  • Relief Society House

    From the Virgin Valley Heritage Museum Here is the most recent update on the status of the Mesquite Historical Society's effort to restore and preserve our 1880 Rock House and the Mesquite Relief Society House on Willow Street. We would not have gotten this far without the help of our community. YOU ALL made this possible with your donations to our fund raising projects and for the volunteer work on the building site. We now have a secure fence (Thanks to the City of Mesquite) and power to the buildings. We will resume the interior renovations in the fall and again we are asking the community to volunteer. Please keep an eye on our Face Book postings for the starting dates. Again, please help us restore and preserve our history for generations to come.

  • Terry Ogden Obituary

    Terry Paul Ogden August 27, 1966 — July 7, 2024 Terry Paul Ogden passed away on Sunday July 7, 2024 in Mesquite, Nevada. He was born in Ogden, Utah on August 27, 1966 to parents Charles Paul Ogden and Carolyn Reid Ogden. He was the middle child of the family with an older brother, Wayne, and younger sister, Patricia.  Terry grew up in Ogden, Utah and had an adventurous childhood with very close friends. He attended Bonneville High School where he enjoyed wrestling and serving in Student Government.  He served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Buenos Aires, Argentina 1985-1987. While in Argentina he found a love for the culture, food, people, and soccer. This love of soccer would play a big role in his future. For the rest of his life, he would tell story after story about the wonderful experiences he had while in Argentina.  After his mission, he met the love of his life, Heidi Lyn Bouwhuis, on a blind date. They married December 15, 1988 in the Salt Lake Temple. They lived a wonderful life together and were each other’s firm foundation while weathering the storms of life. Together, they welcomed three children into their home, Kiera, Brailee, and Keaton. In 1998, they moved to Mesquite, Nevada and found a community they loved. Terry loved supporting the youth and helping them have opportunities to grow. He served for many years as a scoutmaster, Young Men’s leader, soccer coach, and volunteering as a starter for swim meets. In Mesquite, Terry coached the girls high school soccer team and founded FC Mesquite, a soccer league for the local kids. He went on to work with Utah Youth Soccer Association and enjoyed making sure the teams in Southern Utah had the resources they needed to support their players. While work working for UYSA, he saw a need for more soccer fields to support the growing league. In order to meet that need, Terry envisioned a new soccer complex near Santa Clara, Utah that many athletes could enjoy for years to come. For the past two years he headed that passion project, Shivwits Legacy Field Complex.  Terry was known for being generous and having a heart the size of a lion. He would often stop when he saw people with car trouble on the side of the road or take food to a struggling friend or neighbor. When he interacted with others, he would try to make their day a little better by bringing cheer and laughter. Terry also had a love for music and could often be found listening to beautiful instrumental music while going about his day. More than anything, Terry enjoyed spending time with his friends and family. He loved to chat, share stories, and tell jokes. Anyone who knew him well had probably heard the same jokes and stories from him multiple times. His friends and family will miss hearing those jokes and stories over and over again. He will be missed more than words can express. He is survived by his wife, Heidi; children, Kiera (Cody) Anderson, Brailee (Warren) Anderson, and Keaton (Natalie) Ogden; grandsons, Luke and Rhett Anderson, and soon to be granddaughter, Scotland Ogden; siblings, Wayne Ogden and Patricia Johnson; and many other beloved friends and family. He is preceded in death by his parents: Paul and Carolyn Ogden.

  • Sister Jerusha Bundy

    Sister Jerusha Bundy Back to Missionary Letters so much freedom 🕊🇨🇦🇺🇲 Hey everyone So much celebration of freedom this week, we had canada day on monday (they are kinda free, ill attach the canadian national anthem at the bottom here), we had the 4th of JULY 🇺🇲🎉, we had temple baptisms with Kayla (people being freed from sin) and Manjeets baptism on Saturday! So many things to celebrate up here in the great white north. Its actually and finally getting slightly warm here. Its maybe hit 80 and everyone is crying about it. Meanwhile. Im soaking up every second because soon enough ill be back in the devils armpit :/ but its okay, ill get to see my family so thats cool We had zone conference and us and the zone leaders did a roleplay (which means we did like a pretend lesson) in front of literally ALLLL the missionaries in our zone, it was kinda scary and i was shaking in my boots, i dont get nervous teaching people but teaching in front of like 30 genius missionaries was a little intimidating for me but we made it through, i learned lots at zone conf, but less from the actual prepared trainings. I learned from my mistlakes, i learned from the spirit, i learned from other missionaries examples most. MANJEET GOT BAPTIZED This man is my pride and joy, its been so amazing to see him transform hikself and step up to the place God needed hin to be in, he was super excited to be baptized and get the gift of the holy ghost, he had all smiles the whole time and got up to thank everyone for showing him Gods love. The next day he got confirmed and the aaronic priesthood and his temple recommend and we are going to the temple with him this thursday and this time, he is going to baptize us in behalf of people who didnt get to be baptized in this life. Im so excited and he is too! He also did a great job teaching lovepreet again all in punjabi! How cool is that. Ill never get over this miracle. You cant make me I havent built my fort yet, im getting all the strategies and all the advice from some selected professionals first, if im going to do this, im going to do it right. I didnt find any more machetes this week but ill keep looking. We went to the temple with our new member kayla this week and did baptisms, it was so special and i felt so clean and happy afterwards. The house of the Lord changes us from the inside out. This morning, i felt like taking a Book of Mormon on our run again, youll never guess butvwe ran into someone who was searching for a church to go to and a stronger connection to God! We were a little sweaty from our run, and a little out of breath but i was SO GLAD that I had my favorite possesion with me to give to her, my own personal book of mormon. God works in mysterious ways sometimes but if we heed the promptings of the spirit, we will see His hand and be His instruments. I love this work with all my heart. Please share the gospel with those around you, dont be a hog. I love you🤍 Sister Bundy! Previous Letter Next Letter

  • Elder Caiden Jones

    Elder Caiden Jones Back to Missionary Letters Email #3: No Australia :D As the title of this email suggests, I am not going to Australia. My visa did not get here in time so I will be temporarily serving in the Arcadia, California mission and it is great. Before I get to why I am excited to go to Arcadia here's a funny now but depressing in the moment story: I waited and hoped for my visa to get here before the deadline but with no luck. On the day of the deadline, I got an email from the travel office to go and get my travel packet for my temporary reassignment. Me and the other Elders in my district who were waiting on their visas too went to the travel office to get our flight plans. I open my letter up to look at my ticket and you wouldn't believe it... It was flight plans for Adelaide!! I freak out with my district and walk back into the office to ask if I got my visa. Here's a rough recitation of that conversation: Me: "Hi, did I get my visa?" Lady: "No, that's why you got that packet." "I know, but why does my ticket say I fly to Adelaide?" *She takes the paper from me* "Oops that shouldn't have been there. Disregard that." *Rips up my ticket in front of my face* "Flip that page and your real ticket should be there." Sure enough I flip the page and my ticket to California is there. I got bamboozled by the travel department of the MTC. Was on top of the world and got shot down real quick but oh well. Anyways, the good news from this whole event is my travel companion to Arcadia. You guessed it, my future wife. (I found out her name, it's Sister Kline.) Because she's my travel companion, we will, well, travel together. I don't know how it got approved for an Elder and a Sister to be travel companions but it just makes me believe that this isn't a coincidence even more. We'll fly next to eachother to LA and drive to Arcadia together and then fly to Sydney, Australia and then to Adelaide together. That's a lot of time to get to know eachother. Don't worry though, I'll still fumble and totally lose my chance but it's alright. Something else that was awesome was the 4th of July. We got out of class a little early and watched a video about Joseph Smith and the restoration but then got to have some ice cream and watch the firework show that happens at the BYU stadium. There was a drone show and we could see more fireworks than I thought we would. It was pretty cool. AMERICA🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🦅🦅🦅 We got to go to the temple 3 times this week and it was my first time doing sealings which was really cool. We went to the Mt. Timpanogos and Payson temple. Both are really beautiful as temples tend to be. The bus rides sucked though. This whole week has been kinda crazy because I have been way too tired every day and for the past day or so my nose has been a nuisance. Not too bad just really annoying. Some things I really enjoy about the MTC is practice sharing the gospel. In class we break into small groups a lot and share certain parts about the gospel which is really fun and helpful but it's even better with a scenario. I try to think of questions that can throw people off a little bit to and two that I remember from practicing with Elder Calvert are pretty funny. He was teaching me how we were all God's children and I asked "So I'm a demi-god?" He paused for a short sec and said "Sure. Whatever you want." Or something like that. Some other time I was with Elder Calvert, he was relating Jesus to Batman and I said "Wait Batman is real?" And he looked me dead in the eyes and said "Yes. Batman is real." Doesn't sound as funny writing it out but it was in the moment. I gave a blessing of comfort for the first time and it was an incredible experience. I know that priesthood power has been restored on the Earth and I am very thankful to be able to use it to serve God and his children. I definitely forgot to talk about a lot of things but if it's important enough I'll add it in my next email. Next week there are going to be around 3k missionaries in this MTC (Good luck Elder McOmie) so I am very glad I am leaving now. See you in Arcadia -Elder Jones Previous Letter Next Letter
