President and Sister Bateman invited all the Senior Missionaries in the Mission over for a pot luck dinner and Family Home Evening. My best food awards go to Elder Gourley and his dutch oven potatoes and Sister Hair's variation of BYU mint brownies mmmm. We also welcomed our new finance secretary, who arrived after a perilous trip through snow storms.
We also had our first tornado watch this last week. Then the wind and hail came but no tornado in St Louis. We are grateful for covered parking.

Our mission is ever changing in the car department. We gathered drivers and traveled to pickup four new Chevy Malibu cars. I am grateful for GPS and I love going over the big rivers.

We enjoyed attending the Temple Saturday. It is now closed for two weeks. Later we attended a baptism. We loved talking to our old Mission President and his Wife and wonderful friends, the Ferrins. They are serving as Director of the Visitors Center at the Washington D.C. Temple and having a wonderful time.
