After the Days for Girls event, I had 20 min before it was time to leave for Moses Lake for the weekend. Then we were off. We attended the 4:00 session with Elder John Pingree as our visiting authority. It was a wonderful meeting.
Here are the good missionaries and members we saw tonight in Moses Lake:These two are my 4th cousins–Elder Holt and Elder Turley.Between the afternoon session and the 7:00 evening session, we all ENJOYED the soup fest, which is held on the Saturday evening of every single stake conference. Everyone comes and we all love it.Every table has a pot of homemade soup and a basket of rolls. There is a table of desserts off on the side. You can graze from any pot you like. Most try several. I’ve made the sisters here PROMISE me that when the day comes that a cookbook is compiled, one will be sent my way. The soups are always Delicious!Pres and Sis Brinkerhoff, from the Columbia River Temple:This was before I sent these Elders off to scatter and mingle among the members!Time for a little dessert! Yes, he ate them ALL!Our Moses Lake Patriarch, John Redford:The YSA table!And then in about 5 min, the whole room is taken down and chairs are set up for the 7:00 session! Many helping hands:OK. I just have one thing to say about this. These are New Chairs. I’ve been sitting on COLD hard metal chairs for 3 years, and now that it’s time to leave, the church is sending NEW Comfortable, not Freezing COLD, bouncy chairs that are light-weight and easy to set up and take down. I think we should get to start our 3 years over again with these new chairs. Seriously. They are COMFORTABLE!! I wonder how many 100s of hours I’ve sat on hard metal chairs these last 3 years. . . .Our last night in a hotel. Conference continues in the morning.
