a couple of elders comparing the MTC to prison.  One Elder replied that the difference with prison is that you get to watch TV.  Darren seems to be enjoying his prison sentence so far.

Weekend in Dixie

Would you rather sit at your desk for three days continuing to make sure that the debits equal the credits or golf 54 holes of golf in mid-70s weather in St. George, Utah?  That was the question I faced once again and for the fourth straight year decided that golf sounded more enjoyable.  We enjoyed three fantastic days of golf, playing Thursday at the new Sand Hollow Golf Resort and Friday and Saturday at Sun Brook Golf course. We were one of 43 teams playing in the Dixie Celebrity Classic held annually the first week in November.  The first day was a special sponsors round and didn't count towards your overall score.  We played Friday and Saturday and posted a score of 25 under par, which put us in a tie for 19th place.  The winning team finished at 39 under and was led by Jay Don Blake who played on the PGA tour and now golfs on the Champions Tour.  Our celebrity was Cory Snyder who played collegiate baseball at BYU and followed that up with nine years in the majors playing for Cleveland, Toronto, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
