This week has been great. Lots of news today.
Monday we had dinner with the McMillan's. They live in Larned. After dinner we went to the Larned State Hospital. One of the members in the Hays Ward got a hold of us and asked us to give a blessing to a resident there. This state hospital has many parts to it. There is a prison and a mental ward and other groups there. We had to go through an hour class in 30 min to be able to walk in to the buildings. This was fun, even the state clergy personal asked us to come back and teach the members there. A wonderful day and we got home late.
