A great great week! This past week has been incredible. We are teaching one of the most prepared person I have ever met. We were able to see Landela on Friday night. She went through her whole story of how she has been searching for years and years for the place for her. She has been to a lot of different churches and none of them give her the spiritual upliftment she wants. Her friends are members and because of their example and the happiness they have in their life she decided she needed to try out their church. The lesson we had with her was incredible... we talked all about the organization of the church and answered a lot of her questions. She wants to learn about temples this week. I am so grateful I have had the opportunity to meet her. She is golden.
Transfers are this next tuesday so we will see if I will be going or not.I hope I don't go because of Landela, but we will see.
We will be watching all of conference this weekend with the ward, but we were able to watch the first session with the Mckee family in our ward. We have gotten really close to them and they are just the best! My favorite talk from the first session was D. Todd Christoffersons. I just loved it. One thing I really enjoyed was when he said "Freedom comes not from resisting, but by applying." It is so true. We gain our freedom as we exercise our agency righteously! Not just by avoiding sin.
In John 7:17 it talks about how we need to act to REALLY know if something is true! It is a well known scripture, but I think it really applies as we have just had conference. Conference is good for us to learn and to be uplifted spiritually, but it will have its true impact on us if we take what we learned and act upon it! If we really apply it in our lives! I hope that we can apply and become what we are intended to be!
I love you!
