Several missionaries have asked us what we do for exercise. We are so fortunate to have these beautiful hiking trails just across the street from our neighborhood! There is also a bike trail just a few minutes down the road. So we hike some mornings and bike other days.

We spent four days this week in zone conferences throughout the mission. There is an amazing energy when missionaries meet together!

Every 6 weeks we welcome new missionaries to the PPM and we say farewell to those who have faithfully served - 18 months for the sisters and 24 months for the elders, I truly stand all amazed at their devotion to the Lord and the fine teachers they have become!
On August 11, 2014 we welcomed 14 new missionaries. Here they are on our stop at Mt. Washington above Pittsburgh on the way to the mission home.

Each month we meet for a day to counsel with our missionary leadership at Mission Leadership Council. There is training, reports on what is happening in each area of the mission, stories of lives being changed, and discussion on concerns and other things that we need to counsel together. It is truly inspiring to serve with these missionaries!
