Well General Conference was amazing, I love having that small room with Americans listening in English. There is just a feeling there that is amazing and so much fun as well. I forgot all my notes back at the house so I am sorry I can’t reflect on the talks the way I would like to but I’ll try to bring them next week. I do remember 2 things though that I want to share:
1. When the choir sang Come Thou Fount, the spirit was sooooo strong. I remember that you could cut it with a knife it was so powerful, I absolutely loved it. Andrew could you do that Google doc thing with the track of them singing. I heard that you can download from the church website.
2. I notice that a few times the speakers quoted 2 Nephi 25:26 and that was cool because I use that scripture all the time here. Question for all of you, what does that scripture mean to you, and I’m not just looking for the simple answer but one deeper, if you could all study it and then tell me next week I would love that, if you have time you too Trevor.
3. David Archuleta was in the missionary choir and he is coming to Chile, could he be in my mission? Ha-ha that would make Andie pretty tripped out huh Trevor? Ha-ha
So we had a fun General Conference as I’m sure you can imagine. Today we just went to Pitrufquen and ate with the zone, didn’t really do anything more than that. It was fun because it was very relaxing and I wanted a day to just sit and enjoy myself.
I didn’t start anything with my ankle this week, we ran out of minutes in our cell last week and we weren’t able to contact president and tell him that I needed anything so I will be doing that this week because we just got more minutes, so hopefully this week I can start, or the next on, we will see.
So my companion is sick with a bad cough and it’s hard for both of us to sleep. He coughs all night and I wake up to every cough, we are both exhausted a lot. Just goes to show you that fall has begun here, and our mission president told us it’s going to be a very cold and wet winter. Not terribly excited about that because working in the rain is kind of spirit breaking, ha-ha. Man Andrew I don’t know how you did it. But it’s still good weather so we are happy, for now.
So how is everything going? The wedding all planned and what not? Oh how did the pictures turn? Dad sent me one and I printed it out for my room here because everyone thinks Andrew is my little brother and that this is no way that he is older and getting married so I printed that for proof. Ha-ha and my companion didn’t like it because Andrew looks happy, ha-ha that’s what you get for having a companion from Columbia.
So yah that’s what’s going on with me, we didn’t have our investigator at the general conference so that was sad, but he had to stay in Temuco and work so hopefully this weekend he will come to Gorbea and we can talk to him
Love you all
