A NOTE FROM THE EDITOR
Last week I posted Aldste Sweat's 52nd blog entry. He didn't start blogging until exactly 1 year into his 2 years of missionary service. I have thoroughly enjoyed posting his letters and photos this past year. It is with a joyful heart that we are about to welcome our son home from Sweden on Thursday, April 14, 2016. He will be participating in our Sunday Services on Sunday, April 17, 2016. All are warmly invited to join us at 1:00 p.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 3865 Middlefield Road in Palo Alto, CA 94306 to listen to him speak and celebrate his return! We hope to see you there!

I DIDN'T SEE IT COMING
This Friday, I had the chance to go on splits with Elder Bradshaw. It was quite momentous, because nearly 18 months ago, I took him on his first splits. And now, he has taken me on my last. We were in Jordbro and had a good day. Doors were knocked, people were stopped, and we did a lot. I think the best was when we stopped a lady and started by saying we were missionaries from our church, and she smiled and pulled out some pamphlets saying she was also a missionary. I didn't see it coming. But we had a nice discussion and went our separate ways.
GENERAL CONFERENCE GOODIES

HE CAME BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN
We had a nice surprise with General Conference as well (which was great if you haven't seen it yet). Fredrik is someone we have been working with, but he has not had too much of a desire to come to church. He told us he would come to the Morning session, which started night for us. After the meeting, we invited him to the following morning. He was a little uncertain, but said he would try. , he was there again. He liked it, and we invited him to the next one. Again, he said maybe. he was back. Then again at . There was something that kept bringing him back. He loved being at conference, and I think it's because he felt the worth of the words which were spoken. It was cool seeing him come back again and again, and it also helped me remember how cool it is that we have modern-day revelation. Prophets and apostles warning us and giving us counsel.
