The city of Philadelphia had a serious graffiti problem. Their solution has been really innovative. They sent these kids that were defacing property to a school that taught how to paint murals. The results are spectacular. We took the Ashby's with us and went on a mural walking tour. There are dozens of murals throughout the city, but these are all close together and are representative of their work. These aren't the best pictures in the world, but you'll get the idea.

We stopped for the night at the Country Inn and Suites in Rolla, Missouri. They had this beautiful lobby that we had to take a couple of pictures!
And then, it was back on the road.
With an apartment on the ground floor it's just very nice.
More pictures to come.
These two were our trainers in the MTC. They really have a strong testimony, and taught us some of the basics of the work we will be doing.
Brother Harmer was mild-mannered, like Superman, but not scary. He took his job seriously and really tried to help us.
