We had a wonderful Ward Conference today. Our "teme" came from Ether 12:4. " Wherefore, whoso believeth in God might with surety hope for a better world, yea, even a place at the right hand of God, which hope cometh of faith, maketh an anchor to the souls of men, which would make them sure and steadfast, always abounding in good works, being led to glorify God." All our meeting were taught by the stake leaders. It was outstanding. For some reason though we had very low attendance at meetings today. It seemed like the stake members out numbered the ward members. That made me sad. I invited "Uncle Andy" and he didn't come either. Have I mentioned that our Stake President, President Gonsalves reminds me of Jeffrey. Same age, same coloring, same build. It make me homesick for my kids!!!
Later in the day the doorbell rang. There on the step stood Bro. and Sis. Young. Bro. Young is in our bishopric. They brought some dishes and asked us if we could use them in the missionary pad. His aunt gets new things all the time and she wanted to give these to someone who could use them. We said we could always use things for the missionaries. We invited them in and had the most wonderful visit. We laughed and talked story. When it was time for them to go we looked at the clock and they had been here for two hours!! After 6 months it finally feels like we are beginning to be at home here in this ward. We must be building trust.
