BEAUTIFUL HAMILTON, VIRGINIA
Sundays are always busy and wonderful.
We started today at the Manassas 1st ward.
Elders Slade and Edgington were in this ward. Great ward.
Next, we were off to the Hamilton ward, in the Ashburn Stake.
This is in a part of the mission that is incredibly beautiful.
Rolling hills, green fields, country stores and red barns and silos.
Lots of old-quaint homes and large-stately homes.
And lots of country churches on the corners with old cemetaries.
Little towns that call out to you- come and visit.
This ward was wonderful too.
Elder and Sister Olsen are in this ward and
Elders Meitler and King are just opening the ward to Elders too.
President and I were each asked to take a few minutes and share some thoughts.
Then, we took the backroads home. It was lovely.
One of our former missionaries came to visit in the afternoon--Elder Bodily.
A great visit to see him healthy and happy.
Next, we were off to the baptism of Yvonne
in the Fort Belvore Ward
Our assistants Elders Johnson and Parker were the missionaries there.
A GREAT DAY!
The church house at Hamilton. A beautiful church-house.
I thought it would be fun for families to see some of the beautiful areas where
your missionaries serve.
Another corner, another church
Beautiful country roads
A great Memorial Weekend Spirit
Country Roads --Too pretty
Stately homes with FRONT yards
Many of the roads here are named after historical figures.
