Monday, November 1, 2010

We were in for a treat tonight at FHE with the other Seniors. The new Santo Domingo Temple President was introduced to us. Pres. Larry and Hna. JoAnn Bair start their service as Temple Pres. and Matron tomorrow.

After the FHE Hna. Johnson and I got to talk to them at length. Pres. Bair was the Mission President of the Santo Domingo West mission before Pres. Almonte. The Bair’s are known and loved by many Dominicans that remember him and his time here. The Bair’s are delighted to be able to return here to the DR where they have so many friends from two and a half years ago.

We also go to meet the new 2nd Counselor in the Temple Presidency. It is Pres. William and Hna. Patricia Burk. Hna. Johnson’s eyes lit up when she saw their name on their name tags. Burk (no “e” on the end) is Hna. Johnson’s maiden name. The first thing she asked Pres. Burk was, “Where are you from?” It’s a small world, Pres. Burk is Hna. Johnson’s second cousin!

The Burk’s are from Eagar & Alpine in Arizona, he is the son of Morris Burk. Which means Hna. Johnson’s Father James Burk and Pres. Burk’s Father are first cousins. We had a good time reminiscing about Grandpa Wesley Burk and Earl & Pearl Burk, etc. We had a very good time at FHE tonight.
