Elder Packer Photo Album


England Birmingham Mission
(English Speaking)



It rains in Wales, but with rain comes rainbows!

Not sure if this is Benbow Farms...or a scenic view in Newport, Wales,

First flat tire!

Filling the font 3 times until clean water came out--this is what the water looked like the first time.

We figured Jake would find honey in the UK...he lives on the stuff!

Elder Jacob Packer's 19th Birthday!

Elder Eppel went home, We had Christmas Conference, and we dressed up as shepherds for the Cwmbran ward activity "a Night in Bethlehem":

Here is a picture of me after a really really really wet day. If you can't tell I'm completely soaked and I'm squeezing water out of my gloves. 1-27-14

that is a bowl of  cous cous. It was pretty good. It has a weird texture though. It's growing on me.

MY FIRST BAPTISM!!! Damian on Mar 1, 2014, Wales
Wait…these look like…could it be?…LEGOS!

Yes, there is a smiley face on the potato thanks to Elder Ferrell : )

Here is a picture of a proper British Breakfast. Mom! You can't see it in the picture but I had a couple of those boiled half tomato things... They were alright... and the eggs, they were ok too. I definitely prefer the sausages. (From Mom--baked beans are a regular menu item for breakfast as well.)

My new companion is Elder Jones! A very welsh name for a Finnish bloke… (3-10-14)

There are many many many pigeons here in town center. This one was hanging around to eat the crumbs from my lunch.

It was misty one morning. Those are our bikes chained up to a pole.

Enjoy the picture of my beautiful bike. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder/the person who made it ugly on purpose.

These birds match Andi's new tennis shoes!

Here is a picture of the July 4th party.

These are some pictures of the slide. It was pretty cool. Notice The young lad right behind me coming down the slide head first. :) That is Connor:)

Elder Andreas Lindquist from Sweden. I'm so excited to be with him. He's 19 years old, his hobbies include pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. Just kidding. He really is 19 but he plays loads of sports and apparently is a beast at Judo. 

Elder Shaw is opening up a new area in Nuneaton. What a beast.

So the kid with the blue tie is going to Ghana West Accra. The lad in the glasses is going to Mesa, Arizona. The guy without the suit jacket just got home from Scotland/Ireland.

They brought an entire pig to Maria's baby shower (that the missionaries were invited to!)
The Glenfield District. I love it here. It feels like home. 

Elder Sam Harris from Lindon UT. He's my Zone leader.

Oh yeah and I'm the district leader.
No idea what this is except a bug of some type...English Earwig perhaps?

Elder Lindquist

Elder Packer the day before his 20th Birthday, emerging out of a missionary meeting of some sort at the Westcotes Ward, wearing his special cardboard birthday glasses, candle included.  Photo credit to Sis Mann : )!

Elder Jake Packer with new companion Elder Jake Severe from the Lindon 14th Ward in our stake!! (Nottingham)

"Elder" Tim Farrant found Jake in the Nottingham ward--Tim was a missionary in Manchester England with Jake's uncle and aunt (Dave and Kathy Packer Bullock)

Elder Jake Severe and Elder Jake Packer spell T R O U B L E (with Jawbreakers in microwaves, anyway)

No missionaries were harmed in this jawbreaker bubblegum explosion incident--only the microwave and some pride...

Traditional family nativity play with the exercise ball taking the place of Jake as the donkey.  He was truly missed.
Surprise give via Amazon.com UK--a shoe dryer/warmer to keep that England rain from destroying his SOLE : )
Another UK mail order to make a photo family calendar for Christmas.  No shipping!!  Best idea ever!!
Snow in Nottingham! (With Elder Winder)
No idea what this is...I'm not surprised, just don't have an explanation...
Wishing all a very cool Merry Christmas from Nottingham 2014.

My Blue Eyed Boy

Hey I want to know what you think about this suit! Sister/Mom advice GO!

Why the area Jake is living in is called "Bull Well" : )

Bulwell, Nottingham

Life is good in the Nottingham 0.5 District! (The name comes from the two wards put together. Nottingham 2/Nottingham 4= Nottingham 0.5)

Nice moosen antlers (or is that mooses?)!

Da da  Da da  Da da  Da da  BATMAN!!

Members of the Church are peace loving people until they get plastic swords in their hands.

Elder Packer has collected bugs since he could walk--nice find in Nottingham!

To start, here is a nice tree with the rain drizzling down. (Burton-Upon-Trent May 18, 2015)
I got the vitamins and dietary supplement stuff! Elder Boshard and I were comparing the health level of our parent's gifts to us... He got chex mix and Lays and I got vitamins:) Together we will survive!
I've been warned never to wear pointy shoes because they will ruin your feet, but I wanted to try some on just for fun. What do you think?
