On the last Sunday evening prior to their departure we have a "Talent Show" at the end of the day, allowing the missionaries to share with each other any particular talent or interest they may have. These are always lots of fun and often quite amazing as we find our talents and skills some of the missionaries possess of which we had no idea.
Last night was no exception; in fact it was one of the best and most diverse Talent Shows we have had. I took lots of pictures and videos which I cannot post, mostly because of how long it takes me to post them, but also because I would not want to put on a public site so much personal information about these wonderful missionaries. However, below are a few pictures, and I've especially posted a video of President and Sister Sitterud singing their favorite song. There's a really wonderful story about why this happens to be their favorite song, and for fear of getting some of the details wrong, I'll just say it was the song they sang, a lot, to an older woman Joan took care of while they were dating at BYU. Sadly, this song was removed from the hymn book when it was revised in 1986 (I think that's the correct date).
