Who am I and where am I going?

Some days I have to remind myself who I am and gratefully we have assistants and office staff to tell us where we are going! 
Elders Hernandez and Jamett- our assistants

We had a great experience with Elders Waddell and Davila as they visited to reorganize the stake presidency in the San Fernando Stake of Cali on October 16 - 17.  They inspired the saints to look to the temple, to listen to the prophet, to do the little things in their families that would strengthen and bless, and to continue to be faithful.  Being with them reminded me that I am a daughter of God and the Lord is mindful of me.
