Another Mission Adventure in Missouri
On Friday, May 1st, Elder Crow and I went to visit missionary apartments in the some the furthest areas of our mission. One interesting place that we went was Chillicothe, MO. It is a very small community. There is one set of Elders there and 2 Senior Sisters. We had driven through there before, so we knew that there were many buildings that had LARGE murals painted on the sides of them.
|This is for real!|
We also went to Hamilton, MO. which is where the famous Missouri Star Quilt Company is. It is world famous, I had actually heard about it even before our mission.
|Original Floor Plan|
It got below freezing in the winter, and hot in the summer. The cells sat on a rotating floor. One time each day the jailer would rotate the cells with some type of gear and each cell would face the front where their food was placed in a slot for them.
They were fed once a day, and their cell moved around once a day.
|Lovely, comfy bed|
They never got out of their
|Only source of heat|
Next we went to Far West. They have a beautiful monument there, of the Temple site.

The Senior elders like to go there to fish. there are 2 ponds there. I haven't mentioned the ponds. They are everywhere, we even some one across from our apartments. They are beautiful.
Missouri is such a pretty area, now that it is green. Beautiful green rolling hills, with lots of ponds, and trees. We are really enjoying our mission.
