Christmas for Missionaries! (a.k.a. General Conference)

HOLY WOW!!! WAS CONFERENCE AMAZING OR WHAT! You may have heard that General Conference is like Christmas for the missionaries. You would be mistaken. General Conference is BETTER than Christmas! It's like Christmas and Easter and Birthdays all rolled into one! It's a veritable spiritual feast!

I hope that each of you had the opportunity to watch at least part of General Conference and feel the Spirit bear testimony of the beautiful truths of the gospel. We have a prophet on the earth today, and twelve apostles, who receive direct guidance from the Savior Himself. And they speak to us. Is that not the sweetest message you have ever heard?

If you didn't get the chance to watch conference, here is the link:

Some personal favorites were Gary E. Stevenson, who talked about priesthood keys; Mervyn B. Arnold on going to the rescue; D. Todd Christofferson and his tribute to fathers (love you Dad!); Dieter F. Uchtdorf, who gave us hope that we can be rebuilt; and Jeffrey R. Holland's encouragement to just keep trying. Please take some moments to review the words that spoke most to you.

I know this church is true. I felt it strongly as I listened to our beloved prophet and apostles and other leaders of the Church. I know that the Savior lives. This is His church and His kingdom upon the earth.

General Conference in the Stake Center:
Hermanas Nilson, Ehlert, Martinez, Newell, and Watts
My face when I spotted members from Minga down the hall!
Aline and Jessica, members from Minga Guazú.
  P-day Activity:  My comnpanion and I went to the Itaipú dam just outside of Hernandarias.  It's the largest in the world and generates electricity for both Brazil and Paraguay.

We found Elder Sanders and his parents - they are from Uruguay, and he just finished his mission in Asunción.  They are doing a little sightseeing on their way home.
