And he always tells us " I am not a Mormon I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints. " And just glad to be there every step of the way with them. Abd we talked about temples a little bit and showed them the digital tour given of the Rome Italy temple and it was a really good video. Then we drove back into Cranbrook because we had another appointment there and we got to the house and had a good appointment with them and they are glad to be meeting with us and just ready to hear the message of the gospel.

Then we made our way to the church and had our district meeting and it was good and it was very black and white between the 2 meetings and it is what it is but glad to have that here.
