It also was Nates farewell for his mission. He did a wonderful job on his talk, he has such a strong testimony and we know he will do a wonderful job out in the field. Good luck Elder Merkley!
We are so grateful for our families and the time we get to have with them, although it is sometimes hard to remember when were all stuffed in a very small home!
My dad also made his famous fudge. I had to document it so next year when I try I have not only the recipe but pictures to follow
