Made a couple other visits to families we have been trying to catch up with. Wayne took the van to

Our other big project for the week (and on-going) is making our own directory pages. We are taking the ward roster and combining it with directions to many of the homes in the ward compiled by former senior missionaries and a Relief Society roster of women and how they are related to one another, also other notes from previous missionaries, and any other relevant information we

Tomorrow we are making the three hour trip to Frederick, Virginia, to attend meetings and training with Elder Bruce Carlson of the Second Quorum of the Seventy. Half of the missionaries in our mission will meet Monday in Frederick, the other half Tuesday in Columbia. After the meetings tomorrow the senior missionaries will have a dinner and fireside with him. Should be a wonderful day. Tonight I have to make a side dish to take to the dinner. I was sent the recipe to use: Sun Dried Tomato Orzo with Fresh Basil. I found out last night that there is no fresh basil in Petersburg so we had to make a run to Moorefield, finally found some limp, moldy basil leaves in a Food Lion store. Now I have to look on the internet to see how to "chiffonade" them. One more thing I am learning on my mission...
Had a great Sunday with very good attendance at Sacrament Meeting. The family we have been helping clean up a big old house all came to church, 13-year old Josh (son of a recent convert) came, Brandi and one of her children who we held Home Evening with a couple weeks ago came. Wayne taught the High Priest's group. Next week I get to speak in sacrament meeting and teach Relief Society. Also got a couple of visiting teaching routes today. We will keep busy. The weather is still nice enough for us to walk to church, though supposed to get down in the 20's tonight.
