Beautiful sunset seen from our apartment windows.
Our building is identical. We live on the 1st floor.
Tuesday, January 28th - our 42nd wedding anniversary! What better way to celebrate than to attend the temple with friends who were going through for the first time. It was the most beautiful day filled with the Holy Spirit. Our friends have been married for about seven years and she has only been a member of the church a little over a year. After years of abusing drugs and alcohol, they met at an AA meeting, became friends and later married. After listening to the stories of their lives and everything they have been through, I remain a firm believer that anyone can change. With enough help, love, encouragement and the Atonement of Christ, it is possible to start a new life. You can imagine the happiness and sweet emotions we felt seeing them kneeling at the alter of the temple to be sealed for time and all eternity.
Elder Lewis has been doing some research into the history of the Brooklyn Park Branch. He has been interviewing past presidents, clerks and members and has found much interesting information. Hopefully he will finish by the end of our mission.
The work is progressing and we are happy and - except for colds and my bad shoulder - healthy. We continue to enjoy our mission here and feel very blessed.
