President's Sisters & Mom Visit the Mission

Every year the Beck Sisters plan an outing to get away and spend some quality time with each other. I have been obviously been absent from the scene for the past two years. They all thought it would be a good idea to come to Phoenix before we went home and enjoy a little warmth from the sun, which has been missing from Salt Lake for a long....time. Our time was short together but wonderful memories were made.

We took our P-day and drove up to Sedona to see the beautiful red rocks and spent some time shopping. Something that President hasn't really given me the opportunity to do when we have gone there. Actually he hates to shop. We enjoyed an ice cream cone,eating at a Mexican restaurant and each others company.

The highlight of the trip was a trip to see the incredible Mesa Pageant.

President Beck led his sisters and mom up Sunrise Mountain for the usual hike.

One night we spent reading from Valene's journal of memories growing up together.
We were sad Paul's brother Reed was not there to share the experience with us as that would have completed the siblings. We laughed and we cried together as we relived the events of their past. It was a wonderful four days together as they caught a brief glimpse of what our mission life was like. We had Zone Conferences
that week so they were able to come and participate in one of the days.
