Kirtland was wonderful! Our favorite was the Issac Morley farm. I learned so much about Issac Morley I didn't know before. I'd love to find a biography of him to read. What an incredible man! (and his wife couldn"t have been one whit behind him) Walking his farm was walking on holy ground!
Our excitement last week was that we placed a Book of Mormon! Judge Williams and his assistant, Rae, brought us up some cinnamon rolls and while they were talking to us Judge Williams mentioned that there was coffee downstairs we could help ourselves to. When we politely told him we don't drink coffee it perked Rae's interest. She went home and talked to her brother in Virginia about it and came back the next day and asked us for a Book of Mormon and said she would like to read it. We aren't allowed to proselyte at the courthouse so we will just have to wait and see if anything comes of it.
More excitement is we are getting a new bed tomorrow! The mattress we have had has been, to put it nicely, a pain in the back! At church last Sunday the couple from the mission office came to Spencer (they are going to be joining us until the first snow flies). I don't remember how the subject of the bed came up but she told me we don't have to sleep on a bad mattress and she would start proceedings first thing Monday to get us a new mattress. How lucky was that? That must be more of your prayers for us answered, too! Tender mercies are raining down on us like crazy! Thank you!
We love and miss you so much! We hope you are doing well! We hope our prayers for you are being answered, too!
