evening. We met two new couples to the mission, the Smiths from Utah who will be working in the mission office and the Howards, who are local and will be working for FamilySearch in records preservation. It is interesting to hear what other couples are doing and learn about the variety of ways available to serve. President Richards also told us about the newly called Mission President who will be replacing him July 1st. Long drive home, but safe.

It was Friday already and time to get back to actual missionary work. I left Wayne at home and went up to our nursing home to visit Helen - she thinks she may get to go home soon after rehab for a broken arm. I also checked in on Robin and Traci. Picked up Wayne and we tried unsuccessfully to see a few people, then drove to Moorefield for a nice, long visit with our new family, Dwayne, Katja, and kids. Good to see them, they talked for a long time about their recent trials. Hope they all get healthy soon and continue with the missionary lessons. They are awesome.
|Weren't we lucky to find this treasure on our way up to visit Jack & Debby?|
