New Sr. Sisters

Sisters Goodin and Dustin arrived yesterday. Today our center was closed for Mardi Gras so we were able to spend it getting them beds and taking them shopping and fixing lunch for them and the Young Elders (2 of them).

Last night they came to our Family Home Evening and we and the Earnharts both presented them with beads form the Selene Parade. We had a great visit with them then and today. We are all pretty tired tonight but looking forward to working with these two wonderful wommen.

Sister Goodin on the left is the mother of 11 children (3 adopted) and after she got them raised went to college and became a Jr. High math teacher in New Mexico.She is quiet but not shy. She is a widow.
Sister Dustin grew up in California but lives in American Fork. She has 4 children and her home is very close to the Mt. Timpanogas Temple. You see it out her back window. She is outgoing and exuberant.

Elder and Sister Earnhart are from Herriman Utah and have lived in many states including Idaho. He worked as a DI manager, school teacher and military. (backwards in order) He speaks a lot of languages ( I think 8 but he won't say, maybe more.)Amazing people too. Lots of fun, very friendly. They are in charge of the Bishop's Storehouse and the cannery.
