Young Women Activities

As some of you may know,  I've been serving as a leader in the Young Women's program in my ward for 5 years.  I'm the president right now which is both wonderful and extremely busy. During the summer months we try to plan as many outdoor activities as we can to take advantage of the good weather while it lasts.

One of our activities was a service project at Ching Animal Sanctuary.  We helped repaint a shed for the animals and got to pet miniature ponies and a donkey as they supervised our work. Mr. Ching was so grateful for our help that he gave me and John several bags of fresh vegetables from his garden. There were bunches of kale, kohlrabi, an amazing squash that tastes great when eaten raw or cooked, and a ton of eggplant.

Bert the donkey was very friendly with all the girls. 

Hard work in the hot sun. It was in the 90's that day with no shade.

Our finished work! Do you love my giant sun hat? I got it after being inspired by people's flawless skin in Japan. Got to protect from those UVA/UVB rays!

John was great to come out and help us. It looks like there's blood on his hands but it's just the paint.

For another activity we took a hike in the hills around our community.
