Coming Home July 2011


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!

Loved the pictures! Olya looks really great! It doesn't seem that long ago that she was interpreting for the Kinghorns.

It's hard enough for me to remember English names. You are doing great! I hope the Open House was a success even though the "Greep" has gripped the country.

Thanks for your 110% effort!

Oh thank you thank you for these wonderful pictures. I love them. It is so great to see everyones faces and hear of the changes in the branches. Olga looks so good. I miss her so much. We miss all the members too. Please tell brother and sister Koslov hello for us. And tell President I am so proud of him and good luck with his talk.
