From Sister Gibby's letter after her first week in Tucson. "
I'm covering the Corona and Cienega ward here in Tucson, AZ. It is not really hot here at all, which is a pleasant surprise. The people here are great an love having sister missionaries. This is their first time ever having them in this ward, so they are super excited. The Activity day girls put together massive bags of stuff for us which was sweet. There was lotion, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, food, etc. Basically it was like Christmas in August."
I am excited to have a daughter serving a mission. When my youngest son, Jonathan, leaves for a mission in about a year I will have had all four of my children serve missions. With that and two children already married in the temple, I am truly blessed as a father.
I am the father of 4 great children and two incredible daughters-in-law. I have been married to the same amazingwoman for over 26 years. I enjoy life especially when I am outdoors. I am employed as the Environmental Manager for a mining company.
I think that the Disney character that I'm most like would have to be
Aladdin. I'm not sure if this is because it was my favorite Disney movie as
a child ...

My sister Kimberly is 10 years my junior. She is among the most adventuresome and accomplished of my siblings. She is married to Sione Fifita and they have one son Viliami who just turned two. She has been a professor of English in Hawaii and currently works for a scrapbooking supply company (Stampin Up). She has actually changed jobs more often than I have! She is writing a novel (has been for years) which I am eagerly anticipating. She has always been a great sister and in some sense is the glue that keeps all six of us bonded together. It has been nice to have her family back on the mainland and to live closer to them.
