An Apostle of the Lord

Living outside the greater Salt Lake area we aren't exposed to the Apostles and other General Authorities as much as we would like. This past Sunday was a special treat for our Stake. Elder Richard G. Scott came and did a special meeting for us. It was wonderful to be sitting and listening to an Apostle of the Lord and feel that spirit! Even Alexis must have sensed that this was a special meeting because she was amazingly good, not one fit. We did have to remind her to talk in a whisper, but that is just Alexis. He asked 2 Young Ladies to come out of the audience and asked them questions about what their families do with things such as encouraging personal and family scripture study, Family home evening and praying. He spoke to us on losing a loved one. He bore testimony of our prophet and his love and kindness. He bore witness of our Savior and the Atonement. It was so amazing to be able to attend this meeting and I am so grateful that I am a member of this church and that I have the gospel.
