September 28, 2013 - General Relief Society Meeting

Sister Heimuli's mom and Aunty Nei were able to attend the General Relief Society Meeting at the Conference Center where Hevynn sang in the MTC Sister Missionaries Choir.  Simply radiant, she sang her heart out and looked happier than ever!  As soon as the camera zoomed in on Sister Heimuli for those watching the broadcast or live stream, Mom's phone lit up with emails/texts from people saying, "I just saw Hevynn!"  Hevynn's Laurel advisor, Tam Simon, sent some great pics -- the ones we took in the Conference Center didn't turn out so well.  Here's one of the pics Tam took:

It was an inspiring evening with words of wisdom and counsel from the General RS Presidency, Sister Burton, Sister Stephens and Sister Reeves, and our beloved prophet President Thomas S. Monson regarding keeping covenants.  Mom and Aunty Nei did not move an inch when the Conference Center began emptying out, but stayed (and waved, laughed, cried happy tears, and flashed "I Love You" signs back-and-forth).  Seemingly all-too-soon, Hevynn waved one last wave, walked off the stage and headed back to the MTC.

Sister Heimuli leaves for Japan next Monday, October 7th.  Hope the next 16 months fly by!
