After the graduation, Elder Gowans went up to the Estep's to see how things were going. While there we had lunch. Shortly afterward, a call came in from Brother Barton, he was ready to go apartment hunting. Elder Gowans met him at our apartment and from there we went to the local library and then hunting. After about an hour we found one that was in their price range and in the August ward, where we thought they would be most comfortable and be able to be a strength to the ward.
Afterward, Elder Gowans returned to the Estep's, picked up Sister Gowans, and we returned home for a short time and then headed over to the Cheney's so Sister Gowans could meet her. Then we drove up to Sister James' home to see how she was doing. We found that her mother was there with her and that everything was fine. From there we went to visit Sister Arnett. Our visits with her usually run about 2 hours. Yes, that is a long visit, but living alone she rarely has a friendly person to talk to and down load all her frustrations onto. So we had a nice visit with her and helped her get boxes out of her attic, so she could start preparing for her upcoming move. It has been a long, but very productive day!
