Wow, Conference was amazing
Well, like the title has, I absolutely loved conference. It couldn't have came at a perfect time for us as well. Most of our mission (including almost my whole district) is sick, so to be able to have 8 hours reserved to sit down and rest, and spiritually reload for times to come was truly a tender mercy for us all. One of my favorite talks was the very first one given by President Uchtdorf. For those of you that don't know, he was here a while ago and was able to establish the first stake in the Czech Republic, and I was able to help assist in him returning to his small home when he lived in Ostrava. While he was there, I had the opportunity to meet him and talk with him some, it was truly an experience I will never forget.
One of the things I love most about his talk, is that it applies to us all, the young and the old. We are never to young to help others understand what we know about Jesus Christ, even though I'm told that almost daily, that I'm to young to tell a full grown man how to live, I know that it's not coming from us, but that its coming from God, and that we are simply his messengers, his helpers, helping bring the message to every one of God's children. I could not be more grateful for the opportunity that I personally have to do that.
Well everybody, fall is coming, that means the cold and the ice is sweeping in and wanting to take us down a level before the holidays bring us up. I encourage and challenge all of you to always look for the small ways in how we can always have Joy. There was an amazing conference talk focused on joy, and how we can have it and the ways we can always invite it into our lives. Never forget that's why we are here, and that it's on us weather we want to only endure life, or enjoy it as we go.
Thank you for all your prayers and E-mails, I love hearing from you, have a great week.
Here's some pictures of a small trip we went on today with a member, we were able to see some old bunkers made in the 1930s and the beautiful Czech mountains.
