Last night we had a friend over for dinner. He is an investigator to our church. The missionaries have only been teaching him a few weeks and he is ready to be baptized. He is a great guy. He has been through a lot in the last 4 months. His wife had an opportunity for a job in Baltimore....and she went to check it out. She never came back.... she left him with 3 girls. He didn't know what to do. They are back in contact now and trying to figure things out. But when the missionaries came to his door he knew they would change his life. It is very touching.
It really makes you appreciate what you have when you know that it literally could walk out the door.
He is a stronger and better man than I could ever be. He will be a wonderful member.

In light of the experience this weekend. I would like to post pics of what I am thankful for. My family.

Hey you, you obviously didn't read my blog about the pier. I did see 2 naked men walking past me. Not something I really enjoyed.
