Called to Serve

 

Elder Troy Paul Jewkes has hereby been called to labor as a head golf professional in the Oregon section of the PGA.  Troy served a two year LDS mission in the Eugene Oregon mission field and is very excited to be returning to his “people”.  We are sad to be leaving such a wonderful place and to be leaving so many great friends that we have made while living here, but I feel very strongly that this new adventure is a true blessing in our lives.   I know that Troy will do a fantastic job with the golf operations of the course he will now be managing.  He is so passionate about he game of golf and that shines through the work that he does and the lessons that he teaches.  You can’t help but love the game while you are in his presence.  We still have a lot of details to work out and I am not looking forward to the actual move, but we will let you all know when we have settled in our new home and hopefully we will be able to use the Oregon Coast as an enticement for visitors.

Sure, try to use the Oregon Coast to entice visitors, but we all know that's got NOTHIN' on the Linger Longer Lounge (with Sunday Jam Sessions) or the Blanchard EZ Stop (Mini-Mart AND gifts...) I suppose one good thing about you leaving is that our grass might revive where we've worn the path to your house...but really, lawn care is over-rated and we don't like the idea of no neighbors.

How very exciting!!! We will definitely come visit. We really wanted to go to school out there, and have thought about looking for practices out there eventually. Too bad it is such a cold coast, but it's still beautiful!! Congrats to you guys!

Hoooooray!!!!!!!! That is THE BEST news!! How amazing to be back in Oregon. That seems like destiny :) We love Oregon-- it's where Kelly asked me to marry him. We'll be there over the 24th of March to film a wedding video. I wonder if you'll be there by then... Congratulations :) We are SO happy for your family.
Love,
Stacey
