Elder Richard G Scott


This week we had a visit of one of the apostle of the Lord. Elder Scott came to our stake conference. I was very excited to sing in a small group at the Saturday session, but we were bucked off the program at the last minute. :( At least I had good seats on the stand.
We loved hearing him and Elder Ringwood speak, and the kids felt the spirit of the Lord and recognized it. We asked them after if they would like to meet him. They DID want to, even though that meant waiting in line. The line moved quickly and when we were next, Brandon walked right up to Elder Scott, shook his hand, looked him straight in the eye and said with the sweetest voice you ever did hear, "We're so glad you came today." Ryan and I immediately teared up. Love that boy!

That's so awesome. We were tempted to come 'crash' your ward ;) We figured it'd probably be packed enough (full of people who were actually supposed to be there) as it was... I'm glad your kids got to meet Elder Scott, I'm sure it'll be something they remember forever!

A girl in our ward was married on friday and they saw him at the temple. Super cool! Does he work the pulpit as well as he does the cameras for general conference, because, really, he is a pro!
