November 2, 2014
The next picture is Sister Skidmore and Sister Holm's with the sister missionaries at the zone conference. They are always such a delight to be around.
After the zone conference we took the Holms through Queechee and Woodstock. A lot of the leaves have fallen and it wasn't as beautiful as when we took our children there just a few weeks earlier, but it was still very pretty. We shopped at the old country stores and even did some Christmas shopping.
The zone conferences were over after Tuesday and all our energies were focused on the upcoming transfers. There is always a lot of work to do to prepare for transfers. President Stoker seems much more relaxed this transfer and we are all happy about that. We are ready
The next picture is all of us with President and Sister Stoker at Carrabas. We went there for dinner for Halloween. The dinner was great and then we went to the mission home and played 5 crowns. And would you believe I actually won this time. The first time ever. We had so much fun and Sister Stoker made the best apple cake which we enjoyed with ice cream. It was such a good Halloween, even though we missed our grandchildren and their costumes.
We had a wonder Sabbath today. The next two
It was Fast and Testimony Meeting the testimonies were wonderful. We had lots of missionaries bare the sweetest testimonies. They know that they will be transferred this Tuesday.
Amy Herberts (scheduled to be baptized at Thanksgiving) mother came up to me and shared how is was a miracle that her daughter has accepted the Gospel after being so stubborn for 20 some years. She shared the miricale of her coming to their home when they had the missionaries there for dinner. She just showed up and she hit it of with Elder Plyler and Elder Pemberton. They love these Elders so much. I was able to bare my testimony of my love for the Savior and His Church and my love of these wonderful young missionaries. The spirit was strong and it set the stage for wonderful block of meetings.
