Relief Society Commemoration

On Wednesday, March 17th, we had the wonderful experience of attending a commemoration of the organization of the Relief Society in the VERY PLACE WHERE THE ORGANIZATION TOOK PLACE - JOSEPH SMITH'S RED BRICK STORE!!
The site missionaries put on a wonderful program there and they did an extra performance for all the Temple missionary sisters. We also were able to borrow period dresses from the sewing room and ride there in the wagon pulled by two very beautiful horses. It was a once in a lifetime experience!

Brother Williams and Leishman, our drivers
on the wagon, headed for the Store. It was cold...about 40 degrees! The day before it had been 60!!

A difficult time for the Saints. You have an interesting mission. You are living history at the same time that you are making history.
