Not Tornado Alley, but Tornado Alley Adjacent

Me, this morning

Hey, everyone!

Despite the crazy weather that has occurred around Columbus, we've been spared the brunt of it.  Still, when you're going from an 80-degree day like yesterday to a 50-degree day like today, it raises more than a few eyebrows and shivers more than a few nerves.

This past week was very good; we had an especially great Sunday combing through the records of the branch and seeking out those who are in need.  We had a great visit with a woman yesterday who, although a staunch Catholic, had family members who are members of the Church who moved out of the branch a while ago.  She hasn't had visitors in a while and was on friendly terms with the missionaries in the past.  We had a wonderful visit on her porch and we're looking forward to seeing her again.  Even if she has no interest in converting to the Church, we're still Christians, we find common ground, and we extend our friendship as Christ does and would do.  

We were still able to share a message from the Book of Mormon that enlightened her mind and ours and warmed our hearts.  

We're looking forward to a good week and we wish you the same.  Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers; we extend ours in return.

Elder McMurray
