Sabbath Day

Not exactly about keeping the Sabbath Day holy, but close enough, and who doesn't like Norman Rockwell?

Hey, y'all!

Another week in Columbus has past.  We're working hard, cleaning up the rosters and striving to find those who are seeking the truth.  A really cool experience happened yesterday evening: we were out street contacting, making our way through the downtown area of Columbus, and with the exception of a couple of cars, the parking lots outside of the shops and stores were deserted. It gave me hope that there are still people out there who care about the sanctity of the Sabbath.

We're looking forward to a good week and wish y'all the same.

A Two-fer

Some family events made it difficult to post last week, so herewith not one, but two messages from Elder McMurray!

Hey, y'all.

It's been an eventful week; transfers happened and Elder Garrett is now in Kansas.  It was a quick two transfers.  My new companion is Elder Lindgren; he's been out for a few months and came down from Yankton, South Dakota.  He's originally from Richfield, Utah and here's his hello picture:

We had a great weekend with some wonderful visits with all varieties of the people of Columbus.  We're looking forward to a wonderful week and transfer.  We wish y'all the same, and stay cool.

Hey y'all!

Well, our first full week as a companionship has come and gone.  We had some great spiritual experiences this week and our key investigators are making rapid progress.  However, just as the price of freedom is eternal vigilance, so it is with helping people progress in the Gospel.  I'm grateful for the experiences that I've had thus far with the people I've met here in Columbus and I'm looking forward to laboring with them a little longer.

I hope that y'all have a great week.
