TRIP TO BULGARIA

We are back from Bulgaria. We had a wonderful two day conference with 20 other Humanitarian Service couples from all over Eastern Europe. It was a great trip. We met some wonderful people. It was two days of talks and presentations. We have returned rested and ready to go to work. Tomorrow is District Meeting with the missionaries at our house. It has been raining all day so I made Chili to have when our meeting is over. We met with the Branch President today to discuss teaching classes on "Strengthening the Family" to members of the branch. He said we were an answer to his prayer. He has been fasting and praying to know how to strengthen the members in the branch and he felt like this would really be good for our branch members. So Bruce and I will be teaching lessons along with the other couple in our Mission, the Clark's once a week to members in the branch. We are really looking forward to this. Today was Easter in Ukraine so Olga says that most of the week organizations will be on "holiday." So we will have to see how much we can accomplish this week. We returned home to find the Internet off on our other computer, which is the one with Skype and Windows so I won't be able to phone anyone until that is up again and with the holiday it could be awhile. Happy Birthday Monroe and Maverick. Nana and Papa love you SO much.
