This week was pretty cool! One of the highlights of the week was that we had zone conference which is an 8 hour training with usually 1 or 2 stakes (1-3 zones per stake). It's led by President and Sister Porter and sometimes Assistants to President or Stake Presidents and they are so spiritual! Sister Porter got a really powerful discussion going with our whole stake on the Sabbath and WOW, the Sabbath is so awesome!!! I really never thought of keeping the Sabbath as very important or very special. I really wish I had. People seriously, its fantastic! The point was brought up that if we live till we are like 80 we have the opportunity to take the sacrament like 2860 times or something similar to that. Which if you are really looking for how you can change in the next week to better prepare yourself for next Sacrament that is 2860 opportunities for the Lord to shape you and tell you what you need to change or work on. BOOM! That's pretty sick, huh? So seriously, think of how important the Sabbath is, what kind of message are you trying to send to your Heavenly Father when you do things?
Then something cool! When we have zone conferences they check all the cars and see who keeps them the cleanest and most up to date on fluids and tires etc... for maintenance and the top 3 usually get some kind of a reward. And our car (shared with another set) got 1st place this time! WOOT WOOT! Which means we get put into a raffle out of like 20 or 30 other missionaries for a brand new 2016 Toyota Corolla which would be sweet. :) We currently have a 2011 Corolla.
Then our Branch had an awesome Trunk or Treat. SO MANY of our investigators came, it was so sweet. Also one of our new investigators Angie Funderburk and her family came, but Angie does a youth group for kids who have had hard lives and lots of them came. Soo cool! And we get to go share a message with the whole youth group today at 5, cant wait! :D
Hope you all have a great week. Love you all!
