Week 4

Hey family!
So good to get all of your emails again! Go Bulldogs! I was stoked to see we got battle of the bone again, that is dope! Tell the boys I said hi! It was an amazing experience to have the Prophet here this last Saturday. Unfortunately we weren't allowed to bring our cameras so I don’t have any pictures from that but it was an amazing experience. It actually wasn't at the CCM. We had to drive in a bus about 45 minutes to a stadium because he was going to speak to us along with 4000 other people. This was a perfect opportunity for me to finally talk to some people and the get to know the members. I had several conversations with them and they are some of the sweetest people on the planet! Also I was able to meet my mission president while we were there. He and his wife are so cool and he has an amazing family. We got to hear from President Nelson and Elder Cook and their wives. It was so cool. They all spoke with translators accept for President Nelson. He spoke in Spanish which was awesome. The main
themes were temples, the book of Mormon, and faith. President Nelson focused on temples and faith mostly. It was so cool that I was still able to understand him even though he was speaking in Spanish. The spirit is the same no matter what language you are speaking. This was a once in a life time experience that strengthened my testimony so much!
Also we had the opportunity to watch the Joseph Smith movie this last sunday. I don’t know what was different about this time but my testimony of the Book of Mormon and of Joseph Smith has grown so much! I know that he was and is a prophet and that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Thank you so much for all of your support and thanks again for another package it made my day and the day of my companion! You guys are so amazing! Love you tons!
