"TO EVERY THING THERE IS A SEASON AND A TIME UNDER THE HEAVEN." ECCLESIASTES 3:1
Working on new material for the blog!
It has taken me awhile to decide what to do with the blog. I felt lost not posting pictures of the missionaries and I've felt lost with not having my missionary routine. We are starting to settle into a different routine and I have decided to start blogging again. It will take me a little while to get things squared away but we are rolling into the next phase of our journey in life - recovery from the best experience of our lives ( the mission), knee surgery( Tim's), physical therapy for my back, and the economy with our business. We look forward to continuing our growth spiritually and preparing for what comes next!

Our son Jeff, came to visit us in July and stayed until August 4th. It was great to have a bit of home with us. He was here for 4 weeks and we took him to all the meetings. He gave us so many helpful hints for the mission. He served in Peru, Lima North Mission. His mission has been established a lot longer than our mission here. It takes time to establish and organize a mission in such a way that some of the older missions are. There aren't that many things to see but he got to see all of the major cities that we have missionaries in. The sunflower fields were in full bloom and that in itself is awesome to see. There are a few historical sites in Kharkov that we saw and we ventured into a salt mine that actually was quite facinating. We also went to Slavanogorist which is very beautiful and quite the hike up the hill(no mountains in this part of Ukraine). I would have to say that the countryside in our mission is breath taking at times throughout the year. Jeff helped fill the gap for we truly have been empty nesters in a far away place. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute he was here. He and Vladimir ( our driver) hit it off and it was fun to watch them tease each other. President Fry and Jeff did their normal thing of hiding from each other and then jumping out and scaring one another. It has been a great release for us to have him here. All and all it was great to have him be here. We hated to say goodbye. As soon as he got on the plane - I missed him already!
