What a wonderful trip to Mars Hill. Elders Deeley and Loynes and Sisters Jung and Frolich were so confident in their reading and bearing testimonies in greek. They also did some contacting on the way down, definitely some bold missionaries.

Jim was taught by Elders Harris and Lohman .Elder Harris baptised Jim and he was confirmed by President Charles. Elder Harris spoke about Baptism and Elder Lohman on the Gift of the Holy Ghost. There was such an outpouring of the Spirit tonight that many tears of joy and gratitude were shed. The Elders gave Jim a journal to record his feelings of this night. Will get a picture later of them dressed in their white clothing.
Elders Andersen, Middleton,Stephenson and Foerster are going home . We will miss them all ,and rejoice that they return with honour. I never fail to marvel at the miracle of a missionary. As I listened to the testimonies and hear from one missionary " My heart delights in the fruits of the Gospel" Others speaking about drawing closer to the Saviour, loving the people here in Greece. What a joy to sit and be enveloped in such goodness.
