Last Saturday Christian and I met up with our good friends,
Clark and Christine Gilbert.
Christine and I grew up in Provo, Utah
in the same Oak Hills neighborhood,
and Clark's dad, Christine's dad, and my dad were all buddies
who attended the same grade schools.
A few years ago we spent a wonderful weekend with the Gilberts in Idaho
where I was invited to give the devotional to the BYUI students.
Clark was serving as the University President.
Now he is serving as a General Authority Seventy,
and he gave the best talk at General Conference this past October that
had such a profound effect on Claire in Brazil.
She's sorting out her future decisions particularly with education, and
this talk really helped her find purpose and clarity.
"In the Lord’s timing, it is not where we start but where
we are headed that matters most."
-Elder Clark G. Gilbert
