The current mission president, President Jardine, announced that the new mission president of the Modesto Mission was arriving at 2 p.m. today. Consequently we are now part of a new mission, and the missionaries serving here have a new mission president.
The second historical event is a new ward was created in our stake this evening. This was announced at Stake Conference, and then a special p.m. meeting was held to announce the boundaries and new bishop of the Mountain House Ward. Yes Mountain House has been in the news as not having any water. Now they have their own ward. I understand they will be meeting in the church on the West of Tracy.
By the way, Stake conference was great; very motivating--to pray, read scriptures, love our children, rescue, invite.
