A Full Day!

We had Ward Council this morning at 7:30 a.m. and then Missionary Committee meeting at 8:30. Sacrament meeting was wonderful. Brother Ortiz from the Stake High Council and Sister Sarme from the Primary spoke. For high council meetings here they always have a sister from one of the stake auxiliaries speak along with the brethren. It is wonderful to hear from them. They always bring their families and it is nice to meet them. Wall taught Gospel Doctrine. The lesson was "We are Witnesses." Great lesson. I am prejudice though. As we were walking out of the building the bishop caught up with us and asked us to be on call seminary teachers this year. Of course, we said yes. Right after church we went to Kalaheo for the baptism of Dougie Pacheco. The sisters found him while out tracting and he was golden. He only had the lessons for about 3 weeks and he was ready for their messages from the beginning! After the baptism we had lunch for everyone in the Cultural Hall. That is our favorite thing. We wish we could bring that tradition back home with us. Lunch right after church. Munch and mingle. What a great idea. Back home to freshen up and then off to Lihue. Elder Rasband of the 7 Presidents of 70 was here on vacation with his family and of course, he was asked to give a fireside. It was outstanding. He, his wife and youngest son bore their testimonies of families and the importance of the home and being together forever. What a great ending to an busy day. President and Sister Dalton flew over here just for the fireside. I guess they and the Rasband's have been friends for years. We always love to see them.
