This weekend was the Stake Conference for the Neuquén Stake. They had their priesthood leadership meeting and adult meeting yesterday. Today they had a meeting at 9:00 for married couples and the general session at 10:00. The only problem was that there was no electricity in the building this morning. They found a way with a generator to get power to the microphone and the electric piano. It was a little dark but we could hear well and the very special musical numbers had accompaniment! The meetings were wonderful and there was a special spirit as we met with no lights!
President Lovell and I both spoke last night and President talked today. He asked all those that were between the ages of 12 and 22 stand to shop all the potential missionaries there were there in the Stake. He then had all of the full time missionaries stand so the members could see what a strength they had in their stake. Then he shared what a blessing it had been for him to serve a mission and what a blessing it will be in all the lives of those who are serving now and for those who can serve from the stake in the future. There were many testimonies born and much council given by all those who spoke.
Then after the meeting it is always fun to see some of the missionaries!
These Elders are ready for the cold! It is definitely winter in Neuquén!
