Yesterday was a good day! We had a special visitor call us via Google Hang-out. It was totally unexpected, but hoped for. (https://www.mormonnewsroom.org/article/missionaries-family-communication) Elder Whitchurch said he could have had more email time, but he decided to call us instead. Thank you! And, yes please! We had a fun time asking him questions we have… Read More New Changes Coming Our Way!

I was amazed at the difficulty that just adding water can bring… Read More Family Hike
