This morning, we were really put to work at the Library! It was a real good productive 4 hours. Sister Gowans went completely through the children's section organizing all the children's books and Elder Gowans went through all the music CDs finding missing cases and matching them up with their CDs. This afternoon, we attended Brother Slade's graduation. He has been a very active member of the branch for the past several months, hardly missing any church meetings. Due to his schedule, he wasn't able to come to our Monday and Friday activities, but he was always at church. As with the others, we will miss him.
This evening Elder Gowans and Elder Meacham gave Sister Gowans a blessing prior to tomorrow's surgery. We have confidence that all will be well. After the blessing Elder Gowans went up to the church to visit with the new Ward Executive Secretary and discuss with him a few families that need to get in to see our new Bishop. We hope that with this new change, that these good families will be able to, with the Bishop's assistance, mark a path to the temple.
Afterwards, Elder Gowans left to drive out to Harlem to visit with the New Grovetown Bishopric. He was unable to visit with the Bishop as planned, he was behind on his interviews, but he did meet with his two counselors. They discussed the military members of the ward and made sure that they were all up to date on their records.
