We love to have friends and family come and visit us here on our mission.  Most of the time we go up to DC to meet them because it is easier than them traveling 70 miles south.  Although we do have lots to see and do down here too.

Debbie Tabor and Kathy Allred and their husbands joined us for dinner while they were here on PTA business.

Stan and Jennifer Summers came from Tremonton bringing me hugs from my dad and taking some home.  We spent the day touring D.C. and loving every minute of being together.  Their friend who lives out here by us Carson Holden came too.  We walked over 6 miles and my feet were yelling at me by the time we finished but I loved every minute of being with them.

March has been a very interesting month.  Transfers happened and our area was almost white washed.  While it came as a surprise, change can always be good.   Saying good bye to the Elders Simons, Jensen, and Ng was bitter sweet, knowing they would go forth and carry on, hopefully having learned something from these spicy missionaries.

Transfer meeting is always fun, watching these missionaries who came here with 2 suitcases and a carry on bag try and get all they have accumulated into the back of our van and their car was almost funny.  What is interesting is they have to leave with 2 suitcases and a carry on bag.

I think we got it all in!

We also get to see all of the missionaries who have worked with us before as in this mission everyone gathers from the far corners of the mission to load up and say farewell to those going home.  The testimony meeting is always a wonderful, very spiritual and uplifting.

This transfer we said good bye to Sister Fafita, she welcomed us to our apartment it seems like not very long ago, but it has been 7 months.  She is a wonderful missionary who will go forth and carry on for sure.  I will miss her hugs though.

We welcomed to the banana belt, Elders Little, Blackner, and Collins.  Elder Harrison stayed in our area for at least one more transfer.
