We went to the Church last night (Saturday) which was 7pm our time to watch the first session of Conference. Then we returned to watch the second session Sunday at 9am. We watched from 9-11 then had a break for an hour then watched from 12-2 then we fed the missionaries sandwiches, salads, chips, candy and juice. (I think some of them were missing the homemade cinnamon rolls and snuggling on the couch). The missionaries that were close enough to our Chapel came in to view conference here in Donetsk. I am not sure what the Kharkov missionaries did. Some of the Donetsk missionaries from outlying areas did spend the night. I know the Sisters got to stay at the Mission Home with President and Sister Fry. Speaking of Sisters, Sister Howard pointed her mother out who was singing in the Choir. That was fun to see her. The music was beautiful. We really were touched by the children's choir as well. There is one more session tonight but we are going to watch it from our apartment. It has been wonderful. I will write more later.
