Zone Conference with Elder Teh

Today was a combined 4 Zone Conference with Elder Teh, from the First Quorum of the Seventy. Some of the missionaries travelled 3 1/2 hours to get to Baton Rouge, so they came in yesterday and stayed with the local elders and sisters. It was great to have several of them come in either before or after the meetings. Most of the ones whose pictures I managed to take live 2 or more hours away, so we don't get to see them very often.

After driving in from New Orleans this morning, conducting an 8 hour conference and interviewing a few missionaries, Elder and Sister Teh came to the mission home and had dinner with all of the senior missionary couples except one. What a pleasure it was to meet  and visit with them. They were so pleasant and personable. In spite of his young age, Elder Teh has held many callings of responsibility in the Church. He moved his family to Salt Lake from the Philippines a few years ago. They have a son and daughter attending BYU and another daughter lives with them and attends LDS Business College in SLC. The Teh's were so enjoyable to talk to. It would have been nice to have more time with them, but they had to return to their hotel in New Orleans, where they're staying with their youngest daughter. Happily for them the 2-Zone Conference tomorrow is in New Orleans and they won't have far to go.
