Hi y'all! - October 6, 2014

Hi y'all! I hope everyone had a great week and a super conference weekend! 

This week was really fun and rewarding and we had a great time watching conference.

Hermana Ormsby did the pepper challenge and it was so funny! She basically glared at me the whole time, and Sister Stidham and I just sat there laughing. Haha. I love my companions so much. We probably laugh way more than we should, but hey, porque no?

This week we went on exchanges and I headed out to Leon Springs in Hill Country, where you can see George Strait's house on the hill. Good times there! The people were so nice and we taught some amazing lessons. 

Here in Castle Hills we taught some really good lessons too. One of our new investigators is so prepared it's incredible, and he loves learning about the gospel. He wants to be baptized and loved learning about the Plan of Salvation. Things in our area are going really well, and we continue to see the blessings of talking to EVERYONE. It really is the best way to do things! 

Conference was AMAZING. If you didn't get to watch all of it, please do! None of our investigators were able to make it to any sessions, so we watched it at the church, with members, and then the Slaughters invited us over for breakfast and conference, so we watched it at the mission home! haha. We had a great time over there. 

i would love to hear what y'all loved about conference and what you learned. here's what I learned:

Christ truly is our Savior and Redeemer and He was completely selfless. His example is perfect, and we really, really need to follow it! yes, we are blessed with our agency, but we need to use it correctly. And it's the small things that make the big difference. Elder Scott talked about the basic things we need to create habits out of, and prayer and daily scripture study make the biggest difference. Be open in your prayers to Heavenly Father, and remember through whom you pray: Jesus Christ. 

The talk that hit me the most was Elder Jorg Klebingat. He was so straight up, and it was so meaningful! He said that "selective obedience brings selective blessings". Please read his talk again, it was amazing!

And conference ended perfectly with President Monson saying that we need to be thankful followers of Christ and examples of righteousness.

We're so blessed to have the gospel, and living it is a blessing too.  I'm blessed to be able to dedicate all of my time for a short 18 months to help others come to this knowledge, and I love it! 

i hope everyone has a fantastic week and again i encourage you to go see meet the mormons this week! 

love y'all!!
