Carrying on the tradition in Mexico. Ice cream after the priesthood session.

October 7th, 2013

Este semana fue bien suave. Estabamos trabajando con muchos de los menos activos para traerlos a la Conferencia General. Encontrabamos un nueva investigador bien animada para escuchar a las lecciones. Yo se que esta obra es grade y maravillosa y estamos en los ultimos dias de la ultima dispensacion.
Well enough of my Spanish. I was super stoked for confrence this past week. I've actually been waiting for conference for about 2 months and it was well worth the wait. As I was watching I was thinking about how I really would have taken advatage of the time I had at home during Confrence and enjoyed it more with my family. I then couldn't help but have tears during the Priesthood session to think that all of the royal army of God was gathered together to listen to the Prophet of God. It was hard as well thinking that I was not with my Dad and Brother my friends and my fellow soldiers in the Royal Priesthood Army. I know that this work is true with all my heart. I know that we are in perilous times like many said and for that many are fighting or are against the Church of God. It was said in the last days that mens hearts shall fail them and that there would arise a great and abomnible church against God. We are in these times and it is our resposability to RISE UP!!! I am so proud of my younger brother Austin who is rising up to face the great and terrible serpent and push forward with this work. He is such a great example to me of a missionary. I want to be a missionary like him and reach out and be a friend to those who need a friend. I wish I could be there for the18th to see this young man enter into the door and get on the path to Eternal Salvation.
I loved Confrence so much and I learned many things that I can improve on. I loved Elder Hollands talk as always. It was truely inspiring and something that I needed to hear. I also loved how many talked on the importance of families in these last days. It's true, the family is the most important group in the church. It is the safest place that we can raise a family and teach gospel principles without the influences of the world. I also loved how many talked on the Atonement. We are not perfect like the Savior and we will not be perfect in this life, but throught the Atoning sacrifice of the Savior Jesus Christ we can become better. I know that these leaders of the church truely are chosen MEN & WOMEN of God. I know that my Savior lives, and because he lives we can too.
