On New Year’s Day President Dunn and I joined Elder Menendez and Elder Stephens for a farewell activity. It is always hard to transfer and AP, or have them go home. It is hard to say good-bye because you have lived right next door, literally, and worked so closely together. So, when it was time for transition with Elder Stephens, we planned a p-day activity to pause and reflect on the amazing opportunity to serve together in this capacity.
Elder Stephens has information on how to hike Castle Gorge, which is not easy to find and access. He has told us about this special spot for months.
Hiking out is beautiful, because the land is so wide open with no one is sight. But, once you enter into the gorge, it is surprising and stunning.
|We have loved Elder Stephens as an Assistant. He was the first one called and has been guiding us for 6 months. He brings kindness, knowledge and diligence to the calling. He also is very humble.|
|We learned so much from him and know his last six weeks in the NorthEast will be a great way to end his mission. We saw him this past weekend and he had already taught 15 lessons in 4 days with Elder Dzowa! Pretty impressive.|
|A memory not to be forgotten!|
