Hello family, friends and loved ones,

          We are so blessed to have a Temple in our mission.  We spent another wonderful day at the temple with all the Sisters in the mission, the Couple Missionaries and President and Sister Bernhisel.  We all went over to the Mission Home for lunch together afterwards.

        A few of the couples who attended the Raleigh Temple, Elder and Sister Johnson, Pres. and Sister Bernhisel, Elder and Sister Myers and Elder and Sister Davenport.  There is nothing like a missionary session at the Temple.  The Spirit is here in great abundance.
      This is Sister Carmen who brings us and the Sisters to the Temple each time we make this special trip.  The Sister Missionaries live with her.
          Because transfers were coming up, the Elders, including the Washington Elders, came over for another fun preparation day - this time it was Basketball, barbeque steaks and funeral potatoes.  "Getting together" for the picture on the couch is another creative moment with the Elders.                                                                                                                                We are now the Washington District since our new District Leader is assigned there.  The Sisters came over later - we plan to go hiking with them next week.
Our wonderful district has some exactly obedient Elders and Sisters who serve here.
The Greenville District including our Zone leaders 
       It is football season again!  Purple and gold is coming out everywhere.  This classy cow, showing the Pirate spirit is found at the bank.

 We went to the NC Tar Heels vs the Idaho Vandals game with the Couple Missionaries in a downpour.  Some of us went to the Institute while the men went to the game.  pict.-   Elder and Sis. Yerkes, Elder and Sister Davenport and Elder and Sister Myers.      The real excitement of the day came on our way home when our phone sounded a warning and read "Imminent Threat!  You are in the area of a Tornado.  Take cover immediately."  Elder Myers wouldn't pull over - we made it home.   Whew! - another miracle!

We hope that you enjoy watching General Conference tomorrow.  We are looking forward to hearing from the Lord's Prophet and Apostles.  How blessed we are in this Church!!    Thank you again for supporting us on this mission.  Our hearts are with you, we pray for you and appreciate all you do in our behalf.  Take care!
