December 1960


Dec. 4

Met with a dear lady that we had given lesson 1 to in early Nov., Barbra Vinecare.  Made appointment for lesson 2, but her parents made such a fuss, she decided not to have us come anymore.  She is divorced and has two boys and one girl.  Boys are aged 11 and 9, girl 6.  When we met with her on Dec. 4th she wanted the rest of the lessons, so we decided to have her come to Mrs. Bryners home.  The next three days we gave her the next 3 lessons.  She had been reading and studying the literature and also had read the Book of Mormon.  It was a pleasure to work with this sweet person.  She was so eager to hear the gospel.  She said she wanted to be baptized but would wait till after Christmas because of the unpleasantness it would cause with her parents.
