Jim and Pat,

I was on Shawn and Christi's blog and saw your mission one and thought I need to put that on mine so I look at it more often and say hello more often and let you know we are thinking about you and hope all is well. But we do keep taps and ask the kids all the time and even get to see you once in a while....You've got to love how far the computer age has come. It looks and sounds like you're having a great time. I want you to know as I'm preparing for this next wedding coming up I have to say I have a better and greater appreciation for you Pat. You were so wonderful to work with and tried so hard to make me feel like I was a huge part from the get go for Shawn and Christi's wedding and I now know that is so very rare. Lets just say I was recently put in my place and the direct quote was, "Well just think of it this way when it's Emma's wedding you'll be the mother who gets to tell the other mother what to do!" Alex couldn't believe I held my tonge through the whole thing and just let her say what she wanted to say and tell me what she wanted and I just took it. I just didn't want to ruin in for them but it has taken a little of the fun out of it for me I have to tell you and I've known this women for about 7 or 8 years and I didn't see this coming. All I was trying to do was find out what color of dress I was expected to wear and she told me she didn't want to wear the same color, style or anything even close to what I was wearing. Needless to say I'll be glad when this is over. So Thank you Pat, if I've never said it before you were so very nice to work with and we had a lot to do.

Take care and I'm sure we'll get to say hello soon.

Love, Sherri

We enjoy all your pictures too. It is so amazing that we are in such different cultures but the gospel is the same and the church is true everywhere. With love, Elder and Sister Elam in Nairobi Kenya
