|This is my sewing project from last weekend. I don't get too much time to sew, but it is therapy for me.|
Since we live in a RV park, people are always coming and going. Some are the same people that come and go, others come and leave. There are a few like us, "residents". One couple have lived here for 4 years, just moved spots a couple of times. Elder McOmber has left 2 Book of Mormon's in the Laundry room. They have gone and come back a couple of times. Last night a lady that is parked near us started talking to him and he found out she has one of the Book of Mormons and is 2/3 the way through reading it. He talked with her for 30 minutes. Maybe we can have the elders over for dinner and introduce them. That is better than the people that hurry the other way when they hear we are missionaries.
|My other project last weekend. I just gathered orange material together around a pillow and around plastic garbage sacks to make my "pumpkins".|
|Here is our "garden" from Elder Warburton. We have been eating tomatoes and peppers from it, so we do have a "harvest".|
It is hard to be here with some family issues at home in Idaho, we would like to be there to help and be a support. It was interesting that this (Elder Scott's quote) was one of the messages sent to my e-mail this week then I had to reflect on Elder Carter's (one of our AP-Assistant to the President) teachings in Zone conference..."Strong moral character results from consistent correct choices in the trials and testing of life. Such choices are made with trust in things that are believed and when acted upon are confirmed."
”Richard G. Scott, "The Transforming Power of Faith and Character"
Elder Carter's baseball coach sent him a letter after he had been on his mission for about 4 months: "Character is the ability to stick to a commitment when the initial excitement of the commitment is over." The excitement is not over, but the pull of family is definitely there. I have received a confirmation in my heart that this is where the Lord wants us to be. He loves all his children and will help them all, including my troubled family, where ever they are. He has definitely blessed us being here!
