The Mission has 3 Sisters that cover Catron County in New Mexico – 4,000 souls and way more elk and cattle – are simply amazing! They sing like nobody’s business – and that singing has done wonders to change the image of the Church there.
But, they also do — cowboy work. (Or should I say cowgirl work?) And that includes the branding done every spring on the new calves. They will help anyone who asks – member of the Church, nonmember, they don’t care. Pictured above are Sister Landry, Sister Isert and Sister Radamason. I should add that Sister Radamason is from — Madagascar!
She’s a part of our mission for 2 transfers – and the first transfer she got to stay in Phoenix – nice and safe. But, the Spirit said “get thee up to the mountains with her” – and so she is 5 hours away from Scottsdale, amid the pines and prairie grasses of the high country – with millions of stars around to keep them company.
Now, one of the communities in Catron County (a part of the Eagar Stake) is — Pie Town – aptly names per wikipedia for “an early bakery famous for making dried-apple pies that was established by Clyde Norman here in the early 1920s.” The Sisters ended up there on Pi day – 3.14.15. Yeah, it’s a special day that kind of came out of no where – except for those math majors who track this sort of stuff. The Sisters affirm however that the “pies” were delicious!
