We started this morning going to Church in the San Diego 8th Ward. We met with the Bishop after Sacrament meeting. He told us that his second counselor, Louis, was in the military and could tell us all about the military members of the Ward. The Bishop took us to meet Louis, and we spent about a half hour talking with him. We left to go to our car, and the Bishop caught up with us in the parking lot. He told us that Louis’ wife, Kacey, was pregnant and having some problems. They have three little kids. The Bishop asked up to go see her. Louis didn’t tell us about her problems, which did not surprise the Bishop. Apparently Louis is a pretty private person. But since he will be gone for about 10 days on a military assignment, we will stop and see Kacey tomorrow.
We went to the Naval Fleet Center for the LDS meeting. We had a young man show up about 12:50. He is from Virginia and is in San Diego for water rescue training. This is his last Sunday here. His wife flew to Las Vegas last week for the holiday weekend, and he rented a car and drove up to meet her. He saw the marquee at the chapel advertising our meeting. We did not have enough time to drive to the Harbor Ward so we had a short Sacrament meeting. Elder Fanning blessed and passed the Sacrament, and Sister Fanning gave a talk on tender mercies.
We decided to leave after that for the Harbor Ward so he could go to Sunday School and Priesthood meeting. When we arrived, we were asked to take the BUD/S trainees back to the base right away. We left for the Coronado Naval Amphibious Base. It took about an hour to get there and back. When we got back to the Harbor Ward, we gave Chris and Susan’s information to the Ward Clerk to update their records. We also had an updated list of military to give to the Bishop. After the block was over, we drove the young man in water rescue training back to the Naval Fleet Center.
We got home about 5:00. We had leftover lasagna for dinner.
We had an appointment with Jeff and Tabitha at 7:00. He just broke his leg during PT. She is eight months pregnant, but thinks she will deliver early. They live on the third floor of an apartment complex. The climb up the stairs is taxing. Luckily, his mother was able to come and help out immediately. Jeff and Tabitha are not very active, but he had a blessing from the Elders Quorum. He is scheduled for surgery this week. They asked us to help by taking a couple of bags of baby things that had been given to them. They were extras that they did not need, and we were happy to give them to another of the Military Relations couples to take to the Navy Thrift Shop where they volunteer.
We got home about 8:30. We got to bed on time after relaxing for a while.
