Indian MoundsWe visited old Indian mounds a few weeks ago. Apparently, upon excavating, the hills were found to be full of old Indian graves. It was decided to leave them untapped and remain as sacred ground.
There is a sense of peace and serenity here. I wonder about the history.
Home EveningOur most rewarding activity this week took place last night. We were invited to dinner at a member family in the area struggling with crazy "Indian" children of their own. It reminded me of our own tribe at home--wild, crazy and lots of fun.
We love the Shaw's and hope to have more opportunities to help strengthen their family.
We've been asked to be the site leaders at the Family Living Center. We are also moving to three casts for Rendezvous in place of two. I have been asked to be the cast manager for the Emma Hale Cast. We will continue to perform the vignette of Thomas and Elizabeth, solo, rather than sharing it with another couple. However, two performances per week rather than three will be a tremendous lift.
We continue to be pulled and stretched to the max in every direction.
We had a true Sunday today not being required to work at a site. The summer brought thousands of guests but with hundreds of missionaries assigned to handle them, it was doable since we were required to work only one Sunday a month. Now, the guests have dwindled but so have the missionaries so now we only get one Sunday off a month. I prefer the summer schedule and will never complain again of a crazy itinerary as long as Sunday afternoon can provide time for a rest and rejuvenation.
How is your scripture reading coming? Will you look at your schedule and make more time for it if you did not do so well last week? Remember my challenge with the Book of Mormon.
