The greatest blessing of being a missionary is baptizing!!! A few weeks ago President Russell was able to baptize Savannah! She is standing with two of the missionaries that taught her; 
Sister Udall and Sister Nowell. 
Savannah is amazing!



 Shortly after that wonderful event we welcomed a new senior couple: The Merrills! They are wonderful and we are excited to have them in the greatest mission on earth, the OEM!

Last Friday and Saturday we had our senior couples' conference at the mission home. It's simply friends getting together to learn from each other. 
Sister Erda Johnson came and helped with dinner and provided the beautiful flower arrangements.

We are missing Elder and Sister Danley. Elder Danley had some minor surgery and was recovering. We missed them!

After dinner we had a meeting and testimonies and they all departed for their 
apartments or hotels.








The next morning was a beehive in the kitchen






The Assistants: Elder Hill and 
Elder Dopp

















We always get a picture before we depart to our areas. I give the phone to the Elders to take a picture and it ends up being a selfie first.
