|Last weekend some of our family came to visit. Yaaaa! This is Sara, Neli, Amy,Quin, Avri and Maci. The door behind them is to my office. The map shows the boundaries of our mission. They were here for 2 1/2 funfilled days.|
While my family was visiting, we had a very special treat! Elder Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve just happen to be passing through on his way to a vacation and wanted to talk to our missionaries. President Bubert said to bring our family to the talk. WOW! We all got to shake his and his wives hands. Elder McOmber also was able to go to lunch with him, I played with family.
Elder Ballard talked about missionary work, of course. He said we need to "internalize" Preach my Gospel, "internalize" the gospel and the doctrines, then go and teach. Study then confidence comes. Use the spirit to teach. It was awesome!
My family got to meet all 154 missionaries that I help try to keep healthy.

|We had fun flying kites, our "home" is the one you can see with the American Flag. Quin (3yo) was really good at keeping his kite up in the air! We could have done this all day.|
