We had another great week here in Alaska!! Mon., we took a 3 some set of Elders to dinner at the Moose’s Tooth – a good pizza place in town – they make homemade root beer so we shared a pizza and had good root beer – After, Rodney Hutchings invited us to a St. Patrick’s get together where he cooked corned beef and cabbage and everyone brought potluck green food items. They had bagpipe players there too. On Tues. we moved to a new location – We live in a six plex and have a living room, kitchen, bathroom and 2 bedrooms – Our laundry room is shared with 2 other apts. and is a few steps away. So we have been busy settling in and making it feel like home here. We have our family picture books that you made for us so we can look at them and show everyone how special our family back home is:):)
Today we went to the Oceanview Ward that is where our apt boundaries are – but we haven’t been assigned yet from the Mission Pres. what ward we will work in yet. On the way, we saw a moose nibbling on some branches. After church, we went to a real neat Fireside that was taped, called- Why I Believe – Converts spoke and some special musical numbers were played and sang – we will send you a copy of the DVD when we get it so you can see it. Then we were invited to Rod and Robin Hutchings for dinner after at 6:30pm – Rod barbequed stakes on the grill and we had corn on the cob, baked yellow gold and sweet potatoes, cole slaw, and delicious cookies for dessert. Chelsie, Kylee, and Robin’s sister Ronnie was there too. Their house is really homey with cute family pictures – They see moose out back often.
The best thing about our apt. is that we have 1 set of missionaries that live above us. Most nights they come say goodnight and tell us how their day went – Elder Justice is from Colorado and Elder Worwood is from Nephi – They have a baptism this Thurs. and invited us to come – that is exciting.
Thanks for all of the help you give to us – we love your emails, texts, phone calls and pictures you send to us – We love You All!!!!!
