Visiting Teaching Convention
I am so happy this morning. The Visiting Teaching Convention went great. We had around 40 people there. The food was fantastic and the program was very nice. All the sisters seemed to have a great time visiting and bonding with each other. Reuel Smith came over to set up the tables for us. He was so inspired. He put 8 tables in a square with two on each side. Then he put the chairs around the outside. It seemed like we were sitting in a big circle. You could see every person there as we ate. It seemed like the ladies of the ward were really becoming a unified group. Forming a new ward is an interesting experience. It's great when there is a feeling among the group that they want to make it a great ward and learn to love and help each other. My calling is hard for me because of my shyness, but is so rewarding. I'm grateful for this opportunity to learn to love so many of my neighbors.
