Today we had new troops come out to servicemen's group who had just arrived this past week. We also had a soldier commit to baptism on Saturday. We are excited for him. This coming week we will have stake conference and in order for the troops to go we needed to get them a chaplain's letter; so we spent part of our evening taking the letter around to some of our troops who weren't in church. Three of our troops will be ordained to the Melchizedek priesthood on Sunday if it all works out and they can all get their interviews.
We had a nice visit this evening with a family of 2 and one in the oven. They are both on active duty, she is Air Force, he is Army. Both are linguists, both Arabic. He is actually in school and ROTC, but still does National Guard, but will go back on active duty after commissioning. It has been a good day!
