General conference was so good this year! I totally didn't appreciate it enough when I was home but the guidance that we receive from our church leaders every 6 months is so helpful. The two session ending talks on Sunday were fantastic and the priesthood session was fantastic this conference. Everybody here seemed to be disappointed with President Monson's short talks but I really liked them. Even though they were only a few minutes long they were powerful. We watched conference on a Roku at the branch building in Downtown Danbury. Nobody really showed up to watch it in the chapel so we (our District) watched it in English.
Other than Conference, we had president interviews on Thursday. Interviews are great because it's so rare to get personal advice and help from President because he's so busy. The very next day we went down to Scarsdale for MLC. It was a pretty intense meeting, but it was really helpful and we learned a lot about what President expects from the mission. Since MLC was Friday we had zone meeting on Monday, which is like having MLC but condensed from a 5 hour meeting to a 1 and a half hour meeting. It's always a stressful weekend but since it was conference it was a little less. Once it was over it was such a relief, especially since it turned out pretty well.
We had a pretty cool Miracle on Wednesday. We were searching for a less active member and found the nonmember son of a stake president in Honduras. It was so cool the son pointed out how it was such a miracle. He seems pretty interested, we're excited for him.
Thanks so much for the emails. I love you and pray for you every day.
Have an awesome week!
