Hanna provided two musical numbers today in her YSA branch. She played piano for Kimberly Eden and then sang a duet with Jenna Tyler. Both sets of grandparents (Jack and Nancy Bruns and Clair and Carolyn Williams) were able to attend both her talk this morning (Farewell Talk #2) and listen to her special musical numbers in the afternoon.
Hanna gave her farewell talk in her home ward (Liberty 1st Ward) where she was asked to speak about the Savior and the resurrection. She quoted John 16:33 that says “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have apeace. In the bworld ye shall have ctribulation: but be of good dcheer; I have eovercome the world.” She bore her testimony of the Savior and challenged everyone to learn more about the Savior and His mission.
Hanna gave her farewell talk today in the Liberty Young SIngle Adult Branch. She was asked to speak about a talk from the last General Conference. She spoke on Pres. Utchdorf’s talk “Grateful In Any Circumstances” (https://www.lds.org/general-conference/2014/04/grateful-in-any-circumstances?lang=eng&media=video#watch=video).
Hanna has the chance to attend the temple for the first time for herself. She was accompanied by: Cliff and Wynette Bruns (Parents), Jack and Nancy Bruns (Grandparents), Paul and Jennifer Jury and Caylee Stern (Friends). Sister Diane Karpowitz from the temple presidency was so kind and thoughtful as she checked in on Hanna several times to make sure that she was having a great experience.
Hanna was scheduled to go through the temple on April 1st. Instead at 4AM she made a surprise trip to the emergency room to be diagnosed with passing a kidney stone. After two rough days, she’s feeling much better and excited to back in the land of the living.
