This evening, we had the opportunity to meet the Mapels family. Brother Mapels is a convert to the church of about 9 months. He and his wife have lived in the area for over 2 years. We had a nice visit with them and learned a little of their backgrounds. She is the military brat, he came along in the family when his dad was much older, so he is without parents now in life. They have a little boy, we didn't meet him, he was in bed a sleep. He has been in the military for 18 years and will likely stay in for another 10. We enjoy meeting these wonderful families.
Tomorrow will be our first Institute class since the Holiday Block Leave, we are looking forward to it.
