Come Follow Me
"And he saith unto them, "Come and follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." (Matt. 4:19) As the New Year begins, we, the members of the Willow Wood Ward, invite you to Come and Follow Him!

Elder Martin and Sister Jeanette Evans

Elder and Sister Evans are currently serving as service missionaries for the Tabernacle Choir.  Instead of buying white shirts and ties and skirts and blouses upon receiving their call, we found them purchasing black shirts and pants so they can serve as stage hands for the choir broadcasts, concerts, and drive truck on choir tours.  They have this to say about their experiences to date:

"We have had some great experiences since getting our call in August for a service mission the the Tabernacle Choir.  We serve 3-4 times a week and most recently at the Christmas Concert.  Our assignment was to oversee the dancers.  It was our job to have them in position to go on stage.  From the back of the auditorium or up top (stage) or along the sides, we had to make sure they were all there and ready to go on. It was a GREAT experience with GREAT kids!

"Next we got to help with the inauguration of Governor Herbert in January at the State Capitol.  We had to take risers (24 of them) into the capitol.  It takes at least four men to carry one riser--and they had to take them up three flights to the rotunda.  It was a lot of work!!!  We also had to take in everything for the orchestra (65 chairs, stands, timpani, bass, harps, keyboard, chimes, etc.).

"I will never forget hearing the "Battle Hymn of the Republic" as it echoed through the rotunda.  FABULOUS!

"We are now looking forward to going on tour with the choir and orchestra in June."
