One More Adam-ondi-Ahman

 July 16, 2012

A very nice couple, Austin and Darlene Bonnett, work at the temple, they live very near Adam-ondi-Ahman.  Brother Bonnett is the stake Patriarch there.  They invited the temple president, President Hardy and his wife, to come out for a private tour.  The Hardy's asked us if we would like to go with them.  Of course we were more than willing!  Very few people get to see behind the closed gates!

It was really a nice tour.  The Bonnett's were amazing.  Not only did they spent their entire morning showing us Adam-ondi-Ahman, they took us back to their home, fed us a delicious lunch, then took us to an Amish store that specializes in food storage products, spices, and some produce, it may be all the shopping that is out that way!  The Bonnett's have their own food storage room in their basement that could be a Bishop's Store house!

I wish I could remember what every picture was about!  We saw a temple site, Little Valley, the bottom of Spring Hill, the Grand River, a cemetery, Lyman Wight's home, homes where the missionaries live, and many other beautiful spots!

It was hot!  We all have umbrella's
 left over from the Temple Open House!

Lyman Wight's well.
There are several orange or white stakes.  They all represent
a place that was significant, either a building or something
special happened there.

This is a Mouse Trap!  It really works. It was inside the indexing building.
 The mice climb up the pieces of wood, then crawl out onto the string
 to reach the peanut butter that is on the cup.  The string goes through the cup,
as soon as the mouse gets to the cup, the cup turns
 and the mouse falls into the water and drowns.
They catch about 5 mice a day.
  Who thought of that?   
This is the indexing building.  Missionary couples take care of the
 grounds at Adam-ondi-Ahman, the wives index until 12:00 noon every day.

  1. I am wondering how to contact missionaries that are currently serving at Adam-ondi-Ahman... we were recently there and left a set of scriptures. Can you point me to any more info?
