Called to Serve

We have loved traveling and being with family for the past two years but we felt the call to serve another mission so here we are in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania for the next year.

We Love Skype!!!

This is a picture of my sweet, very pregnant, youngest daughter. She is having her first child, a baby girl, in July. That I will not be there is one of the hard things of serving a mission. Well, she had a baby shower today and through the wonderful technology of SKYPE we were able to attend. It was really fun to be "a part" of her shower. We could see friends as they arrived and were able to talk to just about all of them. We got to watch as she opened presents and it really was as good as being there. She took us on a tour of the yard and we got to see all the decorations and food. It really helped to ease the sorrow of not being able share this special time in her life. I appreciate all our friends and family back home who are filling in the void with their advice and support of Ashley and Josh. Thanks!

Yes, it was fun to see a glimpse of you on the computer. Technology is very cool.

I hope this is okay to comment.... Lynn Ford, a dear friend, told me about this blog. My son, Elder Dustin Wood, is currently serving on Guam. It is SO great to see additional pictures and get a few more details about the exciting things happening there! I love knowing such amazing people are there serving with him! We send our love from Utah!
