Oh my Scot….we are cousins! It's that whole 6 degrees of separation thing, that in the church is like two! The story you related about your grandfather and swimming in the Gulf of Mexico really touched me. Imagine my surprise and delight when you mentioned your grandmother’s name…Martha Holbrook. I am a direct descendant of Joseph Holbrook from his first wife Nancy and their first child Sara Lucretia….and, if I am following the genealogy correctly, your grandmother was josephs granddaughter from his third wife Caroline Frances Angell. I have been pouring over Joseph’s journal and aligning it with what we are reading in D&C so he has been ever present in my mind of late. I have been a listener of your podcasts since the New Testament series and I very much enjoy yours and Maureens insights and thoughts and stories. I wish I could join one of your tours….I think it would be a tremendous experience. Thank you for all that you do and share! Sincerely Marie Anderson williamsburg va
I was so interested reading about your Grandfather Facer in Texas. My father-in-law served in the Central States Mission from 1912-1914 or 15. He was also in the Houston area and especially Galveston. His name was David Cleveland Okelberry. I wonder if they knew each other.
Some say that God rules the earth, and Satan rules the waters. This is ludicrous. God rules the world, the whole world, even the very dust of the earth and all the oceans and seas. Every drop of water is under his authority.
