We continue to have great missionaries arrive from the MTC and in August we received six elders and two sisters. We love them already!
When we visited Yaroslavl we had some time to do a little sightseeing of the city. Yaroslavl is about a four-hour train ride northeast of Moscow and is a beautiful city. We had a wonderful time with our missionaries, members, and seeing the city.
This is where the Volga and Kotorosl Rivers meet.

We attended the YSA Conference last weekend that was held just outside of Moscow. Young Single Adults from the Russia Moscow, Russia St. Petersburg, and Russia Samara Missions were invited to attend and there were around 182 who came, plus the leaders. This is the only picture I have of the conference so far, but I will post others in my next blog. This picture was taken at one of the dances that was held. We had a great time with our young single adults. They are the best!
Here it is September now and summer is over. It is actually cold here (last night the low was 40 degrees and the high today was 58) and some of the leaves on the birch trees are turning yellow. They are predicting an early winter in Moscow this year, darn. I'm looking forward to the beautiful autumn days so I hope winter will stay away for a while.
