We just had our Sunday session of Stake Conference, and it was wonderful. Understand almost perfectly everything that was said, so that was a really nice part as well! But the messages were very well thought out, and also centered on temple, marriage, and family. And the music was beautiful, there was a stake choir with an incredible director that made some beautiful arrangements, and 2 violinists to accompany with the piano. So cool!
|The important area peoples, mission presidents, CCM presidents, etc. etc. of Central America! Pretty sweet!|
I was thinking to myself just how blessed we are, and especially in my mission right now... this morning we were able to catch a ride with a family to the Benque (stake center building), Pres and Hna Dester attended this session so we got to talk to them for a little bit, I met and shook hands with President Ocampo, the Tegucigalpa Temple president, we got another ride back to our area, met and taught one of the guards that we always pass by and he is such a good person and very receptive, and we got fed lunch by a sister who felt the impression to look out her window when we were crossing the street in front of her house and she invited us in to eat. And it's barely afternoon! It is amazing how the Lord can and does provide us with the things that we need, and the means to help others. I know that our Heavenly Father is mindful of His children, and like President Uchtdorf explained in his talk in a past General Conference, is constantly raining down blessings upon us, and as we are going about doing the work of the Lord, we can receive them with gladness. The Gospel is so cool!
