April 4, 2011

We had dinner at the home of the new branch president last night. He’s good. The branch presidency is working hard to see every single less active family and figure out how to get them back. That’s very good. Our branch mission leader was in Salt Lake City for General Conference so we will have our first meeting next week.

We actually had a few branch members get to go to Salt Lake to attend conference live at Temple Square, which is cool. We watched at church. I loved the talk about the “to do” list and the “to be” list. That was a sick talk. Probably my favorite.

This week we taught Irma and a whole bunch of her family. We showed up and there was an extra car outside so we just told ourselves we would set up an appointment since they had company, but they invited us right in and asked us what we were going to talk about, so we got to teach 5 (turned into 7 by the end) adults at the same time. That was pretty fun. One of the guys said that he was Catholic, they had some family that were Jehovah’s Witnesses, and we were Mormon, so which one is right? So we taught them about the restoration. Life’s a little better when people actually have the questions you are going to answer.

Mom asked, “Well, you have 2 out of the 4 General Conferences down -- just 2 to go... how does that feel?” Hahaha, ya I was thinkin’ about that. The last mark before I hit a year is next month's Mothers Day call. Weird. Things move pretty fast.
