Our branch president is working on a special project for the Presiding Bishopric concerning the financial operations of the Church worldwide. During conference weekend he met with three stake presidents from Brazil to explain an experimental program to them. I served as translator. That was a great experience in itself, but also because of the meetings we held I was introduced to Bishops Peterson and Featherstone (of the Presiding Bishopric) and to Elder L. Tom Perry, the new apostle. Our branch president had served in the presidency of the Boston Stake when Brother Perry was president of that stake.
