We spent most of the day preparing for Friday's institute class. We didn't have anything else going on the entire day. We also spent an hour trying to drum up some more appointments since Saturday and Sunday afternoon we were busy with conference, which is our usual appointment making time. We were able to get a couple of more for the week, which just about filled our schedule.
This evening we met with a great family. He is in the National Guard and will deploy after the first of the year. This is his first deployment, but it will not be their first separation. They were very appreciative of the predeployment briefing that we gave them; it gave them some things to ponder on and do to make sure they are well prepared.
