We are getting the hang of it!

This week Jason paid the rent for the 126 apartments and I went with him into the city to purchase the Transit Authority River City (TARC) bus passes.  They are sold at the old Union Train Station. It is a beautiful old building. We purchase a lot of bus passes each month for the Elders and Sisters who work in Louisville and don't have a vehicle.

We have been gone from home for almost 2 months.  The time seems to fly by. This area is starting to feel like home. We do love having a small apartment. It's easy to take care of. We are learning our jobs at the office. I can finally do mail merge without reading the instructions. Jason can drive places without using the GPS. Today was our first P-Day that we have had off. It was good to have time to clean the house and be able to go for a drive someplace beside to the office and back.  We drove south to Fort Knox, Radcliff and Elizabethtown. These are towns we have missionaries in. We hope to make it to all the areas where the missionaries serve, so we can know a little about the area when we talk to them. We also stopped and ate lunch in a little town called West Point. This town is on the Ohio River and floods frequently.  We ate at the Star CafĂ©.  For those who are civil war history buffs this is also the place where Sherman had his headquarters during the Civil War.  We took some pictures to show how high the water was when the Ohio River floods.  This town has been flooded so many times they put the high water marks of each flood on the flag pole in the park.  This town also ties back to Abraham Lincoln's father.  Elizabeth Town or E Town as the locals refer to it was also a major civil war battle ground. 

On Sunday we drive people to church.   We teach the Gospel Principles class every week. After church, we take people home and come back to the church to feed the 4 full time elders serving in our branch.  We have been shopping and making soup all evening to get ready for that. Sunday night we will take some missionaries and investigators to the fireside over by the office. It makes for a full day.  

I get to teach an investigator from the ward with the sister missionaries on Monday night.  Now that we are learning our mission office jobs, we have a little more time to help the missionaries in our branch.  We are excited that soon we are getting another Senior couple to help in our branch.

And the last picture is of me with the daily mail, we get a lot of mail.

  1. Love reading this. Just 1 question for Jason, why the bat? Intimidation? Boredom? Looks scary to me. :)
