A Son is Married!

Our son Von married his sweetheart, Jordan Palmer, on September 27, 2013 in the Mesa, AZ temple. We were able to go home to be with him. It was a beautiful ceremony and reception. That Sunday, we attended our new grandson's baby blessing. It was great to visit and very refreshing. Maybe all senior couples should go home once during their mission for a refresher. We are now back in Ayutthaya and ready to work.

Getting back to Thailand was not as easy of a trip as was the trip to Arizona. Our flight to San Francisco was delayed and we missed our connection to Tokyo by only minutes. In fact, as we ran through the airport we could see the jet pulling away from the dock. Ack! We had to reschedule our flight, waited six hours at the luggage carousel for my suitcase (Dennis' came right away,) had to spend the night at a very nice Westin Hotel at our own expense, and then take the same flight on the Tokyo in the morning. I  (Joan) survived the trip to Tokyo, but the flight to Bangkok was a killer. My ankles swelled and I stood for the last hour trying to revive them.

We are glad to be back in Ayutthaya. Pray for us and our four elders, that the work will go forward, that our branch will grow, and our members will be strengthened in the Gospel.
