Another wonderful Mission Home Fireside. Sent out a Text message at about 5;30 to see if anyone was coming. Had RSVP for 53 immediately. And I know at least half don't call. Sure enough we had the biggest one ever. About 90 people. We were overflowing into the dinning rooms and kitchen. But it was so great. The spirit was wonderful.
We had two new converts speak. Bro and Sister Wright, a young couple who have just joined. They had a wonderful spirit and spoke of how the church is strenthening their family and how they are closer as a family now. They have 3 little boys and this has been great for them. They had asked their parents to go to church. It was really special to hear their fresh new testimonies. They are from Richfield, Utah.
We also had a wonderful young lady, Audrey, share her story with us. This is really fun for us because she is from Las Vegas and a lot of our friends know her. She has been taking lessons for over a year and really wanted to get baptized. She has a special and beautiful spirit. She was really a great speaker and got everyone laughing telling them about meeting Elder Tauofou. She said her missionaries were just the right ones for her and that Heavenly Father knew "who she would connect with". She said "being a Mormon means you love your Savior". What a beautiful statement. We all love her and are so happy she has finally found the courage to do what the spirit has been telling her for a long time.

A full house. Missionaries standing at the back
Sister Dana played the most beautiful arrangement of "Jesus once Was a Little Child". Sis Vogelsberg was her music stand.

Sister Lee was asked to share her testimony. Did fabulous as always
Bro David Mullins was asked to share his testimony as he and his family plan a trip to the temple in about 6 weeks. Lots of missionaries are returning to go to the temple with them.
This sweet sister is from South Africa. Her's the First Book of Mormon we have had requested in Africaans. This is really exciting for President Albright. He served his mission in South Africa and was able visit with her in her native language. (She was baptized a bout 10 days later)
