Family and Friends,

That was probably one of the most powerful conferences that I have ever seen in my life! I was for sure spiritually filled Saturday and Sunday and am now full of new ideas, notes, and goals. I hope you all got something out of the conference. These are surely the last days... and the talks and messages proved it.

The last week was great. We worked hard to prepare a few people for baptism... only to have them move to the North Mission. That was fun. The only thing that matters is that they are baptised this Saturday. Lucky North Missionaries that get to be present. I hope they send me a picture.

When I was on my way to Cyber today there were 100 things that I wanted to write home to say... now that I am here... I can`t think of anything to say. I could restate: I am impressed that these are the last days. Elder Holland`s talk was powerful and the Priesthood session was one-of-a-kind. With all the new pressure we are receiving as missionaries, and how the talks and the words of the prophet panned out... only served to increase the urgency (I hope you noticed that word twice in the opening prayer for the Saturday Afternoon Session) to get people baptised, on to other covenants, and into the temple now. There really isn`t as much time left as some may think. Yet there is not so little that the work can`t be accomplished either.

I am so glad that I am part of this great work. Sometimes I ask myself if I am actually helping out in the grand scheme of things... and I hope I am. Maybe my contribution is small but maybe it will make all the difference in the lives of the people I am serving. That is how it will have to be for everyone. God does not show his love with huge all-powerful miracles. He shows his love in the little things each day. The things we take for common: our families, friends, time, school, jobs... the peace we currently enjoy. So it should be with us. Constantly helping the Lord`s work, our personal lives, and our families progress.

Thanks for being a constant help to me!

These are the last of times... these are the best of times.

  1. Thank you for sharing your mission blog- it has helped my testimony these past two years. Some decisions are hard to make like extend or not but if the Spirit will just not let our mind move on your decision likely needed to be changed. Richard and I were asked to extend one year so we had to resubmit our application we have a meeting with the Stake President tomorrow to get our "new Calling". Proud of you and looking forwad to hearing your report. Aunt Karen
