In January, we took a trip to Fayetteville, NC to enjoy some time with the other Couple Missionaries. We loved seeing the buildings and arrived during a parade for Martin Luther King Jr.
On the way home we stopped at the Averasboro Battlefield where a battle took place during the Civil War.
IT REALLY SNOWED!
Yes! It snowed - for a very small moment and then it was icy for a couple of days. When the weather warning came out - everyone headed home. It looked like rush hour traffic at 2 in the afternoon.
We were out working with the sisters the next day trying to find the longest icicle while trying to find people to teach.
This was our Wonderful Greenville District. We know because we have been out teaching with everyone of them and we love them all. We have had some great times together! Check out the ECU colored ties - purple and gold and obviously we all didn't get the memo.

This was our last get-together. As the weather was too cold to play outside at the apartment, we went to the church house for lunch. Sister McPherson has now gone to open up New Bern and to train a new sister missionary. We will miss her. Sister Tillman is still with us Yea! and is training Sister. Smith from Springville, UT. Our mission is GROWING We just had 10 Elders and 8 sisters join our numbers.
Our Branch is doing great also! This is Sister Paries, the first sister missionary to leave from our Branch on her mission to Mesa, Arizona (Spanish speaking). She will be a great missionary!
As you know, the Gospel is true! Missions are lots of work and lots of fun at the same time. We love the people of North Carolina and most of the time the weather too. I'm looking forward to summer even with the humidity. Don't know what I am going to do when I get back to UT and it is REALLY cold.
Please keep reading your Book of Mormon daily. We love you and we miss you. You are in our thoughts and prayers always. Thank you for all you do in helping us serve the Lord on this mission. You are a blessing to us. Take care!
