So this past week has been pretty good and spiritual.
is a member that just moved in and we went over to help clean her home.
She has been struggling since being in Meridian because there isn't
much stuff to do for her and her daughter (not the safest area). So kept
her some company then we returned later to have dinner with her family.
I could tell that she needed this time to talk with us.
past Wednesday we had interviews with President Olson, and it went very
well. We got to talk about a lot of things and he told me that I have
changed a lot since the first time he met with me. He told me that I am
meant to be here and I contribute a lot to the mission. That was really
nice to hear him say that.
On Thursday, we had exchanges with
the STL's and everything turned out great. We got to visit all of our
people and we had a blast. I got to serve with Sister Moffet. She is
pretty cool and we had a lot of fun. We got to see Cynthia that morning
so the Elders could give her a blessing, then we got to talk with just
her. The kids are all at school and it was nice to talk with her about
everything. She has been able to stop smoking the past week ever since
the baby was born. We hope that she continues to stop smoking so keep
her in your prayers. It was so nice that everything went well cause
normally it doesn't, so I am grateful for that.
weekend, we had General Conference. It was so amazing!! I had written
down questions that I have and prayed that they would get answered, and
ALL of them did. It is so amazing to see how your questions can get
answered. I am excited about the 3 new apostles that have been called. I
know that they have been called by God and they will serve him well. I
loved President Monson's talk and I was really scared while he was
finishing up his talk. He has dedicated so much of his life to this work
and he is an amazing man. He bore his talk with so much power. I loved
Elder Hollands and Nelson's talks about Women/Mother's. To hear such
powerful speakers talk about our important and how much our Heavenly
Father has in store for us. I noticed a lot that each speaker mentioned
the word Grace. That word has stood out to me the past weekend.
We sent a General Conference package with comfy socks and treats to enjoy!
after Conference, we were at the Slaughters (I love them so much) home
and got to teach Jaylon and Payton. We talked about Keeping the Sabbath
Day Holy and Follow the Prophets. Payton has sch a fire about the Gospel
and has changed a lot over the past few months. Jaylon is trying to
figure everything out for himself and figuring out if there is even a
God. We all bore our testimonies, including Savannah who is 17 and was
baptized before I got here. Even though she is young, she bore the most
powerful testimony that I have heard. We just asked Jaylon that he needs
to pray for himself and he will receive an answer.
I am so
jealous that y'all went to see Idina, that sounds like a lot of fun!! So
happy to hear about the crazy game against Riverton, wish I could have
been there. I am so happy that a lot of people showed up to help with
Mikey's Eagle Project. It all worked out which is so nice. That makes me
think of the talk "Come What May and Love It" Miracles happened and it
is so great that it all happened and that Mikey was able to learn from
this experience. So happy that Chris and Maribel could come up with the
baby and spend time with y'all for conference. I didn't know that they
moved to St. George or I forgot. I missed making our sunday scones but
So happy that everything worked out this past week. I
just want to say how grateful I am to be out on a mission and bring my
brothers and sisters closer to our Heavenly Father.
