Saturday was this young man's birthday. Wesley is our oldest grandson, and a kind, helpful, funny, hip, and smart guy. He received the Aaronic Priesthood today and we couldn't be prouder of him.
Happy Birthday, Wes!
Tonight we went to a Why I Believe Fireside at the Washington D.C. Temple Visitor Center. speakers were Brother and Sister Schaerr. He is one of the country's leading appellate lawyers, meaning he argues cases before federal courts and The Supreme Court. He has argued before the Supreme Court six times and help prepare many other cases. They both gave wonderful talks on why they believe in Jesus Christ. The Spirit is so strong at these events. The place is full of young missionaries and a lot of investigators. They are talking in English, Spanish, French, and ASL. They have a slide show of the previous month's converts. I have entered each of them in the Church's database and can put a face to a name when I see the slide show. It is a wonderful feeling.
