Easter Sunday was a very busy Sunday, but a very rewarding one also. It was another beautiful day with spring flowers and blossoms everywhere. Tony came to church all dressed up and even sang in the ward choir. His baptism date is set in another 2 weeks and we are so excited for him.
Her niece was visiting along with the Laylands who are previous ward members. It was probably the last time we will have dinner with Sister Eldridge and it begins a series of "last times" that we will be experiencing the next few weeks. It is a bittersweet journey that we have ahead of us!
We have started teaching two temple preparation classes - one in each ward. Courtney and Scott are attending the one in the 7th Ward. It doesn't look like it got started in time for us to finish and go to the temple with them since it is a 6 week class and will be interrupted by General and Ward Conferences. Even so it will be wonderful to hear from them about their first trips to the temple after we leave.
The temple class in the 1st Ward is meant for some members to prepare to go to the temple to do baptisms for the dead. We should be able to fit in at least one trip to one of the temples to do this.
We really enjoyed watching General Conference in our apartment. One Saturday we had dinner between sessions with Sister McQuarrie who is the Relief Society President in the 7th Ward along with some elders.
We have started to say a few good-byes and reflect on some of the good people we have met here. It is getting harder and harder to think of leaving and not seeing many people for a very long time.
