There were actually two dogs facilitating our hard work, but I felt the composition best worked with one. Plus they were both German Shepherds.

Due to the pandemic, one of the only ways we are currently allowed to interact in-person is through outdoor service projects for people in the community. Because of that, service projects comprise many of the highlights of the beginning of my mission. My first service project was today, which was for a lady named Sister Martinez. She wanted stepping stones in her front yard dug up and carried to her backyard to be repurposed.

Even though it was outdoors, missionaries are instructed to wear masks at this time.

Her dogs carefully facilitated our hard work.
