Not much out of the ordinary today. In the Augusta Ward this morning, the Bishopric was released and, of course, a new Bishopric was sustained and set apart. This may give Elder and Sister Morris a new direction to work, different than what we have been doing under Bishop Burgess. We will wait and see what happens. We had a real good turnout today in our Branch meetings. Over the past several months, we have seen an increase in returned missionaries and a decrease in 18 year olds; certainly it is due to the change in missionary age. We ordained Brother Hancock a priest today in our meetings. We have also seen an increase in the desire of these young men to advance in the priesthood, attend the temple and ready themselves for the full ordinances of the temple. It has been a fine day.
