A BUSY SUNDAY
Jan 29, 2012. Our Burke ward now begins at 8:30. President Albright spoke in Sacrament Meeting in our ward. I was really grateful for this. We have been here 2 1/2 years and this is the first time he has spoken in our ward. He did a masterful job and know they all enjoyed his spirit and message. He spoke with Sister Jordan Lee, one of our Sister missionaries who serves in the ward. She is a fabulous sister and has had a powerful effect on the Burke Ward. She returns home this next transfer and we will miss her.
Next, we headed to the Reston ward, where President spoke during the 5th hour combined meeting. Again he was great. Told many mission miracles and shared the importance of missionary member work. This is a very ward and friendly ward.
The "Why I Believe Fireside" was held this evening in the McLean stake. These monthly firesides are always uplifting. They are held as evenings of spiritual messages and testimony. And the members and missionaries are asked to invite friends to come and participate.
The invited speaker for this fireside was Ambassador Robert R. King.
He is Special Envoy for North Korean- Human Rights Issues. What a fascinating speaker. he was really wonderful and his stories made you so grateful to live in a place where there are so many freedoms.
