We are part of the largest group of senior missionaries that any of the current leadership has ever experienced. There are about 150 of us. It is a nice group and we really enjoyed the three other couples in our district. The Browns from Southern CA are going to Nigeria, the Garretts, from Tennessee, are going to Edmonton, Canada; and the Bytheways from Southern UT are going to Toronto Canada. We really enjoyed working and learning with them. We had two wonderful recently returned missionaries as our teachers that we all really loved, Brother Hong from Idaho, and Brother Keepman from Michigan. It is amazing how spiritual, role playing can be when we are teaching the Gospel. During our discussions and learning there were many tender tears shed.
We plan to stay here tomorrow and watch General Conference with the other missionaries. During Priesthood meeting tomorrow evening they are going to replay the Women's Broadcast for the Sister Missionaries, which I am very glad about since I missed that because of our flight down here last week. Sunday we will go to Karen's in Draper to watch Conference with them and celebrate Bob's 85th birthday! (People here are stunned to hear that he is that age. He is lots younger than many of the people here whose ages are a much smaller number.)
