Mission life is absolutely unreal some days! I feel like I'm on the most gnarly roller coaster in the WORLD! This week has been full of emotions and craziness! The only thing that gets me through rough days is my prayers! I beg & plead with the Lord to give me strength. It would be humanly impossible to be in the same 6 buildings....15 acres... for 18 months if I didn't have the Lord here with me! The spirit I feel each day and the different people I meet are the only way I can do this!

his personal brand of comic relief, as only Blake can. Not sure
how he got access to Emily's planner.
Her message to him:
"Thanks for the note Blake!!"
So since it's getting close to conference we've had a ton of CUTE families here on the square... partly my heart rejoices, but then it's like a huge dagger to my heart that I can't even hardly touch all these precious children! But the spirit the members bring here is undeniable! I literally can see the light of Christ just BEAMING off the members who visit! I look at all these families and it gives me such huge motivation to raise such a strong family in the gospel. Preparing for Conference is so fun, but STRESSFUL!
Society Broadcast with my|
precious Sister May
Sister Asay (MTC COMPANION) & I at the
Relief Society Broadcast! LOVE HER!
Being able to go to the Relief Society broadcast was such a huge blessing! I can not even express in words the spirit I felt. When the prophet walked into the room 21,000 woman just shut their mouths and didn't even move a muscle... I had chills all over! The talks were amazinnnggg & I learned so much. But what shocked me the most was that I was praying the morning of thinking "hmmm, what would really uplift & help all the woman in the church including me...." Then, "all the covenants we make in the gospel," came to my mind & BOOM! What was the broadcast all about... COVENANTS! The spirit enlightens us sooo much! When the First Presidency was walking off after the broadcast, they came right up to where the Sisters were sitting and waved to us! But the BEST of all was Elder Holland & Christopherson... They came up and blew us a million kisses waved and put their hands to their hearts! I melted! There spirit is SO strong... They're amazing and made us feel soooo special!
SUCH CLOSE SEATS!
Birthday Sister Deleu... |
our fun lunch at the Church
I LOVE MY MISSION!
It's sooo important that we have a living Prophet to receive guidance from. Each and everyone of us can learn sooo much for Conference if we are prepared! Think of questions you have or struggles you've been going through and pray to Heavenly Father that you will be able to get answers during conference! I promise you will receive answers through the spirit!
