We didn't have much success talking with members but we found Jesse Edwards and Carlene Sims who had been taught in the past by the Wards. We had our lesson on the Word of Wisdom with Kimberley Evans with Sister Quinn there. She committed very strongly to the Word of Wisdom. We are working on some times so she will be able to talk with you. We finished of the night with Nick Barbella who had just moved in. He is very prepared and opened to learning and as we asked questions back and forth the spirit directed us to read scriptures that really brought him allot of peace.
