Year mark shirt burning!

So Elder Grace is doing really well! I guess he was not transferred after all. He is still in St. Peters. He and his companion now have 1 investigator. Elder Grace is staying busy with lessons!

Let the burning begin

Its burning

Looks like Elder Grace is pleased with the shirt burning
I think its done burning! Happy year mark Cole!

So I have a Good friend Cassie and her brother Derek Payne is in Cole's same mission. They get to see each other from time to time, but now they are serving in the same area! Derek and Cole also went to high school together so it is super exciting that they get to do some serving together! 

Elder Payne and Elder Grace

Looks like a great start to the 2nd year Elders!!!! I'm so proud of you guys!!!

We have finally made it to the year mark!

Elder Grace out to dinner

Elder Grace and Elder Griffith

It has been a good year for Elder Grace. I am looking forward to see how his 2nd year out in the mission field goes! He has had some pretty awesome companions and has made some life long friends as well. Some great friends of Cole have already completed their missions and are already home. I know Cole looks forward to the time he will be done with his mission and ready to come home..... But not quite yet, there are still a lot of people to meet and people to teach and also people to learn from!

Kristina Norwood and Elder Grace

Needless to say Elder Grace kinda likes this sweet girl Kristina and as a wise Stake Pres. Park once said "A good girlfriend will write but a good wife will wait." These two kinda like each other a lot! So Elder Grace has been transferred and I'm not quite sure of the address at this moment but I will post the new address as soon as it is known! 

I'm so proud of Cole and his hard work he has put into his mission! I know his faith grows stronger everyday and I am truly blessed to have him as my son! I love you Coley bear!!!!

"Elder Clifford and I have the same birthday."

Cake made by Sister Stout. Looks really delicious!

Looks like a fun party!

"Elder Sutherland leaves for home this Wednesday! I am really going to miss him!"

I cant believe Elder Sutherland is already done! I think Cole will be finished before I know it!!!

Thank you to the Stout family! They did a great job putting together a party for the Elders!
