I love the Prophet
General conference. The best. Oh man, every single talk was spectacular. It is true, conference in the field is a different kind of experience. I have been looking forward to absorbing all that advice and encouragement for so long now. I just felt so spiritually full afterwards. Didn't you love President Monson, President Uchtdorf, Elder Maynes, Elder Scott, and Elder Soares talks? So gooooood. And President Peterson surprised us and showed up to our chapel for the Sunday sessions, love that man, it was a pleasure to see him. I love how President and Sister Peterson openly say I love you to all the missionaries here, I know we all feel their love. But what I really learned from conference is that God needs to be everyone's priority. If he is not, life is going to be a lot harder for you. I have learned that. When you seek to draw closer to Him, there is a difference in your life. I also wrote a post it and taped it on my desk and it is from President Uchtdorf's talk. I wrote, "How is your walk with Christ today?" Good daily reminder.So this week was great, but a little slower than last week. We had Ward family home evening on Tuesday. Oh my goodness, these Filipinos make me laugh so hard. The games are SO fun with them. (Side note: it literally just started pouring outside, I can't even hear the sounds of my keyboard... its intense... and I almost left the house without an umbrella cause it was sunny when I left... classic.) But it was a good time with our amazing ward. Love them all.
