I have seen throughout my mission that as soon as you get comfortable the Lord puts your life in the shaker you use to play Boggle. A two year mission, I believe, ends at 2 years because that is when you feel comfortable with what you are doing and you feel you have figured it out. Elder Jensen and I were doing really well and just got on. Hence why we are now separated and moving on.
This is my 5th straight transfer in a row with a different companion! I am scaring them away!! Change is starting to be my sir name. So maybe this one will break that streak!! Who knows.
Conference was pretty great. I don't know if it is the same for you but I feel like conference is like watching a national championship game..... Yep I am a missionary. Please excuse my weirdness when I come home haha. But the talks were great and as always you could sense the themes that were given. These are the themes that stuck out to me.
1. Developing your own testimony
2. The Law of The Fast and Fast Offerings
3. Following and Sustaining the Prophet
4. The Sacrament
It was a great conference. We had a few of our investigators come and they really enjoyed it as well! This last week we had many meetings. 1 every single day so not to much to report back to you on. Moses is doing well and has received the priesthood now! It was good to see that. Also at General Conference there were so many members who were from the London North Ward that I got to see. I saw Lawrence again (the man I met at the bus stop a year ago) and he is still strong in the church. So good to see. I love this work!!
Listen to Elder Bednar's talk on Missionary Work again! I loved it. Pay attention on how he describes how the members and missionaries work together. Go share this awesome gospel. We don't do it out of obligation. We share it because we want others to feel the happiness we have experienced in our lives. I love you all and will share more next week. Today we will go cite seeing so I will attach the pictures next week!!
