|Here we are fully covered from foot to head!! We are in front of a large|
snowbank in back of our apartment building. Such snow piles are
quite common here and help preserve winter and diminish the parking spaces.
|Here we are quite comfy in our Sapsan seating. |
We were warm and quite surprised to learn that the
temperature outside at this very minute was -28 C
We have hunted for and acquired a new apartment for two of our sisters and they are safely tucked away in their new dwelling. We had them with us for about a week or so and they were very fine house guests.
They assured us they would miss all of Elder Foutz's breakfasts. We miss the conversation and special spirit they shared with us while they were here. They are in a good area, close to the chapel, their finding area, shopping, and mass transportation.
Yesterday was spent sharing our computer time with the elders and sisters here, and shopping for the dinner we cook for on District day. We tried to find a piece of plumbing for the water filtration system for the sister apartment. We spent quite a bit of time here and there trying to locate this adaptor, but to no avail. The current thinking is that maybe we should just get a faucet that will fit the apparatus for the filter system.
Our small branch had a small turnout on Sunday, probably because it was so cold. Those of us there were warm and enjoyed a nice block of meetings. Our Sunday School class had only one person but we had a good discussion. We had many teachers and leaders missing so following the Sunday School topic the elders used a video for the 3rd hour to explain more fully the principle of agency.
We didn't get to teach our young lady this past week because she is out of town.
|Here is a classic Russian made car that we saw in a museum that |
is shown here probably more for the benefit of our grandsons.
|This is an early Russian made car and if it looks like a Ford that is because|
Henry came over and helped start the factory. Thought the grandson
would like this one too.
