A Memorable Visitor

Sister Burton and her husband greet a member after conference
Sister Linda K. Burton, General President of the Relief Society, visited our stake conference October 17 and 18. She was so gracious and kind. She just radiated love for all, especially the sisters. She gave lots of hugs and smiles to so many. Sister Kerr and Sister Griffeths showed her around the VC and she taught them about prophets and modern day revelation.

As President of the Relief Society, the largest women’s organization in the world, she has stewardship for over 7 million women in the church. She spoke about the Sabbath Day and making it a delight. She bore a fervent testimony of living prophets on the earth today. Her husband shared a few brief remarks and told of Sister Burton’s call from the prophet to serve in this important calling. She and Sister Oscarson were continuing their travels to other places in Europe. We are very grateful for their humble, yet powerful examples of Christ-like love and service.
