Tyler Visit July 2017

Dear Family and Friends;

We had a fun couple of weeks.  President and Sister Hill came over to hear Sister Linn Steffensen report home from her mission to temple square.  We spent a day with them seeing this beautiful part of Norway.  They are such dear friends.  Then the party began.  Our oldest Grandson Tyler Traveller (Kari) and three of his buddies, Boston Taylor, Farrell Dean and Dallin Price, came to visit us.  They were super fun and high energy.  It has been awhile since I have had that kind of energy.  They really had a great time.  They all got a taste of foreign missionary work.  Everything was new and exciting, the food, the language, the people, the landscape, the money and much more.  We couldn't keep them out of the chocolate.  They made a really good video of their trip.  You can find it on our Facebook pages. We sent a couple of Special missionaries home this week.  Elder Larsen and Elder Stephens. We had 11 sisters and 13 Elders go home this transfer.  They were wonderful.  The 11 sisters were the ones we came out with from the MTC.  Our son Josh started medical school at the University of Arizona.  It will be a difficult and exciting adventure.  They are settled and happy in Tucson.  We had a great trip to Haugesund this last weekend.  I gave a talk in Sacrament Meeting on the Restoration. It is such a blessing to have the gospel on the earth.  What a miracle that it happened they way that it did.  We had a couple of sweet teaching opportunities this week with the missionaries.  They continue to amaze me.  We love each of you and hope that you are having a great and safe summer.
