Week 35: General Conference!

This week went by super quick! It had to be because of General Conference, which was amazing!!!! It is so cool we are able to listen to Prophets and Apostles, men called from God to lead and guide us! It is so funny how excited I get when General Conference is coming around! But I think there are certain things said in Conference that are meant just for us that no one else catches. Our Heavenly Father truly knows where we are and what we are going through. Although we were only able to listen to the prophet for a short time how great was that time.

I think that one of my favorite things said was by Elder Holland. He said, "[Lucifer] knows he can't improve, he can't progress, that worlds without end he will never have a bright tomorrow. He is a miserable man bound by eternal limitations, and he wants you to be miserable, too. Well, don't fall for that. With the gift of the Atonement and the strength of heaven to help us, we can improve, and the great thing about the gospel is that we get credit for trying, even if we don't always succeed. Remember, the Lord blesses those who want to improve, who accept the need for commandments and try to keep them, who cherish Christ-like virtues and strive to acquire them."

I love that he said we get credit for trying even if we don't always succeed! How amazing is that! All we have to do is try! This is something we have been asked to do since we were little so it is not like it is anything new and shocking.

Exchanges With Sister Shattuck.
We have so many amazing Missionaries in the Washington Everett Mission! I am so thankful I get to go on exchanges with them all! Sister Shattuck is so amazing! She is from Utah and has been on her mission....this is her second transfer. She is so bubbly and out-going.  She  is going to do some amazing things! I learned so many things from her. We were able to go and teach the Law of Chastity together to our Recent Convert James and she had only taught it once before, she did so amazing! It is awesome when a missionary and I go on exchanges and have never taught together and it all just clicks! BLESSINGS!!

Then I got to go on an Exchange with Sister Foster!!! It was so much fun to be able to go on an Exchange with her! Everything just clicks and we get the work done. We actually had the chance to put up a fence for some of her members. She is serving in Monroe and it is so cute! I loved it! I had a lot of fun going out and doing some yard work like that! One of my favorite things as a missionary is the fact that I get to talk to everyone! Certainly when the person that you are with is spunky and loves it to!

I am excited to see what this busy week has in store for us! I love you all and hope that you have an amazing week! Enjoy SPRING BREAK!
