We arrived at meetings and were sitting their calmly until after the sacrament was passed and we heard announced that "Elder Clark would be our speaker." A new speaking schedule had come out in January listing us to talk on Feb. 19th and we thought (never assume!) that any old assignments were dropped!!! No - not so! Anyway, Brent did a great job of speaking about "coincidences" - pointing out that "coincidence was God's way of being anonymous." Some of you will remember the incident where Brent weighted down his boots and put a hose in his mouth with which to breath, so he could retrieve a borrowed swimming fin from the bottom of a pool in a stream - the breathing hose failed and he was unable to kick the weighted boots off! He doesn't remember anything beyond trying to kick the boots off and then everything went black. The next thing he knew was that he was surfacing, but he was quite a distance downstream from where he was. Coincidence? He doesn't think so!
Pres. & Sis Charles flew to Cyprus this afternoon for Zone Conference to be held this week. We drove them and we had a quiet afternoon and evening. We finally found a way to connect on the computer to watch "Music and the Spoken Word" so that was a nice bonus.
