This evening we arrived at Azua office to spend the night. President Almonte and Sister Almonte are here too. They will accompany us to Neyba tomorrow to change the branch leadership. President Almonte has been very busy this week. He just arrived here from Bani where he has been interviewing all of the district and branch leaders and changing all of the leadership. This evening he is conducting a special fireside here in Azua that is specifically designed to help activate less active members. He is really a busy, busy mission president. But he’s not just a mission president. He must oversee the affairs of 5 districts in his mission and all of their branches. I really don’t know how he does it all. But he somehow finds the time and the energy to get it all done. He is a great mission president.

This evening in the Azua office I set of the laptop with the internet and Hna Johnson got to listen to the General Women’s broadcast live from Salt Lake City. She loved it. Over the years Hna Johnson has held callings in the primary, young women and the relief society. She loves all three organizations but her calling of choice has always been with the young women (I think it is because she had 6 sons and no daughters of her own). After listening to the inspiring talks by the R.S. leaders in SLC and to the Brethren, she exclaimed “I never thought I would say this but I really miss my relief society”.
