Last week Elder Horlacher and myself went to E Moline, IL to visit the John Deere Factory. We got lost and so we missed our tour. We did a little shopping and meet a lady who was very interested in Family History. She ask if we could help her find a way that she and her husband could do theirs. We are so excited to help them. We went back today to take them information and to find the Family History Center close to them. Moline is about two hours away so we won't be able to be there to help but I think we have them set up with contacts. We also had the opportunity last night after our Rendezvous Show to talk with two couples about the Saints leaving Nauvoo, and why and how we would be willing to serve a mission and pay for it ourselves. As we have said we are growing in our understanding of why we are here, what the Saints must have felt, and listening to a living Prophet who has ask us to share the gospel with everyone so they may know and have a choice.
This Saturday is the anniversary of the Martyrdom of the Prophet Joseph Smith and his brother Hyrum. Elder Horlacher has been ask to be a part of the program. It is such an opportunity to be here and be a part of the Martyrdom Commemoration. We love Carthage and the wonderful feeling we feel there. We know that Joseph and Hyrum sealed their testimonies with there blood and that the church is true. We love you and ask Heavenly Father to bless and keep you all safe. We hope his choicest blessings are yours.
