Here in the Bitterroot valley, many people that feed you will say they
grew everything on the table themselves. And isn't that the truth! And
those are some of the best meals we get. Heck, I've probably had fresh
corn almost everyday last week! It's real good!
Also here in the Bitterroot valley last week, we had the Ravalli
county fair! You've got the rodeo and the rides, but all we got to do
was sit there at the family history booth and wait for people to come
to us. We weren't running it for sure, but the awesome family history
people were. There was a good amount of people that were interested in
family history, but not in the church. Oh well, that's a start.
We also had some good times at the ol' folks home, commonly known as
the living center. No one was really interested in bowling so it ended

missionaries come on and off for a long time. She does want to come to
church, so we're gonna make sure her dog gets taken care of so she can
come. Then there is Cheryl again. We have a lesson with her tomorrow
and I hope it goes well. I can tell she definitely has an open heart.
Final thought of the day. Our Ward mission leader shared a spiritual
thought yesterday that was pretty sweet. We had helped him last week
give the sacrament to his wife and another member. His wife was really
touched when she got it. She said it was really eye opening to see the
tray with only one cup in it for her. The gospel really is a personal
and individual thing, even though we do it with other people. Christ
died for you! He suffered for you! Remember that each time you take
