We just crossed into NJ. Will be meeting our CES leader for lunch then the mission president. Trip has been good. We're about 60 miles from NY. Saw signs for DC, Gettysburg, Baltimore, etc.
Love you all,

The Trip Eastward
We left Highland on October 13th and arrived in Morristown on October 18th.
As we traveled, we thought often of “America the Beautiful”. To paraphrase that popular hymn: we left the purple mountain majesties, traveled through amber waves of grain and arrived at the fruited plain – all under spacious skies. We truly live in a fabulous nation. We followed the thoroughfare for freedom beat across the wilderness in reverse. How marvelous it would be if all of our successes were noble and every gain divine. How great it would be if we all felt and practiced brotherhood from sea to shining sea.
We were impressed with the abundance of our nation, which is represented in so many forms. It filled us with gratitude and caused us to wonder how we can work to help a few of God’s children enjoy lives in which they are able to fulfill, at least some of their fondest dreams.
