Following the visit of Bishop Edgley and Elder Teixeira, the arrival of 9 new missionaries, and the departure of 5 missionaries completing their service, we hopped in the car and drove north to the beautiful city of Vitoria.
The occasion was to attend the stake conference of the Vitoria Stake, exactly one year after the stake was organized. The Saturday afternoon/evening meetings were held in the stake center in Vitoria. The general session on Sunday was held in an auditorium at the Basque Country University in Las Arenas, about an hour north of Vitoria.
President and Sister Moore, president and matron of the Madrid Temple, also attended, and we drove up from Vitoria to Las Arenas together on Sunday.
It was a wonderful conference as we became acquainted with many of the great leaders and members of Spain's newest stake!
