Tour to Nauvoo

About a month ago, Sara and I flew to St. Louis, Missouri, for a two week vacation.

We spent just over a week in the Branson area, looking at possible retirement properties.

Then, we met a bus tour to Nauvoo, led by Susan Easton Black. It was very enjoyable.

Gifts from China

Elizabeth worked in China for a few months last year, and brought us some gifts when she returned. Thank you, Elizabeth.

There is a small wall hanging with, presumably, the text from Mark 10:9 ("What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder") in chinese characters. A wonderful daily reminder.

Many other items in silk, as well, including some ties, place mats, and slippers.

And, Sara and I enjoyed putting together the wooden model of a chinese building, shown here:

Thanks again, Elizabeth.
