Now here is an interesting side note: We have been asked to talk in Church Sunday. The topic: Finding Joy through Loving Service! We will find the bright side of all this (by Sunday).
We had one of those HOT and MUGGY days today. They tell us it will get worse in July and August. You all may need to pray for us that we will make it through this. I think if Marcia made it through wearing a long, long-sleeved dress, then there must be hope for us.
We have started leading tours through the sites on Sundays. We had to read an entire book and then come up with our own presentation that lasts an hour and a half. We have really enjoyed leading groups around though. We have many opportunities to share our testimony as we go around. This past week we had a couple that is not a member of our Church in our group. They seemed very interested and it was a neat experience to share testimony about prophets and about some of the sacred experiences that happened here in Kirtland. Working an extra shift on Sunday kind of makes for a long week, but we really look forward to it. Kind of makes all the hard work in the heat worthwhile. Plus, we get to stop and point out that we are with the group the keeps the grounds looking so beautiful.
