Visit to Sebring Ward

This is the weekend for the change to Daylight Savings Time, and we lost an hour of sleep.  So with unfortunately planning, we arranged to visit the Sebring Ward which is the furthest unit in the stake from us.  Fortunately, they do not have Ward Council on the 2nd Sunday of the month, so we didn't need to be there an hour early for that.

Sebring is almost in the middle of the state between the two coasts.  It takes us 90 minutes to drive there, most of that is on a road lane road.  Fortunately it is neither windy or narrow.  We drove past many orange groves as it is in the agricultural part of the state.

The ward appears to be a strong unit.  There was a good sized congregation.  Two investigators attended the gospel principles class, one of whom will be baptized this coming Saturday.  He married a member of the Church three weeks ago.  They met through an internet site.  She was living in Salt Lake City and he in the Sebring area.  After about three weeks of intense telephone conversations, he flew to SLC to meet her in person.  After a couple of days, they decided to get married.  After returning here following the wedding, he has been taking the missionary lessons.  He seems to have a strong testimony and is looking forward to his baptism.
