June 30, 2019 - When we first arrived in Massena on January 9, 2019, we both received a text from our cell phone carrier, T-Mobile: Welcome to Canada. Don't worry everything still works on your cell phone. Our fourplex where we live is actually near the St Lawrence River and it is Canada on the north side of the river. Within the boundaries of our Massena Branch is the St. Regis Mohawk Reservation which is known by its Mohawk name, Akwesane. We took a picture that shows a little piece of our world:
Another great week in the mission field. That first 6 months flew by - 12 months to go. Our grandson Tanner who is serving a mission in Argentina has passed his year mark. We love serving with the young missionaries, they are awesome beyond belief. I would so love to have this same experience while serving with my grandchildren - that's the only way this could be better - to see them grow and feel of their spirits each day as we serve the Lord's children.
WELCOME: New York Syracuse Mission - July 1 is the official date of the new combined mission. (New York Utica and New York Rochester were combined to form the New York Syracuse Mission.)
