On Wednesday we had district meeting in Kingston again. It's a long drive - 1 1/2 hour each way. It is good to meet with the elders and sisters from time to time. Elder Wheeler had a role play with Sister Jungert. She always has a smile on her face no matter how hard the work is. Sister Wheeler had a role play with Elder Decker. Every missionary meeting includes role plays. We had branch council in the evening. It was different attending as the Elder's Quorum president rather than visitors.

Thursday ended up being a long day. We went to help Mary at the family history center. Elder Wheeler spent his time reformatting old floppy disks so they could be thrown away. Sister Wheeler was able to find a nice website about Benjamin Thomas Mitchell, who was a stone mason for the Nauvoo and Salt Lake temples. As Mary was leaving to go home the door stuck on her specially-retrofitted van (to handle her wheelchair) so we followed Mary home and then went with Penny (who lives with Mary) to the dealership in Campbellford to get it fixed. It took them to closing time, but they were able to fix it. Because of the late time, Penny joined us for dinner before we all rushed off to the Pearl of Great Price class.

On Thursday night, Bro. David (the sunday school president) told us that Linda (a sunday school teacher) was moving to Toronto and couldn't give the lesson for Sunday. Elder Wheeler spent much of the day Friday and the morning Saturday working on the lesson. He finally found out there was a misunderstanding and Linda was just visiting her sister and had the lesson prepared. As sister Camejo would say, "Blessed are the flexible for they will not be bent out of shape."
On Saturday afternoon we decided to take a drive, since we had not had a preparation day, not knowing beforehand where we were going. We ended up at Callaghan Falls Conservation Area. It is a section of the Crowe River that has some nice, shallow wading areas, small falls, and deeper pools. A perfect place for the grandchildren. Elder Wheeler was able to talk to a man from Peru about the gospel. It was a nice break from the indoor work we have been doing this week.
