We learned tonight that Sister Emberly is going home Tuesday. These missionaries just fly through here. She will be missed. It works out nicely that we fixed a really nice meal tonight. Dinner consisted of London Broil, salt potatoes, stuffed mushrooms (with blush sauce and a 3-cheese sauce on top of that), grilled zucchini and Swiss chard from our garden.
We took a few pictures outside. I need to post them in the parents’ Facebook group.
I noticed a huge visitor decline this Sunday. We still had lots of visitors, but not as many as we have the last 6 weeks. Comes Labor Day it will drop even more. Then, comes November 1st, it drops to only a couple each week.
Brother and Sister Hunt (he’s a high counselor) spoke in church. I really enjoy hearing them speak. She’s a convert of about 1 1/2 years, and his talks are always right-on.
He mentioned a new stake initiative that will be aimed at helping people find work and start businesses. The first of such meetings will be while I’m traveling on Route 66.
Challenge from Missionaries
Our challenge from the missionaries was to write down what we learned as we read the scriptures. This morning’s reading was from Lamentations. Elizabethe brought up a good point. It seems the Jews believed and had prophets up until Christ came. What happened? Why did they stop having prophets?
While this was more of an observation, it is a good question for one of my Jewish friends.
