This week was wonderful! We taught some really great lessons and Sis. Fraser....well, she's just as amazing as ever. We also had the special opportunity to hear from Elder Quentin L. Cookfor a mission wide conference. It was so great.
He talked to us about a bunch of different things including how he feels the Spirit when he assigns missionaries to their mission. But one of the things he talked about was the relationships we have with others. He mentioned four in particular that were directed to us as missionaries but I think it can apply to everyone. They were to love the people, love and respect our companions, love our mission president and his wife, and most importantly to love the Lord. He talked about how in every situation, in every relationship, we have to change our mindset. It needs to be one of love and humility, just like the Savior. That even though we may find it hard to love some people whether it be those in our community or those in our families, if we have a mindset to love, respect, appreciate, and learn from them we'll be able to see the blessings that can come from it. We will be able to feel the Spirit more abundantly in our lives and then be able to act on it more and more frequently do the things Heavenly Father would have us do. It just kind of turns into this wonderful cycle of continually becoming more like Christ, which is awesome because that's what we're all trying to do anyway. Funny how that works out isn't it?
It was great to be able to listen to him speak. The Spirit was just so strong when he testified it was almost tangible. It was so cool to be able to sit there and listen to him. Sis. Cook spoke as well and she is just adorable, she had us sing "Hark All Ye Nations". It was so cute. They also let us all come and shake their hands which was just awesome. So cool.
But other than that, I'm doing great. Things are wonderful. We have a new baptismal date coming up in March. A 13 year old boy. We're both so excited for him. Wonderful things are happening here in Hollister, it's just great.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!
