|Speaking of funny, they are goofing around with the birthday guy.|
The WORD IS OUT, the Elders know we will drive them to the Temple. We drove some on Tuesday for the 5:30 session. I have never been in such a full session where I knew most of the people. I felt like that is what Heaven will be like--my heart sang "rejoice, rejoice", it was so special.
We drove the elders today and we have been asked to take more elders to the Temple this next Tuesday. I said we would only do it for the 5:30 session as I have my missionary calling to do and there are usually many phone calls in the AM.
|Getting to the LA Temple at 0500, the Christmas lights were beautiful.|
at the LA Temple-they all love to take pictures when we are done with our session. Sister Cifuentes in the middle is going home in a couple of weeks to Guatamala.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we had Zone Conferences. We only have them every 12 weeks, so it is fun to see them all together. I do a 20-25 minute power point presentation on a medical concern. I talked this time about colds. It is obviously winter, not by the weather, but by the number of Elders and Sisters that are sick with a cold. I enjoy the missionary training that they give and the scriptural instruction that is given. I am amazed at the knowledgable and talented Elders and Sisters that we serve with. They are excellent teachers. I listen to it more than once as I learn something new each time. Wish I could remember better. At the end of the day, on two of the days, our AMA(Area Medical Advisor-the Dr over me) consults with any Elder or Sister that would like to talk to him. There usually are a couple of hours of consulting that he does. I soooooo appreciate him and his wife!

It was wonderful because we did not have time to eat today. Just don't go
grocery shopping when you are hungry-you always buy more.
It is so wonderful to stay busy doing the Lord's work. What a "happy tired" we are at the end of each day.
