September 7, 2014
Monday night was asked to go out and teach with Elder Barnes and Elder Harrington. They had an appointment which fell through and 2 backups which also fell through. As we were walking the streets of Manchester, Sister Smedley and Sister Collins drove up and said
Wednesday night I was ask to help teach with Elder Barnes and Elder Pemberton. This was a family that was almost agnostic. But we gave the Restoration lesson and I was able to share my testimony of the blessings of family. They were interested to know that I had been married to Miriam for 44 years and that we had 5 children.
Friday, Miriam and I did apartment checks in the Augusta South and Bangor East Zones in Maine. Above in the middle are some the pictures with the Elders and Sisters. We love them so much and they are doing so much better
Then Friday evening we drove over to Bar Harbor Maine. They pronounce it "Baw Hawbaw". For some reason they don't pronounce their r's. It was absolutely beautiful. We stayed in a wonderful hotel, had the best clam chowder ever at Geddy's and walked the busy streets doing what Miriam does so well, shop!
Then Saturday we went through Acadia National Park which is breathtaking. We had so much fun. We are trying to see as much of New England as we can before the summer ends. We are now getting ready for the next transfer where we are getting 24 new missionaries. Then all of our children are coming on October 1st thru the 6th. We are looking so forward to that. We miss them all so much.
Today at church we had some of our recent baptized members bare the sweetest and heartfelt testimonies. The work is wonderful and we love it!
