Visit from the Barlows

We had a delightful vist from our fellow Bountiful 23rd Ward members and friends, Elder Steve & Sister Lana Barlow on August 9th. They met us at our church that morning. It happened that my wife and I were the main speakers in Sacrament Meeting that day. So the Barlows got to hear us speak in Dutch and heard the simultaneous translation. They are serving a mission with the Europe Area office in Frankfurt, Germany. They travel to over 30 countries and provide training and support for those that deal with church funds. It was great to spend a day with them driving around this part of the Netherlands. We visited the Hague, Zoetermeer Temple, the North Sea and the heart of Rotterdam. They stayed the night with us and then returned to Germany. It was interesting comparing notes on the different types of missions that we are serving. It was so good to see them. At the end of our mission we plan on visiting them, before we come home.
