In priesthood meeting today the lesson was on the duties of a Deacon. Normally the Aaronic priesthood and the Elders have separate classes but since today’s lesson applies to the Elders as well they kept everyone together in the same class. There are many, many men in the branch that are Elders that are recent converts and need the instruction on the duties of the Aaronic priesthood. The lesson was taught by Hno. Pierson Joseph and he did a very job teaching.

Again tonight we got to talk to the family on the “Webcam”. We got to talk to Nathan & Valerie, our granddaughter Ella, “Princess Ella” celebrated her 1st birthday today. Also there was Wendy & Jacob and Grandma & Grandpa Burk. Hna. Johnson ordered a doll for Ella’s birthday party, she loved it. Even though she is only one year old she recognized it as hers to play with. The white saddle loafer shoes it was really caught her fantasy. She carried the doll all around upside down by its shoes for the rest of the day!

Today was the dedication of the Gila Valley Temple in Arizona. All wards in Arizona canceled their regular block of meetings so the dedication of the Temple could be telecast into every stake center in the state. We talked to Jared & Tere on the webcam early in the morning and they were just getting ready to go to the dedication. All of our other families we talked to also went to the dedication. They all loved it. For some like our son Jared and his 3 sons, it was the first time they’ve ever attended a Temple dedication.
