Another week just flew by...I can't believe conference is already over!! It was soooo amazing!! Good night being a missionary during conference has got to be the greatest blessing ever.. I left with so much animo to work and do it the right way.
First of all...President Rogers challenged our whole mission to read the Book of Mormon from start to finish starting the first of January and ending yesterday.. I am sooo grateful for this challenge. We had to mark the scriptures that dealt with missionary work in blue and scriptures about Jesus and the atonement in red... literally almost every single scripture has blue, red, or both markings, The Book of Mormon is TRUE! It was saved for our days to learn and grow. The promise is real.. if we give head to the teachings of this great book we will be saved.. salvation is personal.. we will all be accountable for our own actions.. The atonement is REAL,.. The Plan of Salvation is real!
Elder Holland made that very clear in his talk! Adam was just as big a part of the plan as was Jesus Christ, He called Him the second Adam. 1 Corinthians 15 has changed my view on a lot of things. As in Adam all men will die, in Christ all may live. That is so profound. Once we realize how important the atonement is our life will find more joy and peace as long as we use it. As Elder Bednar said The Atonement allows us to reach a potential that we didn't know was possible and we can not and will not be good enough as we rely solely on ourselves. We know that Jesus Christ lives and has paid for all the sins of the world,,we need to go to him with faith.
Another thing I took away from conference is just how important the families are to God's plan! I am so grateful for my family.. I am so grateful for you mom and dad and the examples you have been. Like the reminder Larry M. Gibson made "Preach the gospel at all times, and when necessary use words." You have been the greatest examples service and love. You ALWAYS put the family first. I've said it before but the fact that you both went to ALLLLL my games growing up since t-ball to my last travel game for every sport and season in every state even is the greatest demonstration of love. THANK YOU!!! I will do the same for my kids because of your examples.
Great week but if what you did yesterday still looks good today then you haven't done much today- (Coach Homestead) so Elder Lyman and I are going to make this week even better!
