This was the scene, looking north on our lane, Hopes Way, while out walking last Thursday morning. Lots of mist, rain and fog. But, we were still welcomed at the Dutton home in Goodview and had a very nice visit with them, reading with them from the Book of Mormon. They are a very special couple.
Today, Tuesday, April 7, we had to go in to Dr. McBride's office in Roanoke to take the results of some radiology done here at the Bedford hospital. While waiting, were greeted by a woman named Dutton that works in the doctor's office. It turns out that she is married to Merle Dutton's cousin, an active member of the Church. During the conversation we learned that the Elder Stevens that was an Assistant to President Montague in the Colorado Denver North Mission when we first arrived there in May 2006, is a nephew of these two Brother Dutton's of Virginia. They all originally come from Vermont! So, we see the many connections the church and the gospel bring into our lives! She was so happy to know we were welcome in the Dutton home in Goodview.
