Mission Conference with Elder Bednar…

That is an awesome quote! I really like it!

It’s going okay up here it’s been in the teens and 20s so yeah pretty cold! I love the rain right now it’s just cloudy and it’s supposed to snow today and tomorrow! The rec center is awesome we work out every day but Sunday! We do service for the rec center as we are doing inventory for them in the shed. Every Wednesday we go across the street from the rec center and go to the senior lunch and wait for them to finish and clean tables and mop the floor then after that we play games with them!

Friday was awesome! We had a mission conference and Elder Bednar spoke to us and that was so cool! He didn't have a message prepared for us but instead it was like a question and answering thing between us and him and it was about what did you learn from his previous talks one was called ask in faith, seek learning by faith, and converted unto the Lord and he would ask what we learned from this so it was like a discussion and it was cool! He also told us when we say are prayers don't pray for objects like don't say "thankful that we all made it to Church today and please bless those who didn't make it that they will come to Church next week" he said don't say that because it’s like your relying on someone else to get them to Church and that we need to act upon it! So that was awesome being able to hear him speak to us. He is very funny!

So yesterday we visited this guy who has not been to Church for over 30 years and he asked us a question that really got my companion thinking saying why is that we eat ham on Easter and Christmas when we are focusing on the birth of Christ and his death because Christ was a Jew? Jews I guess don't eat meat so my companion and I didn't know how to answer that question really tough question to answer!

Hope you guys are doing great! Love you!
