|Brother Markey amazes me. He is a driver for the Bishop's Store House and comes in to say hello every time. He created the words on his jacket to show who he is. He is a wonderful member missionary and while delivering for the Red Cross one of the volunteers began asking him questions and indicated she was interested in learning more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Her questions were a result of news articles mentioning Mormons running for government offices. Brother Markey also has a great history of accomplishments using the skill of "going the extra mile" as I learned from his Power Stories during the Career Workshop. He is even a horticulturalist and has beehives and gave us a gift of a bottle of his delicious honey. He makes my day every time he comes in.|

|We love our sisters. I added this picture to the DVD I made in 2005 when Tempe Stake celebrated Relief Society. The DVD showed the Relief Society Sisters around the world. When it they watched it, they were shocked when they saw their own picture in it. It was a fun surprise gift for them.|

|Three Elders have finished their missions and are going home for their next Life Mission. It is so exciting to teach the steps of self reliance and communication. It is especially exciting when the Elder said to me, as others have also said, "I wish I had learned this at the beginning of my mission. Their comments of how hard it was to give feedback confirmed the things we talked about. Associating the points of feedback with scripture will literally bless their lives abundantly for the rest of their life. One Elder is returning to go to Eastern AZ College. We knew him well as he was in our Grand River Branch area. Elder Kiel at the table just returned from his mission from Washington DC. We invited him to attend. On Sunday all of the testimonies also mentioned their love and joy for his service and his return home. He is the first missionary to serve from the branch. Each of the testimonies, plus those of his parents and family were so touching. Every testimony in the branch is unique and so loved and appreciated by us.|
Oh how we love our Elders Dabb, Hoffman and Mortenson and hope to see them again some day.

Another exciting stay of new Elders at our apartment. This is our second set of Elders. All of our other guests have been new Sister Missionaries. Our first set of Elders, one of them was a friend of Hunter and Jonathan Hoopes in Mesa. Now so amazing another wonderful surprise, Elder Cowan is a friend of Garrett in Lehi Ut. Also amazing and great blessing is that these Elders and their friends, our grandsons are also serving missions for the Lord to build His Kingdom upon the earth. This is one of our fun and great blessings while serving our mission. Elder Swalvinski is a new member of four years and from Poland. Having association with these wonderful young Elders is a great and marvelous blessing in our lives.

Monday Jan 9th, our fantastic Family Home Evening with all of our children & grandchildren. A great blessing for our mission life. We sang together prayed together and ended our evening kneeling in prayer.
Only one family at a time had the speaker on, the rest were on mute. Each had their time to share their full names & share with each other events in their lives. We loved every minute of it & it was so hard to say goodby.
