Hello, all! I have some happier Church-related newsl pulled from Mormon Newsroom. The Church shared this article regarding the completion of the Ghana MTC renovation & expansion, and this one sharing Church news from various areas of the world, It was great to hear about these updates. Thanks, as always, for the privilege of your time. I will post again soon. Until that time, all the best to each and every one of you.
Added one hour later: This just in: leaders of the women's auxiliaries of the Church (Sister Jean B. Bingham, Relief Society General President; Sister Bonnie H. Cordon, First Counselor in the Primary General Presidency, and Sister Neill F. Marriott, Second Counselor in the Young Women General Presidency) traveled together to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma last Saturday, August 5, for a breakfast with leaders of the government, business, and various religions. The purpose of that gathering was to address the needs of that city to find homes for those in the foster care system.
According to the leaders in attendance at that breakfast, the following faiths were represented at this breakfast: Baptists, Protestants, Jewish, and Mormon. The LDS leaders asked to represent the Church at this event were well chosen. Both Sister Marriott and Sister Bingham have had foster children in their homes, and they and their families love those children as much as they do their own. There was much more to their visit than simply attending this breakfast. You can read more about that subject here. Thanks again to you all for your interest and support, and may God be with you all until my next post.
