Conference is in only a couple days!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH I"m SO EXCITED! I'm planning a meeting with another district leader in my zone to help the sisters get excited and comfortable with conference. It's going to be so fun!
The Book of Mormon challenge is going really well. I love reading it and marking all the references to the Savior. It really is amazing how the Book of Mormon really addresses all concerns and questions that we have. I've been memorizing a scripture a week and this week I found a scripture that I've never really noticed before. I really liked it, it's 2 Nephi 4:5 - Lehi is talking to his son's and I love that he knows that if he teaches them how to live the doctrine and not just listen to the doctrine they will not depart from it. It is so true that we need to do more then just listen to or talk about the doctrine of Christ. We need to ACT and do the things that he has showed to us. 3 Nephi 27:21 says to DO not to talk about doing. Ah so good!
Mom and dad I'm so so happy to hear that you have also started reading the Book of Mormon with me! What was your favorite verse this past week? Today we should be on page 84 and next week page 126! :)
I'm happy that you two get to go home for Christmas. You will have such a nice time. I don't know where I'll be or what I will be doing but I am excited to have this experience while on my mission of really focusing on what Christmas truly represents. Not that we didn't do that at home but I don't think I ever really personally let myself think of it that way. So I am excited to do that this year. Christmas is still very far away though.
I loved the General relief Society Meeting. The whole mission got to go! It was amazing! I took so many notes. It's neat that whatever you are doing in your life the words of our church leaders always address to our individual circumstances. I heard so many things about how to become a better missionary and how to help those that I am teaching. But maybe someone else in a different place in their lives heard more about motherhood or how to deal with challenges, the speaker is saying the same thing but the Holy Ghost teaches us individually.
I LOVE YOU ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
xoxoxo Until next time :)
