Update on Elder Purcell

This is the chart that I keep, tracking the time Randy has left. This was taken on his 13 month mark! He has been serving in Regina as a Zone Leader since the first part of February. He is now sserving with his 3rd companion since then. He has actually only served in two cities his entire mission. He started out in Regina, serving in two differenent areas there. He really likes being there because the that is where the temple is and he loves going to the temple. After his second area in Regina, he was transferred to Winnipeg, where he served in two different areas. Since he has been back in Regina, he has been serving in the Young Single Adult Ward. Serving in the YSA makes it a little difficult to find single people between the ages of 18 - 30 to teach. It is such a blessing to us here at home to have a missionary serving. One of the blessings is to see the growth of their testimonies, and to hear how they are growing. We miss him terribly, but we are so grateful that he is worthy and willing to serve. As you can see from the chart, we are counting the days until he comes home, but we are thankful that he's where he is and having experiences that will help him through the rest of his life.

Randy says he has learned so many skills that will help him throughout his life. I hope writing on the fridge is one skill he forgets! He says this is how they stay organized!
