I have learned so much this week! We had Elder Nelson and Elder Evans come to our mission this week and talk about iPads! Guess what we are getting new iPads! :) haha I get a new iPad for the last transfer of my mission... Lucky right? Haha :) But I guess this past year the iPads we have been using were just test iPads and now we will be getting the new ones. :) But during the conference the many focus was on why they are now using iPads and helping us truly understand the reason for these recent changes. The reasons for the iPads is not just for "hastening the work" and giving us the latest technology to use, but it is preparing missionaries for the rest of their lives to learn now to use technology in the right way. To start now, to reset, and set good habits that we can use for the rest of ours lives as we use technology. It was so amazing! I just felt this overwhelming joy. They are doing all the can to help us prepare to fight against Satan. They are truly creating the armies of Helaman. It was a great conference. :)
And did you Know Elder Nelson is 90 years old?? He is so full of light and truth.
We had a some great lessons this week but a highlight one was after the conference on Wed. (Wednesday was just the best day ever...) :) We taught our investigated about prayer and she told us that she believed in Jesus Christ and that he was her savior. It was a great moment. The Spirit was so strong and guided that lesson so much. :)
Thursday we had zone conference. Best zone conference ever!! All the missionaries leaving in the next transfers bore their testimonies. It was a weird feeling to be up there, but it was a good feeling. I felt a lot of change and could see the changes that have happened in myself over my mission. I am so grateful for the power of the atonement in our lives to change us. God truly does take ordinary people, and helps them to do and become extraordinary. The gospel can change us if we allow it to. :) We must make that choice. That choice is worth making. :)
I know this church is true and I will be faithful to it for the rest of my life.
I love you all so much!
Thanks for your support!
