Today we had the opportunity to serve lunch to the family of the sister in the ward who died on Tuesday. She and her husband have only been members of the Church since May, and the rest of her family are not members. The service was very nice (and short), and the family really appreciated the luncheon afterward, and it was a good chance to friendship some non-members. We worked along side two of the most awesome "anchor" sister's in the ward, Sister Mackey and Sister Nader.
Also helping with the luncheon were our two newest missionaries in Dodge City, Sister V. and Sister K. (Sister Vanderholm & Sister Kartchner) Both are super great missionaries and both are super funny!
After the funeral we went for a drive up to the town of Spearville about 17 miles away, which is still in our ward. On the way home we had to stop and take a picture of these rolls of hay, just because they were so cool looking!
We are so blessed to have beautiful, interesting scenes like this. Everywhere we look
there's something wonderful to see!
And the best part of our day......???
