This week was great! I got a good hardworking companion and I was able to go around and meet many of the Ward members, who by the way are really great and super missionary minded.
General Conference was amazing and I loved all of the talks! I will have to go back and re read the the talks in the ensign once they come out. My favorite was the talk by President Thomas S. Monson where he talks about how we can draw on the strength that God has promised is because of us living the Word of Wisdom.
We also got to celebrate my companions birthday on the 1st which was awesome and the members here take such good care of us. I feel kinda like I am in a mini Utah.
We have to bike like 3 miles to get into our area from our apartment so I will be super fit after I am done here!
So it is kinda weird riding by the casino at night! My companion compared it to Lehi's dream of us going down the sidewalk is the straight and narrow path, the Casino is the great and spacious building, and the really busy road is the river. I thought it was a great analogy and something I think about as we are going down the road.
I know that this church is true! I am grateful for the opportunity that I have to serve in the Redhawk Ward and to work my hardest for my Savior. I am grateful for the opportunity that we have had to watch General Conference and to hear from the prophet! I know the Book of Mormon is true and that by reading it we can each come to know of the truthfulness of it!
Thank y'all for all of your love and support!
I love and miss y'all!
