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!

Lot's Happening in February 2010

Sister Dyachenko leaves for the MTC. She is from Petrosky(near Donetsk) and she will serve in the Ukraine Neperpatrosk Mission.
Elder McCallson is from Salt Lake City, Utah and we are so glad he is here with us. He is the only missionary sent to us this time around. His trainer is Elder Walton and they are serving in Kharkov Center.

Elder Scrdmoukhov is a mini-missionary(we have mini-missionaries when we have an odd number of Elders or Sisters). He is from Gorlevka(about 40 min. outside of Donetsk). He is serving for 6 weeks and his trainer is Elder Barton. They are serving in Mariupol(south of Donetsk). We are grateful for his service!

Elder Hyer and Elder Belyeu doing service by shoveling snow in front of the Church in Kharkov Center. It was 2 to 3 inches of ice just starting to melt. Good job Elders!!!

The snow banks starting to break on a little river that runs through Kharkov. The ice has been treacherous this year all over the mission. The side walks have been pure ice! Many layers of ice! Sister Salomonson(office couple) fell and broke her elbow. She has healed and doing much better. Our other Senior couples have had a turn at falling also and have survived(thank heaven!) Our missionaries seem to have more balance than us older missionaries. The people here walk on the ice like it wasn't even there! Spiked high heels and all!!! It has been a very long cold winter compared to last winter. Things are finally starting to melt and under the ice is mud! Oh well - we'd rather have mud than ice! I hope spring will be here soon!!! The days are finally getting longer and people seem happier in general.
