Elder Hobbs' Blog is STILL Alive!!!

Hello all you lovely Sam fans out there. This is Jessica Dunlap, Sam's most beloved and most hated sister of all time (and only sister). I will be trying to maintain Sam's blog while he is away serving the Lord in Antofagasta, Chile. I'll post the emails I get from him as well as type the letters our family receives. If you leave comments for him, I will send them to him and post his responses to you. Keep your prayers coming for Sammy as he works hard to bring people to Christ. Thank you!

Kayaking Class

Kayaking in October (Oct. 8, 2008)

For part of my Woodbadge ticket, I have committed to give the YM a Kayaking experience. This is the second roll class, and some of the boys are great. I am more like a marshmallow floating in the pool! Wouldn't it be cool if all of the YM could roll a Kayak? We're learning the sweep roll.

Here is our instructor.

Albuquerque Airport!

Sam insisted that I post on his blog while he is on his mission. Here are some pictures at Burger King, just before we took Sam to the Airport. Jessica is the only girl eligible to hug Elder Hobbs, now that he has been set apart as a missionary.

Here are some pictures of the tear festival at the airport.
