So conference was amazing! I loved every second of it. I felt that everything was said just for me. I was able to take everything and see how it apples to my life. I´m so grateful for Conference and the spirit it gives us to be better and to do better. Something that really touched me was when Gerrit W. Gong was talking about opening our hearts again. All of us already have had a confirmation that this is the church of Jesus Christ. But at time we seem to forget or it doesn´t seem as important as it use to be. He sited a line for the Poet T S Elliot that stuck to me, "We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time." So when we are getting use to the gospel in a way that we are becoming less excited to do the right. This is when he need to explore again where it all started.
We need to "open our hearts to the Book of Mormon like you did the first time" And we can open our hearts again to anything about church. The will help use stay faithful to the end.
At the stake center I was filled with Joy to see a bunch of the people I baptized there to watch Conference. It was a special moment because I had that confirmation that they aren´t just going to church but they have callings and they are willing to drive an hour to watch Conference at the stake center.(Picture of Victoria and her parents that haven´t been baptized yet).
I´m really proud of my family and the explain they are to me. To my Grandparents to the newiest nephew. Family is everything. As my brother Daniel once wrote to me "Family is everything, bigger is better." I´m excited to enjoy this in my life and apply the gospel to my future family.
This week is going to be really crazy because we have 16 missionies going home and 21 coming to the mission. The new missionaries look great and they are going to love the best mission in the world!
