- joseph city, arizona. SMALLEST town i have ever been in [besides passing though]. right off route 66. so cute &mostly just how life should be. we had so much fun playing with the kids &holding the BABY!! [kristal: "are you pregnant yet?"]
one of the best parts about living in the south is that missionary work is much more available here! :] since we have been job/school-less for a while, we have had the privilege of spending a lot of time with the missionaries and having discussions and lessons at our house, helping the missionaries, and getting to know the investigators really well.
we have been able to watch meme and her son michael throughout the whole process of their conversion. it has been so amazing, especially for me to watch, since i didn't get to have all those experiences on a mission. they are amazing people who have so much faith through so many trials. they got baptized last weekend and i got to speak at the baptism! this picture was taken after the baptism.
she looks so beautiful! &look at those handsome boys. :]]
