Today we went to Brigham's home. I had a very interesting happening. This couple came for a tour. They were about 40 years old from New Jersey. They seemed to be of Hispanic descent. They started off with an interesting story that I did not really pay attention to. They flew in yesterday to Las Vegas to go to a show. So this morning they got up and wanted to go to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. As they hit the freeway they were about a hundred miles from Vegas when they found that they were headed north and not south, they were 30 miles from St, George, so they thought whoops we blew it so just let us go on and see what is in St George. They stopped at the tourist information center and thought they would come to Brigham's house. They had only heard a little over the ages about Brigham Young. There we met we went on a tour and when we were done I asked them if they knew anything about Mormons and why we are called Mormons. We had a good teaching moment. I asked them if they would like a Book of Mormon. She wanted one I gave them Joseph Smiths testimony and directions on how to find their family tree. As we parted she said maybe this is why we got lost. She said things happen for a reason. Yes it hit me they were guided to our site and I was only a tool to introduce this couple to the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. Darolyne had good day too she met with non members from Colorado and was able to place a Book with them. I witnessed this lady give Darolyne a great big hug as she was leaving. Darolyne is an excellent teacher and the people really like her tours. She is always true to the history. I love her dearly.

It has been awhile since I wrote on the blog. This week the sites have not been very busy. But Darolyne has given 5 Book of Mormons and I have given 3. We got up each morning and decorated the sites. It has rained quite hard for the last 2 days, even an inch or rain. A lot for St.George. We went out to lunch today with the McCoys, they took us over to Sunbrook and we went through a million dollar home. I took a picture of the inside of the Tabernacle all decorated. Also a p

Today was Tuesday and on Tuesdays we always have a 7 or 8 in the morning meeting with the Senior Missionaries. After we went out to breakfast with the Collins we went to the Black Bear. We served at the Tabernacle and the first people in was a couple from Arizona. They weren't LDS. Darolyne has not thad a non member for over a week. This p;aid off she was able to spend a lot of time with them and was able to teach them and they really wanted to get a Book of Mormon. I met with a couple of members from Okatoks, Alberta. I spent about an hour with them. This is the first time they have been in St, George so we talked a lot. KC has been really sick about why he is sick or has pains all over his body. So he has anxieties and is worried about his health so it worries us. I love this work and want to serve all my life if I could doing this. The spiritual rewards are tremendous.

I met with a family today from Argentina The son and daughter live here in St. George and the father and mother live in Argentina, they came to the Brigham Young home. The parents were not members of our Church. During the tour the father was touched about our church, he wanted a Book of Mormon in Spanish and so did his wife. He will have missionaries teach him in Argentina. He told me he felt something very special and thanked me. The son after our tour caught me by myself and said to me , can I bare you my testimony, and he did, now he has been a member for 8 years and was baptized in Orem. In his testimony he told me the missionaries came to his home in Orem for the first visit they started by asking if they could open with a prayer. He said he had never prayed before and while they were praying he felt something different that he had never felt before. He then said he opened his eyes and the Savior was kneeling next to him. He wondered if he saw what he thought so he closed his eyes and opened them again and again saw the Savior. Then at the end of the prayer he looked and he was not there. He testified to me that this was true. He said he could not keep the tears of joy falling for days. He then joined the church. He brought his family there today hoping that they could feel that spirit;
