General Conference was really great, I hope everyone got a chance to watch the whole thing and will take the time to review each talk in the coming months. We all know the scriptures are important but we were all reminded this last weekend of the importance of modern revelation from living prophets.
We stopped by one of our investigator’s apartment Saturday night in between the afternoon and PH sessions to invite her to come on Sunday. To our surprise she agreed! Before leaving I felt to share a scripture from my studies in John when Jesus says to two of John’n disciples, “Come and see.” In the Sunday afternoon session I felt like Elder Bednar’s talk was an answer to our prayers, especially seeing as he opened and closed with that same scripture. In addition to that, she had been planning on coming to the morning session, not the afternoon but her plans got changed. A testimony builder for me that the Lord really is in charge. We were able to give her a church tour afterwards, it all went just really great.
We hosted a ward activity this Fri for the BOM challenge. It was a great chance for them to share their experiences and talk about themselves. We closed with this video, I hope you’ve all seen it. it really puts things in perspective of what’s most important.
