President Ostler sent us missionaries an email last week saying that General Conference will be different this time. And the reason is because we are missionaries: we are more in-tune with the Spirit, we are doing the Lord’s work everyday, and we are more matured and ready to receive the spiritual promptings and revelation from General Conference.
Well. It’s all true.
Umma, Appa, I’m sorry that I slept through all the past conferences that we all watched from the comfort of home. Haha! I kept thinking back to past conferences and I was just constantly reminded of how absolutely lazy and stupid I was. Well, it’s taken me 19 years to realize it. Better late than never. Haha!
Anyway, concerning conference… Really just General Conference was unreal. Unfortunately I forgot to bring my notes from home, so I can’t share any of my favorite thoughts from all the speakers, so next time probably. J
Although, I really did love Elder Holland’s talk. His talk was the perfect talk to end the beautiful Conference Session. I think sometimes we all need that reminder, that our Heavenly Father loves us with all HIS HEART, HIS MIND, HIS MIGHT, AND HIS STRENGTH and he wants us to look forward to, because it’s another day where we can serve, and another day where we can grow and become greater Disciples of Christ.
As for an update for this week, I can’t really say that anything stands out to me aside from just, General Conference. It was another normal week of learning and growing and working.
Oh wait… now I remember.
I’M FINISHED WITH MY TWELVE WEEK TRAINING! BOO YAH.
But because of strange circumstances with extending the training time at the MTC, this transfer is going to be 2 weeks longer than usual. So Elder Macanlalay and I are still companions. But all is well! It just means that we have more time together to work and help the people here in Narra, Palawan come closer to Christ!
Well, I really don’t have much else to share.
This church is true. The book is blue. Let’s all press forward without being scared of!
Mahal ko kayo!
