We always have fun traveling with the Pettingill's. They teach also and we have so much fun together.
The eight pictures to the left are of the Sanford Days celebration in Sanford Maine. The Church did this last year to celebrate Pioneer Day and the city so much liked it that they wanted to participate and call it Sanford Days.
President and Sister Stoker were unable to attend as President Stokers father was in town and he was leaving this morning. His father is in very poor health and President Stoker feels this may be the last time he sees his father on this side of the veil.
The next four pictures are of us with the Pettingill's at the lighthouse in Portland Maine. We decided to try and go see as much as we can every week end as our time here is closing too fast.
It was the most beautiful day. As you can see from the pictures we had lots of sunshine and ocean, sky and greenery was fabulous.
Elder Plyler gave us a lesson afterwards on the faith that is needed to have miracles happen in our lives. We reviewed 5 miracles in the New Testament and found that those that received these wonderful miracles needed only a particle of faith to be healed or saved from natures torments.
He then ask us to pray with this same faith tonight for our Heavenly Father to put someone in our paths that we can find and teach. It was a wonderful lesson.
We have one more zone conference this Tuesday in Vermont and then it is time again to get ready for transfers. This is the most work for Miriam. It is hard to believe how much paper work there is to run the mission.
Our testimonies continue to grow and our love for the Lord gets stronger and stronger.
