Tender Mercies, General Conference

After receiving our call, we were informed that we could attend General Conference in April if we chose, and of course we chose. The main conflict is that we had already booked tickets to North Carolina leaving the Wednesday before conference to visit our family in North Carolina and then attend a practice round at The Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta Georgia. So Sister Tucker being a gifted and determined unpaid travel agent she got us flights that allowed us to fly to North Carolina on Wednesday, visit and then fly back to Salt Lake on Friday. Pick up materials for our mission attend Conference during the Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning sessions.

After the Sunday morning session we left the Conference Center and flew back to North Carolina continued a wonderful visit with our families, and then attended the Masters. We then flew back to Twin Falls on Wednesday, quite a week of travel for us.

The Tender Mercy? We chose the Saturday Afternoon and Sunday Morning sessions, it just so happened unknown to us, a dear friend with whom I have served many years with in Bishopric, Stake Presidence etc...was called and sustained as a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy Elder Brent H. Nielson. What a blessing to sit right behind their family as he was sustained, and we witneseed this great event in their life.
