Another beautiful week in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. We continue to be amazed at the beauty of this place. We loved watching General Conference and hearing the prophets teach what we need to hear. We had two investigators at the church watching conference with us. It was fun trying to hear the messages from their perspective. The messages truly speak to everyone, whatever your needs or challenges. It is another testimony that the Lord loves us and knows each one of us individually.
We had transfers yesterday and lost Elder Boughton and kept Elder van der Spek in Wintersville. Not what we had anticipated.
Elder Nielsen was just released after 9 months as assistant to the president and came to Wintersville to be with Elder van der Spek. Wintersville won’t know what hit them. He is an incredible Elder and it will be fun associating with him for the last four months of his mission or however long he is here. We had district meeting at our home this week and we got to know him a little better. It’s fun to watch his energy and determination to do the Lord’s work the best he can.
We hope that is what we are doing: The best we can. We are excited about the things that are happening in the Wheeling area. We have lots of opportunities to serve and teach and hopefully there will be some baptisms soon. The Lord is preparing some wonderful people to hear the message of the restored gospel.
