We attended a special Christmas performance presented by Sister Haleigh Vance and her strings students at a local senior apartment complex. She had students from the age of 4 to 14 and they entertained the residents. Sister Vance is the bishops wife of the 2nd ward. She and her students are so very talented and the music was really enjoyed by those in attendance..
Wednesday was a full day, we started out leaving our apartment at to drive up to the temple for our shift. It was a wonderful day of service, that I always love. I worked in the baptistery and a young peoples group from a Spanish branch came in to do baptisms. I was talking to the Branch President and found out he was from
I told him about my grandson serving a mission in Peru
and he wanted to know where Dylan had served and we had a wonderful talk about Peru ..
There were 14 young women and 7 young men in their group and they were so cute..
What a wonderful way to end my shift at the temple. We then went over to the visitors center to
see the group that was performing there that evening. It was "Harbor City Music Company Show
Chorus".. They are a group of 60 women, ages 14 to 75 that perform all
over, even internationally. They have
won many awards and the music was amazing.. They performed for 45 minutes and
we loved every minute of it. Arrived
home about .. long, fun day. Peru
We have been asked to help the Relief Society by serving on the enrichment committee, and met with the chairman of the committee on Thurs. evening. We are excited to help out and help inspire the sisters to new and different ways with food, with new recipes, and ideas on how to utilize those staples they have at home. We will be responsible each month to come up with snacks or tastings to go along with the theme of the activity.
