General Conference!!

First of all... I am so grateful for our Prophet Thomas S Monson and the 12 apostles! Watching General Conference as a missionary is the best thing in the world. We dressed up and went to the church all Saturday and Sunday! I had all my questions answered and I know that if you had questions they got answered too! My favorite talk was from Elder Bednar! He is my favorite! I hope everyone had a good time watching conference and I am looking forward to April!

My week was a little slow because my companion is dealing with some serious stuff at home.. We did service at this thrift store Wednesday and Friday​​ which was super fun! We did service with some elders who live close to us!

The best teaching experience on my mission happened on Tuesday. This guy named Adam who is scared of Jesus and has been taking medication for 14 years. We went over to his house and taught him about the restoration. The spirit was so strong especially when we were talking about familes. I am so blessed to have such a good family. I was bearing my testimony and invited him to be baptized on October 22nd. HE SAID YES! but... he moved out of our area last week so we cant teach him anymore:( he moved less than a mile out of our area so I was pretty disappointed. The sisters are awesome missionaries so he will be in good hands.

This kid in our ward named Nick Francessconi asked us if we could come to his baptism on Saturday and we went before conference! Took me back to when I was baptized. Hope everyone has a good week! This is my last week of training which is super weird! Also.. HOW BOUT DEM COWBOYS!!
