Cowpens, SC

I've wondered about the name Cowpens since we came to South Carolina.  Today we got to go there. What a beautiful part of the state!  On the way up, I Googled Cowpens and read aloud the story of the Battle of Cowpens.  It always amazes me the guidance and inspiration given to the Revolutionary troops and their leaders! I KNOW that they were upheld and guided by the hand of the Lord in their endeavor to break from the Crown of England!  And this because they were to be the cradle of the Restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ.

We stopped in Greenville on the way, to pick up a washer and dryer for the new Sisters' apartment.  Elder Holley and Elder Plumb had them hauled down the stairs and out waiting for us at the curb.  They were there to load them into the trailer for us also.

Next we went to the duplex which was vacated today by Sisters Montoya and Wheelock.  A senior couple, the Winwards will arrive at the end of the week, and this will be their new home.  NICE apartment!!!  Elder Skeen and Elder Winn were there to help load and unload furniture and household goods.

(Bless their hearts!  They definitely went a few steps down when their left this apartment and moved into a trailer down the road.  Not one word of complaint from the either!)
