Hello, all! This was an interesting week.
We had exchanges on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Wednesday, we had zone
conference and I got to go to the youth activities for Odessa and Land
O Lakes. I got to see Reese and Bishop and Sister Cook, but even
better...I got to see Nicole! She seems to be doing really well and
was excited to see me. She was planning to watch the Sunday morning
session of General Conference with the Cooks.
The new Easter video came out this week! It is so good! It is called
the Prince of Peace. We are so excited to share it with people. It
really shows how we can find peace through Jesus Christ. Who wouldn't
want that?! I hope you all can watch it. It brings the Spirit so
powerfully every time I see it.
On Friday, we taught Marissa and it was only her this time. It went
really well! She was cheerful and willing to participate. We showed
her the old Easter video because we didn't have the new one yet, and
invited her to share the new one with a friend. She said she had a
friend from school already in mind. She is awesome!
Finally, on Saturday and Sunday, it was conference! It was amazing.
I love hearing from the prophet, apostles, and other leaders of the
church who are so inspired by God to know exactly what we need to
hear. My favorite talk was Elder Jeffrey R. Holland's. He talked
about my favorite hymn, There is Sunshine in My Soul Today, and what
we can do when we don't feel that sunshine. I really needed it.
Anyway, we watched conference at the church on Saturday and again on
Sunday morning because we had a couple families tentatively planned to
watch it with who fell through. But on Saturday afternoon, we went to
the Kemples' and it was super fun! We had lasagna and cheesecake
Well, that's about it. I love you all and hope you have a wonderful week!
