Sunday we had a great church meeting. We had lots of people show up. After the sacrament we had to set up more chairs. This is cool to the see the ward grow. Brittney and Jarred were able to come and stay for two hours. Then we went over to their house for lunch. Then we saw the Deman Family and the Loveless Family. Then we had dinner with the Clarks.
This had been a great week and we saw lots of progression in many people this week. Jarred and Brittney are still working to baptism. Jarred had cleared up all the legal things that were holding him back now they are planning on getting married. Thanks for every thing.
