Saturday was a really nice day, clear with the temperature in the 70s, this morning we woke up to a strong wind with some rain. The Snow started during Sacrament meeting, as we went to work on the Square it was really cold with a blizzard. The photo it to show the contrast between the spring flowers and the new snow.
Friday we were working at the North Visitors Center when we were told that a VIP group was coming to watch the movie "Legacy". They were the supporting group for David Archeleta. David was in town for a concert Saturday. He came in later to see the rest of the Movie. His family had been visiting with President Monson.
The influence for good that a person like David Archeleta can have is some times not understood. Saturday morning I struck up a conversation of a woman and her preteen daughter who was from Boston. She said that they were in town to be at the concert and she and her daughter wanted to see what "His" home town was like, so they were at temple square. Later that same day a couple of ladies from San Diego said that they here for the same reason.
Mom taught all 160 sister missionaries for Relief Society. She taught about sacrifice, told the story about her father leaving the farm to go on a mission and asked the sisters to share stories about the sacrifices they or their families have made for the church. It was a great experience for her to hear all of the stories from all around the world.
We were working in the call center and had some great conversations and referrals. I talked to a woman about having the elders bring her a Book of Mormon and share the message of the Gospel with her. She said yes please have them come, that she had some good friends who were members of the Church and that she lived just down the street from a LDS Chapel. I called a other person and asked her if she had received the copy of the Book of Mormon that she had ordered. She said yes she had and that her family was just baptised in to the Church. We have been getting something like eight good referrals for each day we work in the Call center. We are now in the center for two hours three days a week as part of our normal rotation. Mom loves it.
General Conference is this coming week end. It will be really busy we will be working on the Square for most of the sessions but will be able to attend one session on Sunday and I will be able to go to Priesthood Meeting on Saturday night. It is so nice to be here and meet all of the Saints from all around the World. It is great to be here doing the Lords' work.
