          We are having beautiful weather these last two days!  It was nice to leave our windows open to enjoy the breeze and air out our apartment.

          Yesterday we had a wonderful event in our mission!  We went on the ECU campus and held our first Sunday Night Prayer Meeting!  We are excited to see this grow larger and to see the students from the Branch grow closer together and stronger in the gospel.  We also went to Pres. Rappleyea's home afterwards to watch the CES Broadcast with Elder Holland.  Hope you have a chance to watch it.

  On Aug. 25th we went with our Branch to Emerald Isle.  What a beautiful place!  We really had fun!  Elder Myers played corn hole and we got caught in a couple of waves, found seashells and sand fleas.  We're enjoying our last walk on the beach at sunset.  


       This picture has some of our Branch members.  We love them a lot!  The beach house behind us belongs to a branch member's family and it was sooo nice!  In my next life, I want  . . . .

          Here are two Elders we go out with to teach investigators.  We have some very dedicated missionaries in our mission.  You can tell that we are in Greenville by the Pirate.  This one is at the Convention Center.  Almost everyone has a pirate sticker on their car and we see lots of purple and gold flags, shirts, wreaths on doors, and even flowers. We have never seen so much school spirit.  They say,"Pirates for Life."

          On the way to our last Zone Meeting in New Bern we were stopped on the bridge to let the small boat on the right pass through.  It was interesting to watch the bridge come up - a new experience for us.

            It's always fun to find a new place to eat out while we are in New Bern.  This time we tried  "The Cow Cafe" with our sister missionaries.  Great ice cream!

          Our Institute is still growing.  We had 28 youth and 4 adults.  Bro. Day, our teacher  is very good!  We are enjoying the New Testament which is very meaningful to us since our trip to Israel.  This was the get-acquainted game afterwards. 
          Time to sign off.  We love you so much!   You are very important to us and we appreciate your love and support.  Take care!
