Speaking of electricity, along with the many other blessings it brings to our lives, it powers the technology we can use to communicate with loved ones half a world away. Our grandson, Ian, played this year on the Stansbury High School varsity football team. Because of the internet and live streaming video, we were able to watch Ian play in the semi-final playoff game this week against Desert Hills. Even though this final game for Stansbury didn't end in their favor, we are sure proud of the team and how well they did this year. And we're proud of Ian working hard to make the varsity team. It is such a blessing to us to be able to stay in touch with family and friends back home. Even when the technology isn't working it reminds us to be grateful when it does.
Elder Schmutz of the Philippine Area Presidency and Elder Adduru, an area seventy, were here to reorganize the Mandaue Stake Presidency. Each of the outgoing and incoming members of the stake presidency spoke along with Elder Adduru and Elder Schmutz. Elder Schmutz talked of the need for Priesthood Keys, where they originate and how they are passed along to a new stake president.
We were able to get a few pictures before the meeting started.

We didn't get a picture of the Christmas countdown this week but did get one inside of the mall which is decorated even more than last year.

Thought for the Week"When obedience ceases to be an irritant and becomes our quest, in that moment God will endow us with power."
