'Tis Eventide with Elder Holland...

Moscow Stake Conference.  What a delight.  We traveled to the Amber Conference Center, a very large arena that the church secures for big events.  Over 1000 members attended.  We met so many people.  The messages were strong and timely.  But what struck us most was that no one wants to leave.  They are so happy to be together.  We met so many kind and loving people.  We are blessed.

Vasily conducted the Stake Choir.  He is a marvelous work and a wonder.  His arrangement of "There is Sunshine in My Soul" brought us to tears.  This is one of Elder Hollands favorite hymns.  Check out Vasily @  He is in our branch.  I was able to play the piano for him last Sunday while he taught music to the Primary.  Mack Wilburg would have been in awe🎶

The above picture was taken 45 minutes after the conference ended!  

Me with a member from South Africa, from Russia, and Samaria.

Elder Hollands counsel to the saints in Moscow:
  • Be the best Christian member you can be.
  • Take advantage of this golden moment and teach the less active.
  • Stay temple worthy.  Live for it, Love for it.

  1. Elder Holland's counsel reminds me of what Elder Packer told the Elders in Tonga where we served 1996-98. "You can't imagine the good you can do for the church by just being good.
