|Fireside with Elder and Sister Oaks|
It's always a wonderful experience to have a visiting General Authority speak to the missionaries, but it's a real treat to have an Apostle visit. We were thrilled to have Elder and Sister Oaks join us in Rome for a Sunday evening Fireside. We were unable to bring all the missionaries into Rome so only those who are currently serving within an hour's travel time were invited to attend in person. All the other missionaries were given the option to listen via the internet.
Elder and Sister Oaks attended church with the Rome 2 and Rome 6 wards and then went to the Rome Temple Site for a tour. We had lunch at the Mission Home and two of our senior missionary couples assisted with the preparation and serving. It was a special occasion for them and a blessing for us.
