General Conference in Palmyra

This was General Conference Weekend.  We went to Saturday sessions at the ward building within which the Mission Office is located and worked in the office between sessions.  Sister Jones and Sister Spencer went grocery shopping while Elder Spencer and I attended Priesthood session.

We made Sunday unique by going to Palmyra to watch the sessions.  The Stake Center there is adjacent to the Temple so it is a cut above as to design and furnishings.  Enough so as to feel special.

Then we went to the Joseph Smith, Sr. farm for a picnic lunch. The plan was to then go to the Sacred Grove to meditate on the Conference talks, but it started sprinkling.  Also, as in the hymn, bees were humming, also quite a few hornets.

So we drove over to the Hill Cumorah Visitors Center where several new segments of the "Meet the Mormons" video are available.  Sister Jones and I saw the segments, "The Entertainer" and "The Artist."  Both are excellent.

 It is Elder Spencer's birthday today, so he and Sister Spencer stayed in the car and took telephone calls from their kids - six sons. The Sisters in the Visitors Center came out to sing "You've had a Birthday, Shout Hooray..." to him.

All in all, a wonderful and memorable weekend. We have a busy week ahead, so be sure to check in next week.
