Jayleen leaves on her mission & District Conference, our last

  We had the opportunity of attending District Conference, and it was amazing.  24 Men received the Melchizedek Priesthood. That and the 800 + in attendance, hopefully will help us finally get a Stake out here. We now have over 1900 members, over 125 Melchizedek Priesthood holder and tithe payers, and many less actives that are coming back into activity.
   In September, Pres. Mecham ask that all the missionaries focus on Prospective Melchizedek Priesthood, and the less active.  We have all been working hard, and the results were amazing today.
     I missed the meetings on Saturday, because I had to be to the Airport to get Jayleen Aldan off on her mission, so I was excused, and after seeing her off, I had to wait and pick up our mission nurse, Sis McClellan. What a great weekend.
   The spirit was poured out upon all of us that last 2 days, even though we will not be here when the Stake ( I am thinking positive) is created, our hearts will be here with our beautiful Pohnpeian people
Jayleen and her family, their first child to serve a mission,

Time to go

A tear or two

A smile for all of us and she is off

Pictures do not do justice. This Chapel was built to hold
300 people, today it held over 800, good thing they
don't have fire codes here.

There were so many people, all the missionareis were ask to sit on the Stand
to make room

Standing room only
