Well Life is good here in VA land
We had a packed week! This week we went on a "Logistical
Mission" around the Mission. We had a bunch of missionaries that need beds
and frames and desks and Vacuums and what not. We also got a shipment
of phones from Salt Lake we had to update around the mission. So with all of
the stuff we loaded up the truck and trailer and jumped in (with Elder Medsker,
the Office Manager) and took off. We went from Richmond up
to Staunton on Thursday. We had stops all along the way. We
got up there and turned around and started back making stops all
along the way. We got back to Richmond on Thursday night at 7:30PM With just
enough time to get to our appointment at 8PM. Then we took off on
Friday for our 2 day trip down south. We started in Richmond and headed down to
Smithfield. It took ALL day to unload and upgrade. We finally pulled up to the
missionary apartment late and beat The trailer got more and more empty the
farther we went. We slept there and got up early the next morning to start out
on our 2nd half of the 2 day trip. We went to Chesapeake and dropped off some
more stuff. Then we Stopped and Great Bridge for a BAPTISM! One of the people i
taught there decided to finally get baptized so we went to that and continued
on our way. We shot back up the 64 toward VA Beach and then Newport News and
finally arrived back in Richmond around 8.... Three days of lifting
driving. Glad to have been able to help some missionaries get what they need
and even more glad to be back and working in the area.
The second day i got ONE arm sunburned because i had it resting on the
window while i was driving. So i had to make sure to even it out the third day.
FYI, I drive way more often and way further distances here than i
ever did back home!
Another big task checked off the list and now we have a little more time
to get the real work done.... Well.... until we get some other
assignments we need to accomplish. I Made a big "To Do" Binder so i
can keep everything strait.
Things are good in Clover Hill as well. I didn't mention that 2 weeks ago
the Washington DC Temple 1st Councilor and his wife came and spoke in
our sacrament meeting. It was way good!
I hope all the dads in the family had a good Fathers day. Too Bad my Dad
is way cooler than all the other ones! HA!
