This is our friend that owns Italian Pie, a restaurant where President and I eat often. He is our friend. Sam and Brig our sons were in town on Labor Day and were with us the first time He went to church with us. He loved church. He is reading the Book of Mormon in Mandarin and loving it. We are praying for a miracle so his wife and son can join him here in the United States from China. This husband and wife have been members only a short time. They had had a wonderful experience at the Temple with the missionaries this day doing baptisms for the dead.They got a pizza and brought it to the mission home where we ate together and played with their darling little boys. It was a special day and you could feel the love that elder Butikofer and elder Jensen had for this family.
This was a wonderful baptism for sister Riddle and Sister Wingate. Our grand daughter Danielle went and taught with the sisters and then was able to attend the baptism. This brother had a deep and sincere testimony.
This is Elder Decker and Belknap teaching our spanish speaking saints at a fireside we had at the mission home. Elder Decker was pretty new and did a great job.
