  1. Bacchus seems like an odd choice to name a stake after.

  2. That picture of Pres. Nicholas G. Smith, he was one of the first five newly called Assistants to the Twelve in 1941, along with Pres. Romney. He was I think a half brother of Pres. George Albert Smith and only served for 4 years.

  3. Bacchus (and Hercules, where my dad worked when I was born) was an explosives testing facility in the middle of nowhere. It was actually named after an ordinary guy by that name, not the Greek god … But yeah, it IS an unexpected church-unit name!

  4. Love the sculpture pic!

    I really enjoy these even if I don’t find anyone I know (well, I mean since that one of my father-in-law as a missionary in England at the time of the London Temple dedication).

  5. Thanks again, Ardis, for another great selection of photographs. By the way, that Basel chapel looks especially nice.

  6. I really like that Basel building. I wonder if they’re still using it.

  7. I can’t embed a photograph from Google Streetview here, but it appears, Amy T, that the answer is yes. At Google maps, go to Sankt Johanns Platz 8, Basel, Switzerland, and switch to Streetview.

  8. From Mark’s instructions. The name of the Church (in German) is on the building. Hooray!

  9. Wonderful! Danke! Now I’ll have to visit Basel. Or perhaps we could hold a Keepa retreat there. : )

  10. That won’t work for those of us who listen only to the trumpet that will never call retreat.

  11. The missionaries in Oregon look so old compared to our missionaries going out today. I don’t know if they really were a lot older or maybe the way they dressed makes them appear older.
