Women's Conference

Wow what a way to get invigorated and receive a boost. The conference was great. I attended 3 classes on Thursday and Friday. There was a humanitarian project on Thursday evening that we all participated. What great members we have. We filled 20,000 hygiene kits. There was also baby kits, and school bags put together. One of the volunteers told us that in some countries children could not go to school unless they had their own paper and pencils. There was a little boy that had one piece of paper and every day would write notes on it then go home and carefully erase it so he could use it again the next day. How blessed we are to live in the United States. There was a concert after the project and it was great! On Friday our closing speaker was Pres. Monson. He has always been my favorite. What a wonderful man he is and what great advice he gave us. Thanks Mom, Deni, and Jessica for going with me. I think I might have to make this a yearly thing. I felt so ready to take on the world when it was over. Mom and Jess, thanks for making the drive with me, it made it go by a lot faster. Till next year girls!!

That's great that you had such a great experience, although I don't remember anyone ever coming back and saying, "boy, that really sucked!" Sorry for being so irreverant on your blog. I went one year and am just being ultra jealous that you got to go. The humanitarian projects were completely overwhelming and amazing.
