Emily W. Jensen: Today in the Bloggernacle: A blog reports the creation of the 1st Mormon stake in Russia
Moscow stake: "There was a feeling of excitement in the air, as the members sensed this was a significant step in the advancement of the church in this part of the world. As I looked at the large assembly of people gathered for the conference I thought of the hundreds of missionaries who have served here over the past 20 years, and the tremendous investment of time and resources to bring the church to this point. There is much more work to be accomplished, but today was a great milestone.”

Genealogy trip: “The You Go Genealogy Girls…Grannies on the Go” just wrapped up a trip to Salt Lake City, and I loved reading about their genealogy adventures in the Family History Library and their escapades finding ancestors in the surrounding cemeteries. Scroll through the last few weeks for their complete chronicle. But here’s a taste: “While I am not of the Mormon faith, the Latter-day Saints have an extremely interesting and honored history and The You Go Girls really enjoyed our little day outing when we learned more about our family and paid respects to our ancestors!”
