Levi is now in his mission in his first area.  What is amazing to me is how the Lord's hand is in what these missionaries do.  His first area - Quincy Washington.  This just so happens to be the little town my father in law grew up in.  There are a lot of family ties still in this area, like Sherry's uncle Jeff and his wife Maureen.  Amazing.  I never thought in a million years one of my kids would be serving in this little town.  We are feeling truly blessed today.

Now from Levi:

So you will never guess where I am right now. QUINCY, WASHINGTON! Yup, my first area is in the ole stomping ground of Tony Thompson. The town itself is pretty run down, and there is actually a lot of gang activity and a ton of Mexicans, so that means I get to speak spanish a ton! I have already met a guy who knows poppy, his name is Lyn Child. And a lot of people here know Jeff Thompson as well, so thats pretty cool. My companions name is Elder Smith, he has been out for about 9 months. He is a great guy. we have tracted almost every day so far. We got into a sort of "Bible Bash" with two guys, and that was pretty fun. We got to meet a tweaker, who lives in a motel, and he is cool, and he knows a lot about the bible. There is a ton of work for us to do in this little town. We are gonna help bring it back to life! 

I got to meet my president, and he is the best. He is the most loving kind guy you will ever meet. I love him to death. 
Me and elder smith live in an apartment, in a basement apartment. Its pretty nice, and it already started getting dirty in there, so we cleaned a ton today. But ya thats what it is like so far! Love you so much!
