Wow. This week was awesome. Mostly due to conference, but there have been little things happening that have made this week special, just like all the rest.
One awesome thing that happened this week! We were going by a list of people in the ward that our Relief Society Pres. gave us, and there was one name in particular that we figured we weren’t going to get in anyways, but we felt like we should stop by anyways. We ended up getting to meet this person, and taught them a short lesson. We even got to help give her elderly mother a blessing, which was awesome to be able to be there and help bring the Spirit.
Not much else except preparing for Conference, going around to all our investigators and following up on inviting them to conference, inviting them again if needed, the gathering of snacks to keep myself awake, usual stuff for a guy like me in a mission such as this. Much like President Uchtdorf, I used copious amounts of a zero sugar, zero carb energy drink that will go un-named. 🙂
Speaking of conference, I’d better get the typical questions out of the way. I liked so many of the talks, particularly because I was able to stay awake through all of them, but I liked Elder Bednar’s talk and Elder Nelson’s talks in particular.
That’s about it this week!
Love you, miss you,
