We will miss Carthage and have learned a lot about the power of the spirit which is here. We have witnessed the spirit touching the hearts of so many members and non members who visit. The drive however will not be missed! The extra hour needed for the round trip to Nauvoo (6 days a week) will not be missed and we like to drive! Our new home will be a block away from the pageant stage. We are moving into an up stairs apartment.

Sometimes we even color coordinate, It was so wonderful to work and get to know the young sister missionaries. If only their mothers could see and hear them teach.
Brother and Sister Slaugh came from St George and looked us up. They were our home teacher and visiting teacher before we left on our mission. We look forward to seeing each of our friends and ward family again.
|This family is from the Philippines, the area where our grandson Elder Miklich is serving.|
What an honor to meet them.
Our Stephen Markham District, as well as the Elder Missionary couples who are assigned to the Carthage Visitor Center. E/S Hutchinsons, Elder Horlacher, E/S Bowler, E/S Metcalf, E/S Johnson 2. They are all so special. It was so wonderful to work with them.
Carthage was so wonderful. We truly feel that we know who Joseph and Hyrum really were. They were men who loved life, their families, their fellow men and wanted to live, but knew to bring the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ back to the earth, they had to seal their testimonies with their blood, just as our Savior, Jesus Christ had to go on the cross at Calvary. We love you all so very much.
