|The front of the Institute building. We never use the front doors.|
As you can tell be the pictures, we do have sunshine! However, daylight savings time doesn't make much sense here in the summer when we have about 23 hours of daylight! It will be spring soon, but as you can tell from the pictures, it is a long ways away here in Alaska.
This week has been great as usual. Some of the missionaries we have come to know well are leaving and others are going home tomorrow. It has been wonderful to be able to work with them and get to know them. This week is "Spring Break". I'm not sure why they think it is spring. We don't have classes this week, but we are still preparing for classes next week and working on institute things. We had a missionary return home last week. I decided to make up an invitation to Institute classes and send it to his home via the missionaries from the Branch. He was at the institute within a few hours. I was so pleased! It's great to have return missionaries in our classes. I was so pleased that the number of students in my class keeps going up. They are such great young people. We have learned to love all of them.
We are on the way to Family Home Evening with our group. Hope you are doing the same. We love you!
