I am really excited for General Conference tonight! The whole week we have been inviting everyone. Since we are in Central London and the church is in a prime location we will hopefully have many people come this weekend to listen to the words of the Prophet and Apostles. I hope you all have questions prepared to ask in your heart. I am finalizing mine today.
I taught in China this week! We have an investigator who is in China and we Skype taught him. Good stuff.
We have a really diverse group of people that we are teaching. Italy, England, Finland, Sweden, China, Romania, Spain, France, Peru, Malaysia, and Israel are all the countries of people that we teach. I love it!
Today a member is taking us through the Free Mason Temple then to Five Guys after! It will be great! That is about it for this week.
I am thankful for this Easter Season. I was thinking last night and wished that Easter was a bigger Holiday. Christmas is blown up and huge but Easter is quiet and not too many people have traditions that remind them of what Easter means. I would like to change that in my life. The only reason we even celebrate Christmas is because of Easter. It was because of what Christ suffered in Gethsemane and on Golgotha that he became our Saviour. It was also because of his glorious Resurrection in the Tomb of Joseph of Arimathaea that he became our Redeemer. Easter would not be Easter if Christ never did what He said He would do. I am extremely grateful Christ performed the Atonement for me and you.
It is interesting that when Christ appeared to Mary Magdalene on the morning of His Resurrection, the first thing He commanded her to do is to, "... go to my brethren and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and your God." (John 20:17).
It is our sacred responsibility to do as Mary did. That is, to declare that He Lives,for "He is not here but is Risen." What a special time to be a missionary. I now leave with you a challenge. As you wake up tomorrow, I would ask that you put yourself in the shoes of Mary Magdalene. Standing face to face with Christ in the tomb. Ponder on who He would like you to tell that He is Risen.
Have a great Easter! http://www.mormon.org/easter
