How long has it been?

It has been so long since I wrote. So much has happened since my last message. I am part of the Alaska Stated Troopers now...as a chaplain. You might have seen on Jennifer's Blog, but I went on my first suicide, less then a week on. Here is a little pic I haven't picked up my name tag and badge yet. I am going on a ride along this weekend after our ward Pioneer Day picnic. We are roasting a pig I can hardly wait. I will also be on call for the Troopers Friday after Jennifer and I go to the Temple with some friends. Some of you might notice the collar...well as you can see I wear the Trooper uniform the collar is for my protection more than anything. This will hopefully distinguish me from a Trooper so I don't get shot. We do not do any proselyting, but can tell all about the church when asked. The Troopers do not do any kind of religious training only counseling support for those in need.
