Missionary Work Rocks!!
We have the missionaries in our home a lot. Paul is the ward mission leader, and works with all kinds of great missionaries. Elder McCormick (pictured with Paul above) came to visit us the day before he was going back home to Oregon. He served in our ward area for 9 month's, with the best missionary spirit we had ever seen. Our children grew to enjoy his visits in our home. We shared many different dinners at our kitchen table and grew more excited about our gospel, The Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder-day Saints. Once Elder McCormick left, we have enjoyed many different Elders in our area. We continue to share our missionary spirit with others, and love to write Paul's nephew Danny Steenhoek in Mexico. Heidi's nephew, Brice Timothy has just left for his mission where he will serve in Mexico also. We just got our first letter, what a testimony of Christ he has.
On February 22 our friends the Smiths, Kevin and Christy were able to go to the Temple and take out their own endowments and be sealed together forever with their son, Micah. Elder McCormick (aka "C.J.") came to town for the great event. He was able to stay with us for a short while. It was very hard to call him "C.J." and not Elder McCormick
