Bravo My Child...Bravo!
We just got back from a fantastic regional youth tribute at the Conference Center in SLC. Kim and Dan were in charge of their Stake youth and they did a fantastic job! It was a 2-hr. tribute of song and dance depicting different eras in history and the importance of family and temples. These kids were phenomenal. President Monson was there and when he walked in and everyone stood up, it gave you goosebumps. All of a sudden, ever so quietly, you heard the song, "We Thank Thee Oh God For a Prophet" and everyone joined in. We had over 7,000 young people, plus their families singing so reverently and so quietly. It literally brought tears. It was fun watching each Stake do their dances. At the end, they had a Japanese theme complete with drums (which were right in front of us) and a dragon (again...right in front of us). Wow...unbelievable. The girls (Tori and Hayley) did their Polynesian dance. What an experience for them. Brings back memories of roadshows, music and dance festivals back in the 60's. Great job Kim...well deserved! (Too bad I couldn't take pics for you...the girls get a DVD though).
