It as been ten months since we started this adventure. Where did the time go? We have made many good friendships while serving here and it will be hard to leave when the time comes. Many of these friends we are sure were close friends before we came to this earth. So many times we have felt that we knew them from somewhere else. A testimony to us that we are sent where we are supposed to serve.
We also have a hard time when we lose our elders. Elder Ames, on the left, has served in Wheeling for three transfers and has been our district leader. He is heading home to California this week. But we still have Elder van der Spec, Elder Bluemel, Elder and Sister Mooney and Elder Nielsen.
We have been enjoying a beautiful week of warm weather and blue skies. That is until yesterday when we saw our first snow of the season. This is a picture from our home looking west across the valley. We have enjoyed living here in this quiet neighborhood with good neighbors and a beautiful view. The house is still up for sale, but not many lookers yet. We just decided we would leave that in the Lord’s hands.
We are still having great adventures and love serving a mission together. We pray that our grandchildren will know, as Elder Holland said in general conference, “In this family we serve missions”.
