Enjoying Conference Weekend

Dear Family,

Well we had a great week with conference. It was a great spiritual experience listening to the talks that were prepared. I went to conference with the question in mind of how I can finish my mission the strongest way possible. My notebook is full of answers to that. It is cool how questions are always answered in the talks. No matter what question it is that we have in our minds. It is always answered. I don’t know if I really had a favorite talk from conference. I really liked them all. I really liked Elder Holland’s talk as well though. It was a great approach to home teaching and teaching the importance of caring for others. I really loved all the talks about the Plan of Salvation as well. It has become one of my favorite topics out here in the mission. It changes peoples lives when they realize that this gospel has everything that they are looking for spiritually.

This past week we did a lot of administrative stuff. We had two multizones and President Adams did some interviews as well. We also spent a lot of time working on the changes that are coming up in a few weeks. Between all of that stuff and conference, we didn’t spend a whole lot of time in our area. We still did see some good success though. There are a couple of investigators that we have found that are progressing along very well and a couple others that weren’t really progressing before, but have began to progress a bunch. We should be baptizing a family a little later this month and have a couple more baptisms as well with people that we are working with. We haven’t had a whole lot of time working in our area, but we work as hard as we can while we are there and do our best to help President Adams as well. As we have done that, the Lord has provided a lot of miracles in our area.

In the multizones that we had, President Adams talked a lot about obedience. I think it was a great topic and one that is really important. He talked about how we as missionaries have to always have the spirit with us and we can only have the spirit with us if we are being obedient. Between that and conference, I think it really got the point across to the missionaries that it is super important.

Well conference was great! I learned a ton from it. I am working hard and loving the mission. Love you!
