Who you are is more important than what you say."

This week has been so wonderful! So much happened, but the highlight
of the week was getting to hear from Elder Quentin L. Cook on
Saturday. The double mission conference was amazing!!! We got to see
so many people from both missions and it was so happy! I saw Elder
Jared Hall!! He goes home next month I think, so that was lucky. I also
got to see Sister McCall Padelsky!!!!! I haven't seen her for months!
It totally made my whole day. She is amazing and for sure one of my
favorite people! There are too many great people in this world. :) I
am so blessed to be surrounded by them. :)
Anyway.... The conference was amazing. They talked a lot about using
Preach My Gospel and becoming more Christlike and living our purpose as
missionaries. My favorite part was when Elder Cook said this,
"who you are is more important than what you say." He talked about how
we must be true representatives of The Lord Jesus Christ. We carry his
name with us wherever we go and we must make sure that all we do
represents The Lord. We need to become like him.
That us the ultimate goal. To become like him. Today I was reading
through the Christ like attributes in Preach My Gospel and I learned a lot. If you
haven't read that section lately you should. It is amazing. Those are
the basic characteristics we need to have to be more like him. :)

faith, hope, and charity are my favorite.
We also had the opportunity to shake his hand. That was so amazing. He
is truly a man who is filled with the spirit. At the end of his talk
he blessed us with so many things. It was amazing. The closing song
was 'abide with me tis even tide' the spirit at the end of the meeting
was so strong. It was a moment that I think I will never forget. I am
so grateful for a living prophet and apostles. They are true witnesses
of Jesus Christ and carry his authority. They speak with power. I love
I am running low on time... Sorry. :)
I love you all and hope you have an amazing week! Keep up the good
things that you are doing. I am praying for you!! Enjoy the beginning
of summer. :) oh wait.... Speaking of you can start to
feel the humidity starting to creep in. The air seems thicker and
heavier. Soon it will be getting hot!!!

Love ya!
