Posted May 5, 2012:
This is the first mission message I am writing on my new iPad 2. After a glad Easter in Ankeny with our family (one month ago) Marilyn and I flew AA to Chicago and Paris. Bill & Ellie have arranged for a very comfortable apartment for us. It is about a 10 minute walk to the "office". :))
Bill and I take turns speaking at the three weekly gatherings (two on Sunday and one on Tuesday. We have helped with music, worked with students learning English, and made home visits. I have also helped Bill plan and build a covering for the guest room entry, made 4 apple pies for various occasions, gave assistance to a missionary friend with his computer and we have stamped and distributed tracts in the community.
Maisons-Laffitte has a long history of royalty and elegance. Take a look at this link:
Marilyn still has some lingering effects from vertigo (diagnosed one week before our trip). Next Wednesday we will move to another apartment.
We send greetings and love to all our neighbors, family and friends.
John and Marilyn
