Here is our first glimpse of the city . . .

This week we celebrated 2 months in Pittsburgh! Brad and I were called to preside over the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Mission last December. We arrived on June 27, 2014. We are loving this beautiful state as we travel around to be with the 260 missionaries we have the privilege of serving with! We have now circled the mission 3 times and seen each and every missionary multiple times. We have had many chances to observe them train and teach one another in district meetings and zone conferences. We have attended several baptisms and felt the joy of those who embrace the gospel and the missionaries who teach them. We have been in leadership counsels with them and seen their leadership and felt the power of their testimonies. We have welcomed our first group of missionaries into the mission and honored a large group who have faithfully completed their time here.
