First things first. I am beyond grateful for a loving Father in Heaven that has called prophets and apostles to lead and guide His living church. How blessed we are to hear their inspired words each general conference. This past conference was truly incredible!
It was probably the highlight of my week!
Elder Chia and I are working with a few people right now that are doing pretty well. Still in the first stages of sincere conversion. With a little bit more time, effort, and divine help, they'll be on their way.
Some of the most powerful moments from this week come from being in the middle of a lesson and Heavenly Father opens my heart and allows me to see His children through His eyes. It's at these times that I've loved my mission the most. It's in these times that I feel like I never want to give up on anyone. and It's in these times that it hurts to see people walk away from the opportunities the Lord has given them. In a small degree I can understand the way our Heavenly Father feels when we fall away from Him. Stick to the basics. Life can be simple, and still be full of true joy.
One of my favorite quotes from GC:
"Pull out the weeds, and water the flowers." - Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Have a happy week! I love and miss you guys.
