Sustaining Leaders, Friendships, Living Space and China Plans

Sustaining Leaders
The LDS General Conference was a great event. Thomas S. Monson was sustained today as prophet, seer, revelator and president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during a solemn assembly of Church members worldwide. We also had the opportunity to sustain Elder D. Todd Christofferson as the newest member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.

Sustaining Friendships
Friday night, former missionaries of the England Bristol Mission gathered at our home for our twice-a-year mission reunion. There were about 50 in attendence (with the mission grandkids) and it was a wonderful time. Friendship doesn't dim with time, and though the years pass, our associations only grow stronger. We have to throw in the latest photo of Elizabeth's children Ethan, Cheyenne, and Gavin, their unquestioning love sustains us all.

Sustaining Living Space
We keep working on fixing the basement from the water damage. The Bryce and Laura Westover family, our great neighbors and friends, came over to help empty the stuff from the basement to the garage. Boy, talk about forced Spring cleaning. Dad started his 'gung ho' remodeling this week. . . only to sprain his back (sigh). He'll be more careful as we move forward. While we're at it we're moving a closet to make more room in the guest bed-room etc. It seems every wall not effected by the former remodel to accomodate Joseph's new bedroom etc is being effected now. Blessings in disguise.

Sustaining China Plans
We continue to prepare for China. As you can see in the photo, Matt Smith is working out to get in shape by carrying Ethan our grandson around in his backpack. Dad got an interesting 'fortune' in his fortune cookie downtown this week. Check out the message. This one will certainly come true.

Dear Joseph,
I wanted to thank you for your kindness to Sam and Ashley Harrison. You have been such a blessing to them, and living proof that people can move forward inspite of huge obstacles in our path. I want to wish you the best on your China trip. We will all be praying for you.
Sr. Hamilton
