This afternoon we attended the graduation of one of our soldiers who we have really grown to love, Brother Downs. He will leave tomorrow for Airborne school at Fort Benning, GA. He will be there for 3 weeks and then home and from there he hopes to get right in to college at BYU-I. As with all our troops, we will miss him, but are happy that they have completed their training and will be able to get on with their lives.
This evening we had a nice visit with Brother Baum; he has changed a lot over the past couple of months. He seems to be more excited about having the gospel back as apart of his life. He prayed at the conclusion of our visit. He will be separating from the Army around Halloween time, so until them we will have the opportunity to enjoy him. We also was able to meet another young man that we just learned was living on Post. His name is Seth Kunz and comes here from Idaho. We called the number we had for him, but instead of getting him we got his dad. His dad gave us his number, we called, but received no answer, so we simply found his room, knocked and found him at home. We had a short, but nice visit with him and seemed really pleased that we had stopped by to see him. After we visited with him we went to find a new family in the area, but found the home, but no one was home. We then stopped by to say hi to one of our lonely sisters, Sister Scroggins, she is always busy when we stop by to see her, so we had a quick chat on the step and then left.
