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!

Our wonderful Feb. Missionaries!! As we have visited with these new missionaries, we have found a great spirit about them. They have strong testimonies and are anxious to share them. We love them and thank their parents for sharing them with us.

Missionaries Return to Donetsk Mission

Sister Mezinets returns home from the Yekaterinburg Mission. She is from Makeevka and her brother, sister, mom and the Branch President that sent her out are in this picture. More people came to see her also. She will be a great asset to her branch just as she was to her mission.

Sister Tanadychuk is from Mariupol and she returns home from the Novosibirsk Mission. Her Branch President and young women leader came to welcome her home along with some other people as well. She also will be a great strength to the branch.
