First Area: Martinsburg, West Virginia

Downtown Martinsburg, West Virginia
Naomi has been assigned to the Martinsburg Ward in West Virginia. 

Martinsburg is in the Eastern Panhandle region of West Virginia It is the "Gateway to the Shenandoah Valley"  (according to the city’s website). Population is approximately 18,000.

She said her area got 3 feet of snow last week.

Her companion and trainer is Sister Bartschi from Idaho. A kind woman in the Martinsburg Ward sent me this picture. It was taken just in front of their townhome.

Sister Bartschi and Sister Rapier
She ran out of time to write much this week - probably because she was catching up with last week’s emails. But she did say, “No squirrel stew, yet” (it’s a running joke between us) and, “I get to go to the temple this week!”

Favorite advice she received from this week’s emails: Socks before shoes, laces are sometimes necessary to keep your shoes on your feet. Miles, Naomi said you made her morning :)

Sister Rapier's new address is: 1213 Grebe Ct, Martinsburg, WV 25404
