 Nine of our grandchildren with us outside our house.  (left to right)  Chad, Zach, Hailey, Brock, Clayton, Noah, Sariah, Jack and Porter.  Chad, Noah, Zach, Sariah and Hailey are Dave and Becki's children.  Porter, Brock, and Clayton are Sam and Jennie's children.  Jack is Ty and Rebecca's child.
Ty and Rebecca Woods, Anna and Jason Jensen, Scott and Deanne, Dave and Becki Jefferies, and Sam and Jennie Jefferies.  We spoke in church last Sunday.  Anna and Rebecca played a cello, violin duet for the musical number and it was absolutely beautiful.  Deanne bore her testimony in Italian after her talk.  We enter the MTC in Provo on October 1.  We will miss our children and grandchildren terribly  for the next 18 months but we are ready to serve.

Our apartment in Forli, Italy

This is a picture of our apartment in Forli, Italy.  It is a 2 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor (in Italy it is called the 1st floor because it is just above the ground floor).  The second picture is of the two Elders who are moving furniture into the apartment.  Between them is Sister Rossi, our landlord.  We are really getting excited to get to Italy.  We speak in our ward on September 23, get set apart on September 30, and enter the MTC on October 1.
