"Monson and Lopp, Esq."

Doesn't this title sound like a:

High quality
Firm? many ways it is.

Pictured here on the left is Elder Monson from Alpine, Utah and on the right is Elder Lopp from Orem, Utah.
Without question, these two young missionaries are 

Usually dressed in dark suits, white shirts and conservative ties,  sporting the traditional name tags of  missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, these GENTLEMEN arrived at our farm after a full day of missionary labors, and as you can see above, traded in their day clothes for some well-worn navy blue Blåkläder Swedish farm coveralls, and hopped to it with the mucking out in the main barn.

Their next assignment was TAILOR-MADE for those who are as willing and anxious to serve as they were that cold Spring evening.

 After a short tutorial from Gustav on the joys and effective techniques of calf-feeding,

they started right in.

And were they good at it?

Look at them!
Monson is feeding two ravenous baby calves simultaneously in two different pens,
and Lopp, not one whit behind him, is switching out the feeding nipples according to the age and abilities of the younger calves,
like a Pro!


Their faith is FIRM  in the Master
 they follow and serve.

After feeding them a dinner of spaghetti and meatballs, salad, garlic bread and a take-home bag (so they could be home on time) of two containers of Ben and Jerry's ice cream, we sent them on their way to drive the hour and a half back to their apartment in Örnsköldsvik.

We love these good young men. 
They were an answer to our prayers when we needed some very real

Thank you so much for posting these pictures of our missionary on here. I just love reading your blog. You have a beautiful farm. It was so fun to see pictures of Mic (Elder Lopp) He loves coming to your farm and wants to come back after his mission to help. Thank you for taking care of them and letting them experiences that amazing experience. You sound like a wonderful family. Thanks again. Julie Lopp
