Getting ready to welcome 14 new missionaries! They arrived on 3 different flights. Sis. Clark ended up being delayed 2 hours. We were very appreciative of the Honeycutts going back to get her and joining us for the welcome testimony meeting.

Transfer Morning at the Scarsdale Chapel
On Tuesday morning we meet at the Scarsdale Chapel for a brief training. We take pictures of all the new missionaries, they meet their trainers and learn what area they will begin their service in. Then they are off to begin serving!
Thank you to Elder and Sister Miles for taking pictures of missionaries throughout transfer day! Upstate missionaries meet at the Ossining Chapel and City missionaries meet at the Inwood Chapel. There are lots of moving parts but somehow everything works out and everyone gets to where they need to be. It was a hot, humid, 87 degree day...but missionaries never complain. They are happy and so adaptable!
We will miss these 3 outstanding Elders! It was a beautiful day in Manhattan and so wonderful to spend time together in the Temple.
In 1 Nephi 18 we read about Nephi building the ship that will eventually take his family across the water to the Promised Land. In verse 1 it says "And it came to pass that they did worship the Lord, and did go forth with me; and we did work timbers of curious workmanship. And the Lord did show me from time to time after what manner I should work the timber of the ship."
Many times we are asked to do things we have never done before, they may seem hard or overwhelming. I know as we trust in the Lord he will guide us. We however need to act in faith and do all we can. From time to time the Lord gives us reminders that he is there, he is very aware of us, and he is leading us every step of the way.
Last week I was worried about a situation in our family. It was weighing heavily on my mind. While in the Temple I received a very clear answer to the problem I was facing. It was miraculous to me. I was reminded once again the Lord knows us, he loves us, and he cares about the intimate details of our lives.
