Today we flew to Alice Springs with Mom and Dad.  The flight was blessedly uneventful.  We stopped for lunch and then went straight to the church for a missionary zone conference.  Dad asked Abram and I to speak and I’m so glad he did.  I really enjoyed Abram’s talk, and I loved remembering and retelling so many meaningful stories from my mission in Argentina. 

Watching Dad teach the missionaries was wonderful.  I just kept thinking, do these 20 year old kids have any idea how lucky they are to have him as a mission president?  My mom didn’t speak because she was kind enough to watch our kids so we would have the chance to participate. 

It was a great day, but it’s only 7:30 and I am utterly exhausted (Abram made it until 7 before he fell asleep).  That seems to be a running theme throughout this trip.

Even the mssionaries who aren't 20 year old realize how very blessed they are to have your father for a mission president We also loved the talks and spirit you and Abram shared with us.
