Gary E. Stevenson

Well, he did good! My 'little' brother was a speaker in LDS General Conference yesterday. (Sunday afternoon). He did a great job and we're all happy for him and his wife Lesa that his talk went well. He said that he really wasn't nervous except for a few seconds initially. He said that you really can't see the audience (pictured below in the photo of the Conference Center auditorium) when you're behind that podium and that helps. There are four teleprompters and lots of lights. Gary said that he just pictured himself speaking to the church members in Japan, and that made him so he wasn't nervous. He and Lesa will go back to Tokyo Thursday after a whirlwind visit. It has been so good to see them and their son, Kyle, 13.

I fell asleep and missed it!!! I plan on buying the DVD of conference when it hits the shelf @ the Distribution Center.

Just love me anyway.

I just think it is wonderful! I can't believe how it must feel to say "that's my brother!"
