We were on the Square Sunday afternoon when we noticed a elderly lady who was sitting by her self. We sat down with her and started a conversation. She was from Sacramento and was here to visit her sister who is on a Church History Mission. We had a nice conversation about how wonderful the mission has been for her sister and how her sister working on getting the temple work done for the family. She loves having the missionaries come to her house and visit the Camel Ranch that she takes care of. Then she said that she was not a member of the Church. We asked why she had not taken the missionary lessons? "Why no one has asked me." We had her fill out a card for the missionaries to come and give her the lessons. She was very happy and gave us both a big hug. She wrote on the Referral Card that elder and sister Glad invited me.
It is strange that some times it is hardest to ask our closest friends to learn about the church. We feel that the invitation may some how damage our relationship. When in reality we show love by sharing those things that mean the most to us.
The weather is to turn cold rainy with some snow this week, temperatures dropping some 35 degrees on Wednesday. Some of the Sisters have never been in a cold climate or have experienced snow. Should be very interesting.
Mom and Melody went to Woman's Conference Saturday night at temple square, all of the Missionary Sisters also attended so we senior elders had to take care of everything for the night. It was fun. The Square survived.
