Seth gave his farewell talk in the Centennial Ward at 8:00 am.  He spoke on Joseph Smith -- the first vision, his endurance through persecution, and the faith he had to have in Jesus Christ to receive revelation throughout his life and restore the Church to the earth. Seth bore his testimony of the prophet Joseph and expressed his desire to follow his example to sacrifice in order to serve the Lord.  It was a wonderful talk!

After sacrament meeting, the day was spent with family and friends. We enjoyed a simple brunch at our home, then attended Tanner Woodard's farewell talk and luncheon.  We ended the evening with a final open house for Seth.
