We received a packet of information today from Elder Richard Searle, Director of Hill Cumorah Visitor's Center. Included was the location of our soon-to-be home, itemized list of what is in the apartment (dishes, furniture, etc.), and three (3) manuals. We are suppose to have these manuals read before we arrive in New York. The manuals are guides to the Joseph Smith Farm, Book of Mormon Publication Site, and the Peter Whitmer Farm. We also should have read some in the Preach My Gospel booklet. Guess all this reading will definitely "increase our spirituality".
In addition to all this reading, we continue to do a "little spring cleaning" to get our house ready for Stephanie Tyndall. She will be living in our home while we are away. We are grateful to have found someone to live here for a year.
Each day that passes and brings us closer to leaving, I get more and more excited. I love this Gospel and am so excited to be able to give this year of service to our Heavenly Father.
