Tuesday, President Atkinson was still in Puebla so we did not have presidency meeting and so we did some grocery shopping. I still had to go over to the temple and email some things to President Atkinson that he needed. Wednesday, was the same as every other Wednesday. Thursday, we had 2 buses and a very nice day in the temple. Friday we had 3 buses, but still things ran very smoothly. Saturday, we had 8 buses come, 7 of them from one stake and things were pretty busy. We did just under 2900 ordinances. We worked 12 hours straight, 6:00am to 6:00pm with a 10 minute break to eat a sandwich at our desk. I got to do a couple of sealing sessions.

It is great to see the commitment and dedication of this stake. We got home just in time to put on the General Women’s Session of Conference. Sister Ray and Roesberry came over and while they watched I made pulled pork stuffed enchiladas. After dinner, the three men went next door and played pinochle. Sunday we got to sleep in. That means mom got to sleep in and I got up at 5:30am, instead of 3:30 or 4:00am. We went to church for the 12 to 3 block at the Hacienda Ward. I taught the combined Relief Society and Priesthood meeting. Mom said I was not quite as charming as I was last week; she only gave me an 8 out of 10. But she said I taught a good lesson.

We have been asked to go to Puebla tomorrow morning and talk to the EFY (Especially For Youth) group from Oaxaca who will be at a camp that the church owns in the mountains about an hour outside of Puebla. President Atkinson’s wife has been really sick this last week and he wants to stay home and help her get better. So we are going to take his place. We will teach 4 classes on Tuesday and then return on Wednesday. We are looking forward to going; it will be a lot of fun.
