Ty Neitz of Erskine just returned home after two years of serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Ty finished high school and studied engineering for one year at University of Alberta, and then decided to put education on hold for two years and volunteer in a mission.

There are several hundred missions throughout the world. Ty was called to serve in Montreal’s French-speaking mission and left to serve in September 2010.

He first went to Provo, Utah, to the Mission Training Centre and lived there for two months, learning French and the principles of the gospel.

From there, he flew out to Montreal to begin his service. Ty’s mission covered all of Quebec and the Eastern borders of Ontario, including Ottawa.

While in Quebec and Ontario, Ty taught about faith in Jesus Christ and volunteered his time to serve people in those areas.

While Ty wasn’t getting a formal school education the past two years, he came home with a different kind of education that will help him throughout his life. He gained a greater love of God and love for the people in Eastern Canada, and became fluent in French. He now returns to University of Alberta to continue his education in engineering.

Erskine United Church is celebrating 50 years of United Church Women. A special church service will be held this Sunday at 11 a.m. The church is honouring charter members and recognizing the lifetime memberships of Pat Anderson and Louise Armstrong. Lunch will be served at the Waverly clubrooms after the service. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The annual Erskine Floats and Flicks night is set for Sept. 8, with a parade, barbecue, games and movies. The event is posted on Facebook and Erskine Rec Board is in the process of choosing the movie. Post your choice online.

Birthday wishes go out to Justina Nibourg on Aug. 23, Don Gardner on Aug. 24, Yvonne Dyer on Aug. 24, and Carson Neitz on Aug. 28.
