Hey all! I hope everyone enjoyed General Conference! I LOVED it. I'll get to that in a bit though.
We taught Laura this week, and had a lesson about baptism. We brought some members over that have a son the same age as her son. They really hit it off, as 7 year old's usually do. Laura is doing so well! I'm praying she decides to get baptized!
We went on exchanges, and I went with our district leader. It turns out that our personalities really don't match. I had a very difficult time getting along with him, and I'm thankful that it was only 24 hours. I'm still praying for help to get along though!
Now for General Conference!
Yesterday, we watched conference with Matthew at his house. He really liked it! Later after conference, we played games with some members. We ended up playing Bean-Boozled, a game with jellybeans. The game is there's a good flavored bean and a bad flavored bean but they look the same. You can get peach or vomit, Chocolate or dog food, Banana or dead fish, Coconut or rotten milk, etc. well, I ate dog food, vomit, dead fish, and rotten milk. It was so funny, I've never laughed that hard! The downside is that I'm still tasting them today. It was so fun though!
My favorite thought comes from the first talk of themorning session of conference. Sister Carol F McConkie told a story about President Eyring and his father. Although in terrible pain and uncertain of his days, the answer received from heaven as to why he was suffering was, "God needs brave sons!" Heavenly Father needs each of us, especially on our missions, to be brave! He needs us to face hardship and trial with courage, pressing forward without hesitation. I'm so grateful for these words. It may become my new motto!
Thank you all for your prayers. I feel them every day! I hope everyone has a fantastic week. Love you all!
Our sweet conference setup!
