Spring Conference Weekend & Our Precious New Great Granddaughter ~

I love spring for many reasons. Fifty Years ago, on Saturday, April 1st, my husband and I became engaged. The following morning we attended the 137th Annual worldwide General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The 187th annual conference will be held tomorrow through Sunday, returning memories of those special moments for both of us. 
If you have a few moments, I invite you to watch or listen. You will hear beautiful music and inspiring messages for our day. The messages will be delivered by Church leaders including Prophets and Apostles, called to teach all the world.  
You can check local listings for broadcast times in your area.  
Sessions will be  broadcast by radio and television and can be accessed on-line.

The Prophet in this day was President David O. McKay. We loved Him so much and were thrilled to get to see Him speak that day.

Hmmm, for a moment there, and just for a moment, were thinking an engagement on April 1st might be an April Fools joke?
It was so nice watching conference today. And, as you stated, isn't it wonderful that we get the privilege of actually listening Prophets and Apostles.
It's wonderful that while serving your mission, you can also attend family events/activities.
