Where Your Treasure Is.....

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.

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!

  1. We met the missionary couple in Muñoz when we visited in August. Do you have their email address? We want to send some baby clothes to a child there, but we don't know the gender. Thanks.
