Sunday, March 20th gave us the opportunity to take Elder Howard and Elder Livingston, missionaries serving in the Pagedale Branch boundaries, to meet Sis Annie Stewart. We taught her from D&C 25 and showed her a video on Emma Smith that Sis Hatfield had downloaded to her tablet. The missionaries helped me administer the sacrament, and we sang I Am a Child of God, which Annie remarked was beautiful. I’m sure she meant the melody, not the singing. It was a good addition to our visit to have the young missionaries with us. Later that evening, 12 of our missionaries gave their departing testimonies by video to the entire mission. This is one improvement that I am sure we will not roll back. Having everyone benefit from these powerful messages is wonderful. We certainly enjoyed the intimacy we formerly had of the small group of departing missionaries testifying to themselves in the mission home. But this is better. Thanks, COVID! This is a group of young people that we have served with for over a year now, so we have come to know and appreciate almost every one of them. But preparing for Elder Riley Scheurman to go is especially emotional, because of our close association with him as a housing assistant during the particularly challenging times of the onset of the Pandemic. Sis Hatfield recorded parts of Elder Scheurman’s and Elder McNeil’s testimony to share with their mothers. They will be proud.
