Then we went outside to play! They had a giant parachute, a football field, and tug-o-war. They had a blast!
We had lunch with the whole stake while we listened to Mrs. Holland (Jeffery R Holland's daughter-in-law. She is the wife of the President of UVU and Elder Holland's son). She talked about education and how important it is for girls to get their education. She was great!
Then, it was lake time in the canoes!
After that, we were pooped. The bishopric were coming for dutch oven dinner. We helped with the yummy dinner.
After dinner, it was to a fireside by Sister Dalton!! We get to the gathering and there was no Sis. Dalton. Her car overheated and they had to tow it home and drive a different car so she would be about an hour late. The Stake thought it would be cool to welcome her with all the girls lined up and singing the Come Unto Christ song we've been learning. When she finally came, she got out of her car and walked the mile up the amphitheater with the girls following and singing. It was amazing. We were all getting choked up. Then, she spoke as it rained off and on. Afterward, hundreds of girls wanted to meet her. She would give each of them a hug, look into their faces, and give them words of encouragement. It was awesome to witness. She had a beautiful spirit about her. I loved that so many girls wanted to meet her. Then, it was testimony meeting. It was so late but almost every girl wanted to bear their testimonies, one after another. The Spirit was so strong. I was grateful to be there to witness it all.
