I hope all is well! This week was great, we survived the rain and made it through the warmth! We woke up this morning to lots of thunder and lots of lightning!! Conference was great this weekend. I enjoy each time we get to listen to the Prophets and Apostles. We just watched it at the church. I liked President Monsons message as well as President Eyrings.
I think Elder Rasbands talk about the Holy Ghost was really good, he mentioned a quote from Joseph Smith "If you respond to the first prompting you will get it right 9 times out of 10." I think we often get caught up on wondering if we are receiving revelation or just thinking ourselves. When in reality it shouldn’t matter as long as it leads us to do good.
President Monson, in the 3 minutes and 28 seconds he spoke on Sunday morning spoke about 2 of the most important things he could tell us. He first announced 5 new temples. Then he mentions how we all need to be reading from the Book of Mormon every. single. day. I am grateful for his council and his testimony which has strengthened mine. He truly is a prophet of God!
The church is amazing, I was reading this morning about when Joseph Smith died and the things that happened while trying to figure out who the next Prophet would be. It was pretty cool what Brigham Young said about how the Keys are with the 12 and the 12 will be shown by the Lord who the new Prophet would be and then would ordain him to that office.
We had some good experiences this past week! We met a lady with a University of Utah sticker on the back of her car. We had a good talk with her about Utah and she told us we could come back. We also were able to teach Peyton and Blake. Blake we had a little hiccup with this week but he ended up coming to conference and enjoying it. Peyton is planning on getting baptized on the 15th. They are both prepared and ready to be baptized. Im grateful for the chance I have had to teach them and work with them, the Lord prepares his people!
Have a great week!
