Elder Anthony's mission companion from the Gulf States came in town to say hi and spend the night. They just finished a two year mission to Charottesville, South Carolina. They went for 18 months then they were asked to extend for 6 months. After two years they went home to Brigham City for four months and are returning to the same mission for another year. Their mission president wanted them back and got his wish. They served as executive secretary for their mission. They about killed over working extremely long hours. They were serving when the serge in missionaries occurred and the demand for more housing and furniture was a hugh problem. They ran the mission so their mission president could be out with the missionaries. This next mission they are going to be MLS missionaries. MLS stands for member leadership support. It is the new work for prosilighting missionaries. They wanted to see Kirthland on their way out so they are staying over night with us and going to North Carolina tomorrow. They got in about 1 this afternoon. They are leaving early tomorrow morning. They have never been to DC so we took them on a fast trip around the city. We walked about four plus miles. We rode the metro to the Capitol. We walked by the Libray of Congress, the Supreme Court Building, and the congressional offices. We walked from there to the Wasington Momument, the World Ward II Monuments, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Vietnam memorial. Then we walked back home. I think we walked them and us out. It has been fun to compare missions and our different assignments. Don Andrus is very close to Elder Anthony. Elder Anthony didn't have any siblings and a couple of his companions filled that void. It was fun to be with them for a half a day. It has been cold this afternoon and very windy. I think winter is on its way.
Capititol. This is the side that the president elect comes to be sworn in and talk to the people.
