What an amazing weekend of Conference! I really like it this time, more than any other time in my life. I think it's because I didn't really pay that good of attention until my mission and the last 3 on my mission have been great but if it didn't talk about something that related to missionary work it didn't really apply, whereas now everything I hear applies! I'm actually getting kinda pumped to attempt some family history work, Dad you need to show me how it goes when I get back. I loved President Uchtdorf's talk about leadership in the priesthood session, and I didn't fall asleep during Elder Ballards talk so I'd call it a pretty successful conference! :)
I am really running out of steam to write these weeklys...
Our biggest highlight of the week was finding this lady Nancy and being able to teach her. We were knocking doors a week and a half ago and I saw this lady on the street and jokingly said to Elder Williams "Watch this, I'm going to go get us a lesson" and to my utter surprise she was actually interested haha! We went to her place on Monday night and shared the restoration with her. When we brought out the Book Of Mormon and started telling her it was more scripture from God she was blown away. Her Eyes were completely fixed on the book and we just had a moment of silence as she stared, and we said "Special, right?" and she responded "Yeah. Very special." Super tender moment. Can't wait to teach her in a couple days!
Sorry that's all you're getting from me this week!
