Back to The Hard Pioneer Days


We had no idea that people still had coal burning irons. We visited this Sister and she was using one. She said that you put the hot coals in the top and iron the Levi's first and then as the iron cools you use it on the more delicate clothing. Not everyone has electricity where we are and a lot of people do not have running water. If they do have electricity it may be hanging wires with one light bulb. Some have more , many have TVs.

Hey thanks for the post! I just wanted to let you know that there is a grandbaby that is waiting to meet her grandparents and I have a feeling she will enjoy being spoiled by them! You guys are awesome, I love you both. Take care, looking forward to the new posts.

Bryce and his wife just had their first little baby girl on the 20th of feb. There are pics of her posted on my blog. We are keeping you and all missionary work in our prayers. love you
