Visit with Matt Mogle

It has been 12 years since we saw our favorite missionary ever, Matt Mogle. It was almost as if the time hadn't passed. We slipped easily back into that friendship. The girls warmed up to him quickly. He had such patience with them! I guess he has a lot of practice with 3 girls of his own.

Saturday night, we had a get together with a few friends. The kids played in the backyard, and the adults talked and had a great time. Jamie spent most of Friday smoking pork roasts, and we all enjoyed eating them Sat. night! After that, we had another late night chatting with Mogle.

After church on Sunday, Jackie, Jennifer, Mikal, and Abby came over for lunch. We had a great time visiting. When it was time for Matt to leave there were a few tears shed.


  1. Stangers, this will be a weekend I will remember for the rest of my life and speak about often. I can only wish that I was able to have visited sooner, but better late than never, right? The goal now is to come out with my family and visit.

    I love you guys! You're such a great example to me and I'm overwhelmed with joy when I see how the gospel has touched your lives and how you've done the work to touch other peoples lives with it. It was awesome to meet your mom, Dana. She's a great woman.

    Now that we're digitally connected, it will be fun to watch the girls grow up. You can connect to our blog at "".

  2. Dana, I just found your blog. I'm now a follower! I love all the pictures. Crimson looks so grown up!
