One of the things we wanted to do was go to Palmyra New York and see the Pageant. We have been to Palmyra before and seen the sights, but it was not during the Pageant and we had heard how wonderful it was. So a few weeks ago we asked President Stoker for permission to leave the mission to go. We were pleasantly surprised when he said yes.
The second picture is at the Grandin Print Shop where the original Book of Mormon was printed. That in itself was quite a feat.
The third picture is of Miriam and I at the Hill Cumorah just before the Pageant was to start.
We got a flat tire at the top of the hill in the parking lot. A kind man gave us a can de-flat which we used to get enough air in the tire to take us to Rochester New York to get it fixed. This day and age it is hard to find a place that fixes flats late on a Saturday afternoon. Service stations don't do it anymore.
We got home Sunday evening and we loved the weekend we had. Our testimonies grow and grow as we serve. We were at church and had Brenda and Phil Frandsen come up to us. We were so surprised and happy to see them. They are from our Citrus Heights Ward days. What great people they are.
We love the work. We know that the true church is here on the earth and we are in it. We are so grateful for our Lord Jesus Christ. He lived and died for us and continues to live today. His church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is his kingdom here on earth. Thank you Lord for allowing us this opportunity to serve as missionaries.
