We went to sacrament meeting at 7:30 am. Wonderful talks, one of the Sister's did a solo, and the spirit with the Elders and Sister are powerful. Then we had breakfast brunch then on to Relief Society in a large room. Sister Mary L. Edmund, I think that was her name talked with us. She was so good, we laughed and laughed and laughed until our sides hurt. She was Awesome!!!! Then the next meeting we went to, same place was Sister Hacking talking to all the new sisters about the rules. We stayed since we were all ready there and our husbands had gone to Priesthood Meeting and wouldn't be done until 11:30 am, the same as us. We met them after and had lunch at the MTC. After we left and went to church with Kimberly in her ward. That was Fast and Testimony Meeting and was such a spiritual high again. We went to all meetings at her ward then went back to her house for supper with Tami and Ken and Family. Then we left and said good-bye to everyone and went back to the MTC to a Fireside at 7:00 PM. It was another great meeting and Brother Greg B. who is over mission advertisement's, he was so interesting. He has been to England and has done a great job showing the advertising in UK. He has put Mormon advertising on double-decker buses and on buildings so many non-members have been contacting the missionaries. He mentioned that his father served a mission in Northern England and Jim said, " I had an Elder in my mission with that same last name." So after, he went up to talk with him and sure enough it was his father that Jim knew. Interesting and small world isn't it. Good Night!!
PS- I forgot to mention that Sister Hacking is the wife of Elder Hacking and mother's name is Gene Hacking from Blanding. Yes, he is Jim's cousin, that grew up in Blanding that is in the MTC Presidency. Elder Hacking's brother Tom Hacking was a class mate in San Juan High School with Jim.
