It has been since December that I have added to Elder Armatage's blog. We have had a hard month with his Grandma Racer (my Mom) passing away on January 8th unexpectedly. The awesome part is that she is with her husband and so many loved ones on the other side of the veil. The hard part is dealing with the loss on this side. She has left a hole that will take awhile to heal. Elder Kyle was able to call us with his Mission President's permission. It was a very sweet call and at the end my son gave a prayer for me and that was very special.
Elder Armatage has seen the member's hearts changing to be more accepting of the missionaries in the area in Snowflake and the work is starting to move. Not as fast as he would like it to however, but he does have a baptism coming up next Saturday and he is "stoked" about that!!
In one email lately he wrote "You wouldn't believe it, but I am loving doing family history". That is awesome he is getting into it, and hopefully he can come back and teach me how to use the website.
Elder Armatage's year mark was on January 16th, 2014. It seems like forever since he left, but we are so blessed to have a missionary in our family. We are so proud of him and all he is doing to serve the Lord.
