We have had a wonderful and event filled day. After Sacrament meeting at the Augusta Ward, we headed home for lunch and then up to Post to meet with the Richards family and teach them their second Temple Prep class. We invited sister Lonsberry to join us; she was recently endowed herself, so we thought it would be nice to invite her in to share her own thoughts and feelings about her experiences. It worked out real nice. Afterward, Elder Gowans dashed about to pick up a few soldiers at various companies so they could also attend church. We do whatever we can to ensure that those who want to come out can!
After our Branch meetings completed, we began a Missionary Prep class for three of our soldiers who desire to serve mission and who are preparing to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood. It is so gratifying to see these wonderful young men, who are so motivated, grow and progress. We invited the full-time missionaries to assist us with their insights; that added a lot to our class.
From there we drove up to the Jones' home; we were invited for dinner with them, what we didn't know was that they also invited the Murray family who live a couple of doors down. We love both these families and had a wonderful time with them. Elder Gowans gave the FHE lesson, which seemed to go over real well.
From there we drove into Evans for a little pow wow with Brother Person in the Stevens Creek ward. We needed to update our military roster of their ward, and he is in a real good position to help us with that. We got that done and then home we came. It has been a rewarding and gratifying day.
