Mosiah 2:12 – I say unto you that as I have been suffered to spend my days in your service, even up to this time, and have not sought gold nor silver nor any manner of riches of you.
We have completed our mission and our 5th wheel is back at its Smithville, Missouri home. After our release on October 10th we took four days and visited Charleston, South Carolina. What a beautiful city and so full of history. A good friend, Eddie and Toni
Peacock, whom we met while on our mission, towed our 5th wheel from Augusta, Georgia to Smithville, Missouri which is a distance of about 900 miles. Everything went very
smoothly. They wouldn’t even let us pay for the gas!! We had already arranged
for our son to come out and tow our unit back when the Peacocks unexpectedly called
us from Macon, Georgia and said they were in the mood for a road trip and wanted to tow us back to Missouri. We featured this giving couple about a month ago under the heading “The Real Saint Nicolas”. As you can see, we were not exaggerating.
We spent a little over one week in Missouri getting reacquainted with our family and grandchildren there. We are now in Salt Lake for a few weeks getting reacquainted with family here. In December we will return to our condo in Puerto Vallarta for one month
and then it is off to Hawaii where we will spend January and February tending three beautiful granddaughters while our son and his wife go to San Diego to do some additional training in the Marine Corps.
We loved our mission and it was a very rewarding experience. We met many wonderful people and learned so much about the history and culture of the South. It is really good, however, being back with family. Hopefully we will now have a little more time to keep this blog up to date.
