This week we had a big meeting all day Tuesday, went on exchanges with Elder Andersen!! Put in work, gathered the entire mission here in Daya to have a very special meeting! And had a special stake conference Sunday. And it's transfer day!!
Planning is so important. Holy cow. Sometimes it takes FOREVER, but if it's done right it makes life so much easier. There's this HUGE cultural thing here where everyone just wants to "rely on destiny" and that's nice, but it leaves out the need to use our agency!!! Which is such a huge blessing from Heavenly Father. When we use our agency to plan and then carry out those plans, miracles happen.
Elder Andersen is such a stud. On exchanges he helped me get a bar muscleup which is a big deal for me! haha
Brother Yang passed his baptismal interview this weekend!!! YAY!!!! Elder Johnson is out, Elder Choi is in!! Don't know much about him yet, but I'm pumped!!!
So the giant meeting that happened here in Daya was pretty neat. There were FIVE general authorities that addressed us: President Teh, Elder Meurs, Bishop Causse, Elder Christensen from the presidency of the seventy, and Elder Gary E. Stevenson of the twelve. And I shook all of their hands!!! haha. Interesting. Just super interesting. Nothing crazy, but the Spirit was in great abundance, and there were answers received to questions. Elder Stevenson is really really cool. I developed a lot more love for him!
The next day his wife and him also addressed our stake here! Wow that was great too. Sister Stevenson talked a lot about doing hard things and trusting Heavenly Father when we're faced to do those things. I'm super grateful for that opportunity to hear from them!
