Time flies when you are having fun and we are having a great time. I thought Rod would go into withdrawals while on our mission because he wouldn’t get to go shopping, but that proved false. He has found so many killer deals here he hasn’t had to go without at all.

We drove to Pittsburgh this past week for transfer meetings. Every six weeks new elders come in and many of the current elders are transferred to different places in the mission. It’s a fun and exciting time for everyone and we went to meet the new elder coming to our District. It was a spiritual and uplifting meeting with experiences and testimonies shared. President Summerhays has his arm on one of the missionaries shoulders, always giving love and support. And Sister Summerhays is always there too, doing the same.
We had a very successful Relief Society Birthday dinner this week. I helped with the food and decorations and Rod and I sang in a quartet during the program. Rod got to help with other important things too, as you can see.
In our travels around the ward we discovered that Belmont, Ohio where Rod’s great grandfather, John S Green, was born is in our ward boundaries. We are excited to find any relatives he might have still here. His great great grandmother was a Duvall from here too. A coincidence? We don’t think so.
The work is progressing and we are having fun doing it together. Remember to put the Lord first and everything will work out.
