  1. St. John, KS, was a vibrant center for the Church in that area of the country and served as a quasi-center for the Central States mission at the time. My mother was born and grew up a few miles from St. John, though somewhat later. She was not a member of the Church at the time and although she lived so close to that thriving pocket of Latter-day Saints and spent a considerable amount of time in St. John, she never heard of the Church until she was in college and met my father. Now there is no trace of the Church in St. John.

  2. Lovely photos. My own resident Beehive was interested to see all the pictures of the Beehives, including the camping trip and horse rides.
