We did have the challenge of the cold freezing our washing machine pipes. We discovered it on our P-day when we tried to do our laundry and no water would come out. Our P-day is Saturday and it took until Monday for our landlord to get the pipes unfrozen. We managed OK and it wasn't too much of a problem for us.
We are working on our last current field orders at the courthouse now with two days of work left, hoping the new field orders will come in within two days. These are the Records of Land Sales. These records are from the late 1800's. It's kind of fun to see the maps that have been hand drawn. For any of you researching ancestors, be sure to look in Records of Land Sales. Not all land sales have maps like these by any means, but you could just get lucky and find one. I love how sometimes they even draw in the trees.
We said goodbye to Elder Numbers this week. Marietta was his first assignment in the mission field. He is a great missionary and he did a lot of ironing for us! Transfers tear our hearts out but then we welcome new missionaries that we learn to love. They are teaching a new family here with three little children. The mother has almost no religious training and has no knowledge of even the most basic of the bible stories, She has heard of Adam and Eve and that's about it, so it is very interesting. They are very enthused about the gospel, how exciting is that? Yahoo!
The Spencer Branch got full-time missionaries this week! We are so excited! They are going to be great!
We love and miss you all so much! We appreciate and feel your love and support and prayers! Thank you so much! We would sure love to hear from you!
