Dear Haiti Mission Alumni,
Thanks much for your letters. We appreciate the information and addresses. Our life is fairly quiet, even mundane. Lucy is the Stake Young Women's President, a job that keeps her agitated, if not overly busy. We team teach a Sunday School class. I serve as a Sealer and Patriarch and still visit the hospital on a daily basis trying to stay somewhat up-to-date.
When we left Haiti, we spent some months in Miami and along the coast of Florida with the Haitian Community and the deportees who became part of the Fort Lauderdale mission. We spent the years of '92-'94 in Raleigh, North Carolina. We enjoyed every minute of it. Please include us in your future communications.
