    Dear friends, We don’t know if you get our mail or not. We think of you and pray for you, and know The Lord is looking after you. We really miss you! Our grandson Elder Spencer Cordner, is loving his mission. His last area he kind of had a panic attack when he got there, but now he loves it. I am surprises at how much they teach and the baptisms they have. The language doesn’t seem to be a problem. We keep busy with new babies and weddings. Paul’s health hasn’t been the best since we got home. We have had lots of doctors appointments, I hope we soon get to the bottom of it. He has some major tests next week. Dr. Peterson did 9 surgeries on his face. He is really good, they have healed up beautifully. The yard looks beautiful, we have had some rain and cool weather. We send our love. Paul and Colleen
