SOO HAPPY FOR THE NEW APOSTLES!
So conference was great. Duh! Its conference! Only twice a year do we get to listen to the prophets, apostles, and leaders of the church share inspired messages! (And the church magazines but....ya know what I am saying)
So this week we, as a mission, also had Zone conference with 3 zones (half the mission). President and Sister Soares spoke to us. It was awesome. The only not awesome part about it was that I had to sleep on the ground in the LZ´s house in Caicó with 13 other missionaries. Not too fun. But the conference was actually really good. This time, he talked about families and working with the members and bishop. It was truly inspired because that is exactly what I needed to hear.
General confence. Amazing. Watched it in English even though (unlike last general conference) I can understand 95% of it in Portuguese. But I watched it in English in the secretary room on the computer.
Anyway, I would have to say the theme for this confernce was faith, obedience to the commandments, and trials. Some people think commandments are a constraint rather than a blessing. Heavenly Father shows his love for us by protecting us, or in other words, giving commandments. We show are love by living by them! Remember, wickedness never was happiness.
I can literally talk about conference for hours haha
Other than conferences, it was a pretty normal week. Sweating. Teaching. Working. Sleeping.
Scripture of the Week: D&C 50:24 Things from God are light. When we seek and obtain light, we will continue obtaining light until "the perfect day." So cool! Watch the Mormon Message from David A Bednar about light.
