the trees are so tall and beautiful that it feels like I'm in the mountains.
I wanted you to see this pretty sight.
The pictures above and below are both heading toward the mission home.
The mission home is the two story with the white dormer you can see.
The picture above is what we see going away from the mission home.
The azaleas have been magnificent this year!
We also enjoy the different color birds.
This is our back yard.
Notice the storage shed? It is neat and tidy inside and out because of the efforts of one of our senior missionaries. Elder Lefgren with the help of Dayo, a wonderful friend, replaced some peeling siding and painted the whole building. He completely emptied it and organized it on the inside.
The service he gave benefits us and will benefit future mission presidents who follow us.
We made "Conference Cake" and had missionaries with us for all four sessions and missionaries and a friend accompanied President McDonough to the Raytown Branch for General Priesthood Meeting.
Oh, how we love these and all our missionaries!
We were all very grateful for a wonderful, uplifting, spiritually power-packed General Conference.
