This weekend has been pretty neat. It was our Stake Conference. We had a special speaker coming it was Elder Cook one of the 12 apostles. He did a amazing job. He spoke on sat night to us at the adult session and then at the priesthood session then at the main session. He placed a special blessing over are valley. Our Valley is what we call it has been really hit hard with people losing there jobs and there homes. It is beginning to look in a lot of places like a ghost town. People are moving out by the handful because they can't afford the gas into town. He said in his blessing things will get better and we will be blessed. It was really neat to hear him and his wife speak. I snapped a picture of the kids before going today. Baxter got to sit up on the stand and sing. The aaronic priesthood have been practicing for the last little bit and got to sing a few songs today. They sounded amazing. Even Elder Cook commented on them.
a story was even told about our wards Young Women.
I guess I never have told anyone about are trip down the river and what happened.
Well when we went down the sevier river this summer with the yw the river was really high it was fast and at flood stage. The boat I was on had a pretty new guide
I thought he did a great job and the girls liked the looks of him.
Anyways about half way down the river Jason threw a necklace into us just messing around.
The guide went after it and before we knew it he had floated down the wrong side of the river. we hit a rock and one of the yw flew out of the boat. The look on her face was so sad. A scared to death look as she tried to grab our paddles to get back in she missed all of them. We began to travel down stream and are guide said someone else will have to get her. We all were sad to leave her behind.
Here she is wandering alone
