MONROE - A trip to the Holy Land is beyond reach for some people, but this Sunday, April 13, they can share the experiences of Clifford and Jackie Riley, a couple from Orem, Utah, on a mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that has brought them to the Monroe area for a year. Clifford Riley hopes to "whet the appetites" of those who long to see the country by sharing his personal photos taken during several trips to Israel between 1986 and 2010. An engineer and the past director of utilities at Brigham Young University, Clifford Riley went to the Jerusalem Center as it was being built, for the first time in 1986 at the request of the university.
