We had zone conference this week!!! It was pretty dang awesome! It was a really spiritual experience and I learned a lot! President Loveland is the goofiest guy haha. I've heard a lot about the previous President and people say it's like a black and white difference haha. He's so wiggly (no really he wiggles when he talks haha). he's really spiritual though and guess what he talked about??? That's right! The Sabbath Day. I really feel like this has been a church theme. We need to understand the importance of the Sabbath and what sign we want to give to God on the day set aside to worship Him.
We also had exchanges this week...I went with the Sister Training leader's companion and it made me really grateful for my companion and how well we get along haha. She wasn't bad we just didn't click. She made me a Plan of Salvation cut out though :) I just have to tell you how much I love my companion. She gets the weird me haha.
We had our baptism!!! Patty and Becca are awesome. This lady is already through the Doctrine and Covenants! That's crazy! They were a part member family and were found a transfer before I came. It was awesome because Patty's husband was able to baptize them!
In our town, there was a 13 year old girl who got both forms of leukemia and the whole town pulled together to help her. Belle (our mission mom) worked with her mom and somehow is kind of related to them. Other people we work with a lot knew her too. She passed away this week. It was a really hard thing but we know that she is in a better place and is no longer hurting. There is a quote by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf that says, "Endings are not our destiny. The more we learn about the gospel of Jesus Christ, the more we realize that endings here in mortality are not endings at all. They are merely interruptions - temporary pauses that one day will seem small compared to the eternal joy awaiting the faithful. how grateful I am to my Heavenly Father that in His plan there are no true endings, only everlasting beginnings."
General Women's Session was amazing as well! I loved it all!!! President Uchtdorf's talk was fantastic!! I want a copy of his talk so badly! We want to print it out to give it to one of our investigators :) Oh and guys! Go watch the "Testimony of the Book of Mormon" Mormon Message!! I love it. Elder Holland is my favorite haha. Well I love you all!
