His Farewell & Tempering of the Elements
Elder Clayton's Farewell was held on Sunday, May 19th at 1:00 p.m. The weather has been so rainy and cold up until this day and we have been watching every day with the hopes that it might be ok to hold his farewell gathering outside. Seems we have quite a crowd after the meeting, which we love and welcome, but a couple of times our house just doesn't seem to be big enough. And so prayer were said. We asked for just a small window of good weather to be able to hold it outside perhaps 2:00-5:00 p.m. might be ok. Well, we put the stuff outside and the weather was chilly, but not bad. We headed to church with a few gray clouds, but nothing threatening. Stetson spoke and did an amazing job and after the weather was beautiful. We went home, fed the crowd, outside. And at about 4:00 the clouds started to roll in, and then a down pour came. Prayers were truly heard and answered. Sue said it best when she said, that Heavenly Father must really love us to give us the perfect weather for Stetson. I couldn't agree more. Thank you prayers were said as we knew that it was indeed a tender mercy of many more to come through this experience of his service as a missionary.
