Brother French,Loved your story. I served in the California North Mission and was in Chico for about 5 months. I know Orland very well and there was an Olsen there as Branch President at the time.
I was also in Placerville when Floyd Weston moved there. I had several opportunities to get to know him better.
I am writing a book about Floyd Weston (with the family's permission and wondered if you would mind emailing me so that we can have a conversation. Thanks! Gail Johnsen
Thank you Brother French for writing the inspiring details of this amazingly true member-mssionary story in Orland, CA. I remember it well! It was a life-changing experience for me as a teenager. I feel so grateful for good men like you, Fred Olson, Floyd Weston, my father Reed Whitaker, and all the other good male role-models that blessed my life in our little Orland Branch. It helped make me a member-missionary for life! God bless you and your wife Margaret!
I am Floyd's oldest child and I remember many miraculous stories about Dad's missionary efforts. Thanks for sharing this one.
Wendy, I am glad you saw this. I wish I could Email you a copy. I made some slight adjustments after publication that you would be interested in.
My dad, what a story. Thank you for sharing. I miss him so much and can't believe he has been gone for 10 years now. Can't wait be reunited with him.
