We were able to also have zone conference this past week. President Omer is powerful. I love listening to him speak. We talked about how we are going to start working as closely as possible with leaders of our branches and wards. We are going to start meeting with some more less active members and members as well as our investigators each week so that we can really establish the church here in South Africa. He also gave us some new standards of excellence and I'm so excited to implement this plan. We met with the Branch President yesterday and I know that we can really strengthen the church this way.
This past week I was able to finish the Book of Mormon again. I know it's true with all my heart!!! I love testifying of it and how I know that it can bless people's lives. It can truly help you through any difficulty you may face in life. One of the scriptures from Matthew that I really loved was in Matthew 14:24-31. As long as he kept his eyes on Christ and had faith he was able to walk on the water, but the second he took time to look around at the world around him he started to sink. Immediately though, as he looked unto Christ, he was able to help him out of the water. We need to always keep our eyes and hearts focused on what's important in life!
I love you!!
