Catching Up

Devin is doing well on his mission. He is immersing himself in the work. He is in a little town called Prineville. It is close to Redmond and Bend. He has been teaching the gospel to others and has a baptism scheduled for Saturday and another for the 4th of July. He is excited for the one on the 4th because he will have taught the 2 girls the gospel from the beginning and then get to see them baptized. We are so proud of him and the example he sets for everyone else. He is not too close to Justin but will be able to see him in a few weeks at a Zone Conference. He said he thinks the mission president was kind and scheduled their two zones at the same time so they could see each other. That will be a fun day for them to see each other and to be able to share missionary experiences. It is so great to have so many wonderful missionaries in our lives.

We just recently went to St. George for the Kemple Family Reunion. It was fun to see so many of our family attending. The traditional Pine Valley reunion didn't happen this year because we got rained on. Thanks to Uncle Chuck we were able to go to his home and he opened up his basement for all of us to mingle and enjoy each other. They paid tribute to Grandma and Grandpa Kemple and Uncle Tom who have passed on and then to Uncle Richard. It was a nice program and it great to have such a wonderful Family Heritage. We are very lucky to be part of this great family.
