Week 1

Our friends, Bob and Jeanne Alexander, who are house sitting for us gave us an Open House last Sunday evening which was wonderful.  So many friends came to wish us well.  We arrived at the Provo MTC Monday morning and spent the day in orientations.  The week flew by while we were trained and we met so many wonderful couples going all over the world.
 Here is Marvin posing with the missionaries.  He was hesitant about posing, saying he wasn't going to be on a bike!

On our final day in the MTC, we posed for pictures with our District.  Next to us are the Pattersons, going to the Farmington, New Mexico Mission but are assigned to a Navaho community in Arizona. Next to them are the Hedengrens who are going to Archorage, Alaska Mission assigned to a Marine Base, and finally, the Algers who are going to the Fort Worth, Texas Mission.  Since our old home in Double Oak, Texas (Lewisville area) is in their mission, they will be looking out for any old friends.

And here we are in front of the famous map in the MTC, pointing to where we will be serving in the Melbourne, Australia Mission assigned to Hobart, Tasmania.  My, that's a long way from home!!!
