A Special Week

Just a bit more time from the Sri Lanka tale to enjoy this week. We stayed up late in the night to listen to General Conference live from Salt Lake City. We will see it delayed on this Saturday and Sunday but it will be tucked in among other things and it was nice to get a head start. Conference is always so tender and meaningful that you hate to see it end. We have baptisms at both building Sunday and will try to figure that out and the day before between conference sessions we will speak at a special ministry meeting . We wondered about teaching to many at one time when we were pondering this mission and this will be the first time that it happens.

On top of other exciting things this week special friends from home sent us Easter "baskets". Very exciting!
We feel the love that came all the way across the ocean and of course nothing tastes as good as the familiar.

It was fun to talk to you doing conference in the middle of your night. We went out to dinner after Priesthood session and we missed you.

Good for you. That is a great tradition that dad and I started. So glad that we added all the children as you reached the right age and even happier to see you keep it going. It is a wonderful time to connect and stay up with the latest counsel to the men.
