A Real Honor-- Dinner with the Senator
After the baptisms on Saturday, President Albright and I drove to Washington DC to meet with Senator Harry Reid and his wife, Landra. We feel very honored to have such an important man call and invite us to dinner with them. Senator Reid is from Nevada and was in our ward when he lived in Las Vegas. He and his wife were good friends with both Pres and my parents. But they have been in Washington for many years. Senator Reid called Pres. Albright when he first received this call and congratulated him. And we were surprised and delighted when he called last week and invited us to meet them for dinner. We went to a lovely restaurant right near the White House. We spent a wonderful 2 hours visiting and enjoying their company. We were also accompanied by Bishop Faust and his wife. He serves as a Bishop in our mission. He is the son of Elder James E. Faust. What an honor to be among such great people.
