Typical Missionary Week

Not much to say this week.  It went by very fast and we kept very busy.  Pretty typical.  Monday - our day off - my friend Traci who doesn't have a car asked if I'd take her to do some errands.  Then the missionaries asked Wayne if he'd accompany them on an appointment in the evening.  Good things.  Tuesday was District Meeting in Romney.  I tried to get a few good pictures of Elder Bronson for his mom, but I guess I moved the camera and they were pretty fuzzy.  Sorry.  When we got back to Moorefield from Romney Wayne got the van serviced (again!) while I shopped at Wal-Mart.  In the evening we played Bingo with the residents at the nursing home.  Wednesday we didn't have to go to Columbia for transfers because none of our Elders got transferred,  unusual but nice.  But we did not stay home, our friend Woneda called and asked if we would take her to a doctor's appointment in Romney.  It's 41 miles to where she lives in the hills with her son (and 8 other people in a single-wide trailer), then about 25 miles from there to Romney.  Her doctor's appointment and hospital tests lasted over 2 hours, then a long wait at the pharmacy for medicine.  We enjoyed looking around in Romney,  going to an Amish market and a vegetable stand,  lunch at Burger King, taking pictures of a cute church, etc.  Finally got to take her home,  and visited another shut-in ward member on the way home.  I dropped Wayne off in Moorefield at the business of his home teaching partner so they could make some visits.  Thursday we made quite a few visits and while I went to Relief Society evening meeting, Wayne practiced music with Johnny.   Saturday we worked at the community Mobile Food Pantry all morning - that was fun, but hard work.  A great project.  In the evening Wayne and Johnny sang at the nursing home while Janet and I worked on her genealogy.  Great meetings today (Sunday) and I got to teach Relief Society.  After Church a neighbor Oscar and Wayne's home teaching companion Ron came over for dinner.  Now they are out visiting.  That's basically our typical week.  Oh, and watching a few football games, too  - Go, Cougars and Broncos!

Happy, Happy Birthday Tuesday to son-in-law Pat and lovely granddaughter Naomi (turning 6) on Tuesday, and to cute, cute grandson Jack (turning 5) on Friday.  We love you and miss you.
