    • Rocky Baso spoke about his experience at the Laie Hawaii temple on 1/25 participating in saving ordinances.  Also on that night was the LDS prom.  "I know I made the right choice (in attending the temple)," he said.
    • Lele Stanley told us that integrity is the foundation for faith and that her testimony is her foundation.  Referring to foundation, she read Helaman 5:12.
  • Adult speakers
  • Sean Jung
    • Jodi Presbitero spoke about testimony which is "knowledge and a spiritual witness given by the Holy Ghost"  A testimony is gained, she said, by personal desire and prayerful seeking.  She also mentioned that a testimony should be borne, and doing so is our duty.
    • Sean Jung, who just returned from two years of service to the Mexico City East Mission, shared about his mission experiences, including the growth of his testimony "100 fold."  Among the many things he mentioned were forming bonds with church members there to move the work forward, working in several different areas in the mission, serving as district leader, taking a shower with water from a bucket and a plastic yogurt cup, and being robbed at gunpoint on the way to church one Sunday.
