New Addition to our Family!

We are so excited about the birth of our newest grandson, Rowan Clark Evans, born June 20, 2011.  As you can see his family is very happy about his arrival!
Although we can only see him through pictures and on Skype, we love him!  His big sister gives him lots of kisses for Grammie.

A quote from one of our favorite missionaries

A young missionary said something in the office last week that was so profound we wanted to share it.  He and his companion had just finished a very hard week -  they had been sick, rejected, rained on, left in the airport twice for hours, chastised, etc. etc.  - typical missionary life.  In spite of this Elder Adam Zenger had a smile on his face and was whistling.  Sister Button asked him how he could still be so happy after all he had been through recently.  He just smiled and said: "I only have two years to be a full-time representative of the Lord Jesus Christ, so if my life is hard -  Boo Hoo!"

Companions - Elder Oviatt and Elder Zenger

We love the young missionaries we serve with.  They inspire us with their faith in Jesus Christ, their love for others and their desire to do all they can to bring the joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Puerto Rico.  It is one of the greatest privileges of our life to be one with them in the service of the Lord.
