What a Day....



Reid and I had an amazing opportunity last week to have dinner with Elder Bruce C. Hafen of the First Quorum of the Seventy. He came to Moses Lake to tour the Spokane Mission. We got to have dinner with him and his wife, the new Mission President, Elder Palmer and his wife and a few other couples. He is a man short in stature but tall in wisdom and spirit. It was a wonderful experience to sit and visit with him and listen and feel of his strength. His main advice was, "The Gospel has ALL the answers--if we'll just live it." How true is that?

I hear you had a wedding cant wait to see some pictures. On a side note Brooke made the Elite dance team just another dance group that is a little more challenging, she is so excited.
