When President Clark was a Stake President, he would be responsible to have a Stake conference two times a year. In the Angeles Mission there are 5 Districts and 7 Stakes. It is like working with 7 Stakes and overseeing 5 small Stakes. When you count them up it means 24 conferences per year. We had our first District Conference last Saturday and Sunday. Both of us will each give 2-3 talks at each conference. We're going to need many more diving and grandchildren stories.
Camiling West District Presidency with Elder Raul Villanueva.Later Sunday evening we were asked to speak to a group of over 200 youth and their parents at a Fireside. Our theme was, "Where Your Treasure is, There Will Your Heart Be Also." President Clark asked for volunteers who wanted to be NBA Superstars. Then he took out jerseys for 3 NBA stars and three basketballs. The crowd went wild. He then went on to teach that just because you wear the jerseys it doesn't make you a star. It's what's in the inside that matters.
Here are the missionaries who did such a great job testifying to the youth of the wonderful blessings that comes from serving a mission. The treasure box was a hit as it had a sweet treasure inside for all who attended. What a full and fulfilling weekend!
