Update from the mission field

On May 23, we went on a Historic Home tour in Old Louisville. It was at St. James Court. It was fun to see ladies riding old time bicycles around the court. 
We wanted to find the house that served as the Mission Home around 1940. Luckily it was on the tour and this is Barbara standing in front of it. Now it is owned by a lady who is making it into a Bed and Breakfast. 
 On May 26, we had transfers and we went to the temple with the group of missionaries going home.

 President Brough with the departing missionaries. Sister Brough was really sick that day and wasn't able to attend.
Thursday, May 28 we went to an 8th grade Cotillion with Ingrid and her mom. They are in our branch and Ingrid asked Elder Moulton to be her escort. It was held at the Memorial Auditorium and the girls had to be escorted up on to the stage to be introduced.  This is a picture of the girls from her school outside the Auditorium.
Saturday the 30th, in the morning, we went to a baptism in New Albany, Indiana and then in the evening we went to a graduation party for some young people in our branch who were graduating 8th grade. 

Today, June 6 we went to an area of town called Butchertown to an art fair and to look around. Then we headed over to the Frazier Museum where they had a medieval exhibit and an exhibit on the history of firearms. 
They also had an excellent exhibit on the Lewis and Clark expedition. 
We also went to Churchill Downs to watch some live horse races, followed by watching, via the big screen, American Pharaoh win the Triple Crown at Belmont. 

We have heard that another couple may be coming earlier in July than we thought, so we are busy trying to get through our "bucket list" of places we wanted to see before we leave Kentucky.

Work in the mission office is going well- but it is like working in an office-kind of the same every day.

We were asked to speak in church on June 14th!
