Dear Family & Friends,

Last week we had Zone Conference, and the Area Doctors (medical and psychology) spoke to us in addition to great talks by Pres. & Sis. Hill. We learned about doing relaxation techniques and keeping our apartments clean to avoid illness, etc. They also taught us about balancing our lives—being sure that we don’t go overboard in any one area—so that we can accomplish our mission each day. It was so uplifting and we felt such a wonderful spirit there.

Everything else during the week was pretty normal, and we especially enjoyed a Saturday at home getting cleaning and laundry done and actually taking time to relax and read awhile. We did get four new missionary applications in so I am starting to put all the information in all the different places that it needs to be.

Our thought for the week is: “He who doeth the works of righteousness shall receive his reward, even peace in this world, and eternal life in the world to come.” Doctrine and Covenants 59:23. “Walk in the sunlight of that peace which comes from obedience to the commandments of the Lord.” Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley.

We hope everyone will “walk in the sunlight of that peace.”

Love, Jim & Pat
