https://www.lds.org/blog/what-did-the-prophet-say-at-conference?cid=HP_SU_3-4-2016_dOCS_fGC_xLIDyL1-A_&lang=eng I just loved how everyone who spoke was SO bold with so much love. It was just amazing. Probably the best Conference I have experienced in my life. For real. #thankful. We were able to fast with Jose this week about baptism. He still is wondering about it, but we know in God's time, everything will work out. We are still learning Spanish too. Haha! He is great! :) For quite some time we have been trying to meet with a guy named Sam, and we finally got to! It was wonderful! I tell you, the Book of Mormon is where it is at! We read it and people will light up instantly! It is so sweet! https://speeches.byu.edu/talks/russell-t-osguthorpe_what-if-love-were-our-only-motive/ This week and a lot of weeks I have learned, everything the Savior did was out of love. Something that really hit home to me was this, "The Savior is our example in everything - not only in what we should do, but why we should do it. His life on earth was a life of invitation to us - to raise our sights a little higher, to forget our own problems and reach out to others." Yep. I just love that. Definitely not perfect at that, but we keep seeking and trying as Elder Holland said in Conference. :) I love the Savior. He really does love, and He has shown us how, and how wonderful that is to me. I love this mission, sometimes I think, "I love y'all! <3 Y'all now make JD'S! (Jesus Decisions!)" 1John 2:4-6>>> "4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. 6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked." Walk with Him. This week will be great! :) Thank you for all you do for me! I am so excited!! Don't worry, I will NOT peek in the box before my birthday! Haha! So happy that P-day is on my birthday - what are the odds!?! It is a blessing! I will be saying goodbye to my teen years forever on Saturday, April 9. It should be fun! I miss my cute dog, Abby, but this doggy is giving me loves, so I love her, too! Another reason to be happy!
